Ask any hipster about coffee, and they'll tell you that in this day and age there is more than one good way to make a cup o' joe...french press, moka pot, pour over, and now even stir brew.
However, there's one ridiculous coffee 'innovation' has simply got to go: The K-Cup. There are now more than a few different single-serving coffee pods on the market, but the Keurig Green Mountain version is not only the most popular, but also the largest and most impossible to recycle.
As a result, they have attracted the most heat for their design...which may have just hit a tipping point when a digital production company from Halifax, Nova Scotia released a Sci-fi short...where K-Cups attack.
It's not clear why we need to dispense our favorite caffeine kick from something that looks like a printer cartridge, but in case you really don't feel like giving up on K-Cups all together, you might as well at least sign a petition to get pressure them to figure out a way to make them more recyclable. I mean... how hard can it be?
Also, if you dig a feel good story, this petition was also created by the film-makers and the whole thing was an office pet project born out of frustration with their coffee maker's wasteful tendencies.
