Feel good about drinking coffee with GoJava recycling program

gojava

 I love coffee. I love brewing it at home, going to big coffee shops and small coffee shops a like. Right after having Little Dude, I was pretty much fueled by coffee. It was a bit crazy but me and coffee have a full on love-affair. I’ve also owned almost every possible coffee maker on the market. Seriously. I also own a variety of mugs to drink my coffee in. I own big mugs, small mugs and a variety of travel mugs. About a year ago after getting my newest Keurig, I commented to my husband that I hated the amount of waste we were producing daily by using single brewing pods as they aren’t recyclable. I just pictured an entire landfill covered in K-Cups and Tassimo pods. He agreed and soon after we switched back to our 10 cup coffee maker. My daily waste was minimal but I missed the ease of brewing a single cup in an instant.

My Keurig was getting quite dusty sitting unused in the closet until a few weeks ago. Enter GoJava. If you live in the Toronto area (Etobicoke, Mississauga, Thornhill, Markham, Richmond Hill and Vaughan) this is your answer to feeling good about using your single serve coffee machines!  First you place your coffee order on the GoJava website. You are able to order online and receive your order the next day (excluding weekends and holidays). Delivery is free for orders over $40 for the areas listed above and deliveries can be made to homes or offices.  I was impressed at how quickly my order was at my door. I ordered at 9 pm and the box was waiting for me at my door the next morning at 10 am! That’s quicker than any other online service I’ve ever used!

When my order arrived it came with a bin to put the used pods in. When I place my next order I will leave the bin outside and GoJava will pick up the used pods. GoJava has a partnership with TerraCycle Canada to recycle the pods. Once GoJava collects enough pods they are sent to a special processing plant where they are able to separate the coffee grinds from the plastic. The coffee grinds are then composted and the plastic is used to make plastic lumber and other things such as park benches and playgrounds! It’s comforting to know that GoJava pays TerraCycle a fee to make sure that the coffee pods are properly recycled.

My bin isn’t filled yet, but it’s being filled daily with my K-cups. I love being able to brew my single cups of coffee while knowing that they are being properly recycled. That’s something to feel good about! It’s a win-win for all of us!
