Think you can’t be an eco-warrior and a Keurig® aficionado? Think again because we found seven sustainable options. This guide is your one-stop shop to brew guilt-free cups of joe with eco-friendly Keurig® coffee pods.
What makes these pods eco-friendly? There are no plastic cups. Instead, these brands use compostable plant-based materials. Remember that “compostable” products are certified for processing at a commercial facility. Yet, some successfully compost these items at home using these EPA composting tips. Also, look for organic, Fair Trade, zero waste, and Enveritas for further sustainability value.
All the pods we have listed are compatible with most Keurig® brewers. But none are affiliated with or approved by Keurig® (except the My K-Cup® reusable filter).
These plant-based heroes wear the triple crown of Fair Trade, USDA Organic, and BPI-certified compostability (pouch and pods!). Say goodbye to plastic guilt and hello to happy worms.
Compatible with most Keurig® brewers. Not compatible with Ninja or Hamilton Beach units.
