Looking for BETTER TASTE and LESS WASTE in single cup coffee? This Earth Day, Cameron’s Coffee announced the launch of BetterBrew Eco Coffee Pods to solve the two biggest problems facing plastic single cup coffee: taste and waste.

About Cameron’s BetterBrew Eco Coffee Pods

Cameron’s BetterBrew Eco Coffee Pods use a coffee filter instead of a plastic cup, so your coffee tastes like it would straight from a traditional drip coffee maker. You get real drip brewed coffee with the convenience of a Keurig® brewer, without the burnt plastic taste.


The waste created by traditional K-Cups is a real problem; current production levels create enough K-Cup plastic waste in one year to circle the earth over 10 times. Cameron’s BetterBrew Eco Coffee Pods are made of renewable plant-based materials with compostable* lidding and rings that will return to the earth within 90 days. BetterBrew Eco Coffee Pods are another step in Cameron’s commitment to being one of the greenest coffee roasters in the world.

The #BetterTasteLessWaste Campaign

To spread the word about our eco-friendly pods and reduce the number of K-Cups going into our landfills, we started the #BetterTasteLessWaste campaign. The campaign is simple – consumers can go to our website and take a pledge to switch from plastic K-Cups to Cameron’s BetterBrew Eco Coffee Pods.


An average single serve user drinks 1,241 cups a year, so if just one consumer took the pledge, the number of coffee pods entering our landfills each year would be reduced by that amount. Our initial goal was to reduce the number of K-Cups entering landfills by 1 million.

However, in just one week, people pledged to keep 10.5 million single serve coffee pods from entering our landfills, over 10 times our goal! Even now, the number still ticks upward. See how high it has reached.

Bye Bye K-Cups. Hello Cameron’s BetterBrew Eco Coffee Pods.

You can still make a difference by taking the pledge. Join Cameron’s in our mission to make better coffee for everyone, and invest in a better world too.
