WATER STEWARDSHIP

Supply Chain

By 2020, 100% of K-Cup® pods will be recyclable.

Designing a recyclable K-Cup® pod is only one piece of the equation. We also want to be certain that the majority of our consumers can effectively recycle their used K-Cup® pods. We’re actively engaged with other businesses, recyclers, and industry organizations to understand the whole system and contribute to solutions.
