The concept for my assignment that comes from an article I had read about the Kureig and the consequences of its consumerist gratifications. The machines have gotten recently popular, especially in the last year. This is a problem because the specifically designed k cups are NOT recyclable. This a pretty tough issue, considering that over 9 billon k cups were sold last year. So, I decided that an urban setting with pretty scenery would be a stark contrast to k cup trash cans filled with k cups that cannot be recycled. Coffee grounds litter the sidewalks from busted containers.
