Reusable Replacements: Your Morning Coffee

If your morning routine wouldn’t be complete without a cup of coffee, you’re certainly not alone.

You don’t have to give up your coffee habit entirely to protect our planet. To show you how easy it can be, Earth911 rounded up five common single-use coffee products – along with some rad (and reusable!) ways to replace them.
