Interesting Fact - Waste


Hamburg, Germany has banned coffee pods from all state-run buildings as part of an environmental drive to reduce waste.

(In fact, the inventor of the American version of the coffee capsule, John Sylvan, has admitted he regrets ever inventing them due to their environmental impact:  Some pods contain 6 grams of coffee, but have 3 grams of packaging, and because they are made of mixed materials, combined with organic content, they are extremely difficult to recycle.

Imagine if cars were sold like that.)
