Earth Day 2014 on Building Moxie

Earth Day Logo

Today, April 22, 2014, is Earth Day 2014.

As has become something of a tradition in recent years, I’d been invited again this year to submit an Earth Day article for Building Moxie.

My topic this year is the single serving coffee maker, and an informal assessment of its environmental impact. The upshot of my investigation is that, as long as you eliminate the use of pre-packaged, disposable serving pods, the single serving brewer can be surprisingly environmentally friendly:

Please give my article a read, and if you’d like to post comments, please post them on the original article, rather than here.
