Saving the Planet One Cup at a Time – GLORYBREW Introduces 100% Compostable Coffee Pods Compatible with Keurig K-Cup®* brewers

MIAMI, FL – 13 Mar, 2017 –

The Environmental Problem of Single Serve Coffee Pods

Nine billion difficult-to-recycle, plastic K-Cups®* were sold in 2015 alone, creating a circle around the earth ten times if placed end to end.(1) Duplicate this year over year and contemplate the ramifications. Regarding his creation of the Keurig®* machine, inventor John Sylvan stated, “I feel bad sometimes that I ever did it.” In fact, the popular “Kill the K-Cup®*” viral movement was created because of the detrimental impact the original coffee pods create on the environment.(2)

Glorybrew®, a Miami based coffee brand, is changing this negative connotation with the introduction of one hundred percent compostable, single serve, BPI® and Rainforest Alliance Certified ™ coffee pods for Keurig®* machines. This is big news for the environmentally conscious coffee drinker, particularly the more than one in four Americans who currently own a single-serve brewer.(3) Glorybrew® drinkers are awarded with the convenience of single-serve without the waste.

The Compostable Solution

Recyclable, biodegradable, and compostable products are not created equal. Proudly, Glorybrew® coffee pods are compostable, meaning that within about eight weeks the entire pod will break down into clean soil to be added back into our ecosystem in an industrial compost facility.

On the other hand, “biodegradable” implies nothing more than that any such labeled object will break down in an indefinite amount of time and “recyclable” refers simply to anything that can be reused.

Even though Keurig®* has a goal to make all pods recyclable by 2020, (still three years and 57 billion, or so, more sold pods away) eco-friendly, compostable Glorybrew® pods will remain the greener choice both now and then.

Glorybrew® and the Future

Because Glorybrew® pods use a mesh filter instead of plastic there is an even distribution of water as coffee is brewed which creates a smoother drink. In addition, BPI® and Rainforest Alliance® certifications ensure that the pods are compliant with strict guidelines that authenticate the compostable claim, as well as benefit the families, farms, and communities from which the coffee is sourced. Glorybrew® is truly coffee with a conscience.

Combined great taste with the sustainability factor, Glorybrew® is set to lead the coffee pod industry in a deliciously revolutionary ecological movement. Available on Amazon initially in three roasts (The Night, The Duke, and The Noble) with easy access for Prime shoppers, along with the satisfaction guarantee offered by the company, Glorybrew® is forging a brighter future for the planet, one coffee cup at a time.
