Green Your Caffeine: Press, Please

French press

If you’re like us, you need a jolt of caffeine to start your day, especially on these cold winter mornings. You already know to buy organic, fair-trade, and shade-grown coffee and tea, so this week we’re giving you other tips for making your daily cup eco-friendlier.

Tip #2: Use a French Press

Save yourself some money by making your coffee at home. Consider using a French press instead of a drip coffee maker -- presses don’t require a paper filter. Besides the obvious waste-decreasing benefit, no filter also means more flavor. If you tend to make coffee only for yourself, French presses are great because they’re often smaller than drip machines, so you can just brew a single serving.
