    A bad food opinion
    I treat chocolate as a treat. I know in America you can buy it anywhere and have it at anytime but I rarely have it. An example is when I worked at Walmart they would 75% of the time give us doughnuts {usually the chocolate glazed ones} I argued how I would like fruit instead siting how they toss a lot of the party sampler trays a lot. Just they would say I would look into it and do nothing more. I bought a large bag of peanut M&Ms today and sadly would rather have fruit

    IIRC a problem with keurig was their whole "individually packaged cups of coffee" thing was stupidly wasteful and plastic pollution contributing? maybe there was other bad stuff too.

    Most people just plop the cup into the trash. I feel there should be more ways to recycle items and building them out of other than organic polymers. As look at all the corn used for Ethanol and the alchemical way it's made you could just make various plastics from it that will decay [they already do this but it's real throw away ones like plastic grocery bags
    It's silly and stupid [and one of the another reason by in large the state is flat broke} Waste Management redid it's contract with the city {they had one from 2 years ago they got in trouble about since they did it in closed door meetings which is a no no in the city's charter} So recycled items are now bi monthly instead of every week with the trash
    But really we need to find more ways to recycle and build better products [that are easier to recycle or are not toxic to take apart} As it's just piling up and wildly out of control

    Beyond the investment in the bag of candy, I’m not certain why this would be a sad thing.

    I suppose the ubiquity of sugar in contrast to the difficulty of procuring tasty, fresh fruit could be described in negative terms.

    The recyclable ones are slightly better (a lot of places in the US wont actually recycle that kind of plastic even thought it's technically possible, UK is likely less crap on this front). The carbon footprint of making the pods is still way higher than a bag of beans or preground coffee though. And lots of people don't bother recycling the pods even if they can, or think they've bought the recyclable ones but actually haven't, etc etc

    Also on a personal level I get twitchy about the psychological messaging with this kind of product - as if literal piles of hydrocarbon derivatives are a normal thing for a society to produce in the name of (mild) convenience. But I also spend a lot of time reading about mass extinctions, which makes me twitchy about pretty much everything. You should see me watching car ads.

    I found a thing on Twitter yesterday about rich people in the popular ski resorts in the us who build massive houses they occupy for two weeks a year but heat the roofs and driveway (!) all year round so as not to have to worry about snow accumulation. Among other issues. So compared to some, I think you're good.

    So, he can reduce his food consumption footprint, and their energy footprint, by eating the rich.

    Yeah, I'm by no means calling you out for using pods, we live in a hellscape of bad decisions all around. Hell recycling in America is extra fucked now as China increasingly doesn't want our plastic and other recyclables (and nevermind how dumb it is to ship those across the globe we never intended to process them ourselves) and so we literally have piles of recycling being sorted and sat around before then being transported AGAIN to the landfill. Making recycling actually worse than not recycling in some cases. It is madness.
    More pertinently the guy who invented/popularized the Keurig has publically said he regrets it, and never thought through the scale of waste.

    There ARE apparently some reuseable pods now, though how good they are I have no idea. For single shot coffee with barely more work, I really like an aeropress, and it's super easy to clean. (Also Keurigs terrify me because I've seen horror stories of them going uncleaned)

    Apparently even when China did accept the US's recycling they weren't actually recycling a lot of it, just pocketing the fee and dumping most of it in the ocean.

    I talked to a Pacific oceanographer about it once, wow was that a bummer of a conversation.

    I will look into reusable pods (I got a vertuo).

    No issue for me, I drink black. However, the wife likes the flavored stuff.

    I'll have a think about how I can reduce wastage as much as possible.

    I really dont see any type of coffee capsules in the future, I dont recall them existing in the past, so I will label them a fad, and keep using my regular non-capsule coffee machine, wich still exists, makes better coffee cheaper, and doesnt waste so much plastic.

    Why people buy nespresso or other type of capsule machines, I cant understand it.

  • bowenbowen How you doin'? Registered User regular
    A lot of those pod machines do have a reusable pod product. You just have to put your own coffee grounds into it and give it a quick rinse.

    My father has a Keurig and whatever brand of pods he is using gives you a special bag to mail used pods back for recycling.

    anyway coffee pod machines are powerfully offensive to me even when you use the recyclable pods and the only use case scenario that doesn't piss me off is for people with manual manipulation/physical disability issues that prevent them from making coffee any other way

    Most of the homes around me {nearly 80% but what I found out last summer and owned by the same person/company} are rentals. think about that in about 5 mile square they own nearly 200 homes but that was the fallout from 2008-2013 when few people lived on this street and neighborhood
