Your Guide to Eco-friendly Coffee and Tea Makers

Do you have a daily coffee habit? You’re not alone. In fact, you are one of 150 million Americans who drink an average of 3.1 cups of coffee per day.

Perhaps you prefer tea. On any given day, more than 160 million Americans are drinking tea, of which 85% is iced.

Unfortunately, it takes a lot of resources to produce a cup of your favorite beverage. From the farm to your coffee pot, 37 gallons of water are used to produce one cup of coffee. By switching to tea, you can save almost 30 gallons of water usage per cup!

You care deeply about the environment, but can’t imagine life without your morning cup of Joe, afternoon tea time or iced tea on a hot summer day. What can you do to green your beverage consumption? You can start by purchasing only eco-friendly, Fair Trade Certified coffee and tea. Then, take care to invest in the most eco-friendly products available to brew it.

Here are the top 10 items to green your coffee and tea making routine!

The next button is not activated so the 10 you listed are not available to see. Can you fix?

09 Oct 2014

Just add the number 2 to the end of the URL to see #1, change it to 3 to see #2, etc. I was hoping all 10 would be makers and disappointed that Chemex was not included in the list.
