EP Engineering has incorporated The Grounds to Grow On program into our everyday office sustainability practices. The Grounds to Grow On program converts brewed K-Cup packs into useable alternatives. While they continue to research and develop other earth friendly packaging solutions for the K-Cup pack, the recovery program provides an alternative method of disposal, outside of the landfill. We agree with Ground to Grown on when they say “A second life spent enriching soil and creating energy sounds like a second life worth living”. They promise that when you say goodbye to your brewed K-Cup pack they will make sure its next journey is a good one.
EP believes that when each one of us contributes in a small way to living in a more sustainable community, our collective efforts can show the real Power of Recycling. Recycling conserves our natural resources to protect and preserve the planet for our children. It reduces the waste that builds up in our landfills and goes into incinerators. Recycling also reduces the production of greenhouse gases caused by the extraction and processing of raw materials. This saves energy by reducing the need to extract and process those raw materials.
Recycling also helps create new and needed jobs for both the recycling industry as well as manufacturing. It’s a win for all!
Consider implementing this program in your own office or home. We can all do our small part to help!
In an effort to reduce their overall carbon footprint, recovery bins are made from 75% recycled content, reused approximately 15 times, and shipped via the UPS Carbon Neutral Shipping program.
