Eco Confessions: What's Your Non-Green Guilty Pleasure?

Eco Confessions: What's Your Non-Green Guilty Pleasure?

You use me first thing in the morning. You can't seem to live without me. You try to reason with yourself that because you are producing less than you were before you are not being wasteful... what am I?

Yep, it's my Keurig and it's my guilty non-green pleasure. It's the one thing. I knew I wouldn't be able to live without it so I even protested the purchase when my husband originally wanted one! I know they are wasteful and I try to be better than the average Keurig user. I use Fair Trade Organic coffee, I use my own beans in the empty K-cup to eliminate the plastic K-cup waste and I'm not throwing out a pot of coffee anymore.

Everyone has their vice. Whether it's not being able to kick the paper towel habit or not being able to live without Mr. Clean's magic eraser, it doesn't mean that we aren't still trying to live a greener life. Do you have a non-green eco confession?
