Banned K Cups: Hamburg takes a stand for the environment, should others follow suit?

  • Yes, I think so.

    As humans we need to be more concious of the trash we are leaving behind. Industrial packaging and convenience are the reasoning behind landfill overgrowth. There are plenty of other ways we can limit trash output, but this city is taking the lead on the movement. Though K cups seem like minimal trash produced, there are individuals consuming multiple of these per day. They are not cost effective to the consumer or the company.

  • Yes, others should follow suit.

    Yes, others should follow suit because we waste too much as a society and it is hurting the planet. We need to give up some of our luxuries in order to save the world. People need to be willing to sacrifice now and then in order to help other creatures.

  • There is no need.

    If hamburg is really getting rid of all the KCUPS.. That should probably be enough to offset the rest of the world. S'all good. I like what George Carlin used to say about plastic, paraphrasing: Maybe the Earth just wants plastic and people are a way for it to get more plastic..

  • It doesn't help.

    K Cups are a drop in the bucket compared to all of the pollution and waste that goes on in the world. There should be a way to make the cups recyclable, but banning a product that people want to use is not the answer. Also, people who want them will just import them from other places.
