This is another great item for the environment. Reusable coffee filter for your Keurig. If you drink more than one cup a day, think of all of those plastic pods that you are tossing in the trash. Save the planet – One pod at a time!
If you like your coffee hot for more than just a minute, Yeti is the cup for you. Plus it’s reusable and most coffee shops will fill this for you instead of wasting a throwaway cup. And it works for cold, too.
