Single-serve coffee pods are destroying the environment, and here's the solution

Jan 15 2019, 4:41 am

Hands up if you love coffee.

You’re clearly not alone, with the vast majority of the Canadian population enjoying 1.5 billion single-serve coffee pods each year. That’s a lot of coffee pods. Some might say too many, especially considering their environmental impact.

It just so happens that most of these pods are ecological dead-ends and end up filling our dumps and landfills, adding to our ongoing waste crisis.


If you’re searching for an eco-friendly solution to this problem, Canadian company OneCoffee offers 100% compostable single-serve coffee pod that will help reduce the country’s waste problem with a product that is locally-made, with organic and fair trade coffee. This means you can still enjoy the convenience of coffee pods, all while knowing you’ve made the right choice for the sake of the environment.

The company uses 100% Arabica, high-quality coffee beans that are individually tested and judged for aroma, flavour and mouth-feel, so you know you’re getting a quality cup of coffee. The varieties OneCoffee offers include the Breakfast Blend, Colombian Blend, Decaf, Ethiopian Blend, French Roast, Peruvian Blend, and Sumatran Blend.


OneCoffee pods are compatible with Keurig 2.0 machines, as well as K-Cup compatible single-serve coffee brewers such as Keurig, Cuisinart, and Hamilton Beach brewers.

Where can you find OneCoffee?

OneCoffee is available at major retailers and specialty stores across Canada, including Loblaws, Superstore, Metro, Sobeys (all in the organic aisle), and Whole Foods Market, as well as many independent natural food stores.

So if you enjoy your morning coffee with a side of ecological responsibility (and who doesn’t?), this could be the pod you’ve been waiting for. Be sure to check out OneCoffee’s website, Facebook, or Instagram for more information and updates.
