Grants Office Eliminates Plastic Waste from Keurig Coffee Machine

The Grants Office has recently adopted a new practice that will save money and save the environment.

Like many other offices on campus, they have a Keurig coffee machine. Each time a cup of coffee is made, it uses a small plastic disposable container. Bruce Moseley recently purchased an Eko-brew which is a container that can be used over and over again.
Here is how it works. Simply fill the Eko-brew with your favorite brand of coffee before each use. It is that easy! Instead of using a disposable plastic container for each use, you use one. It will save the office money, but more importantly, it will have a significant benefit to our sustainability program.

Price Chopper has the Eko-brew in stock. Also, here is a link to their official website:
