How can a company that claims to be a sustainability leader get it so wrong when it comes to their advertising?
If this ad represents the thinking at Keurig then something is very wrong there. Do they not understand that the waste problems facing our planet are holistic in nature and not something that “goes out the window” when we go to work?
We must all work together to find solutions and at the core of this collaboration must be an understanding that solutions are not EITHER/OR but rather it’s THIS AND THAT. We have to come at our challenges from ALL angles. For Keurig to air a commercial that shows a man in a car (a hummer no less) adding to our plastic waste problem by throwing his garbage out the window is neither funny nor ironic irregardless of his actions at home.
Does this commercial sound like that of a sustainability leader. Is this really how Keurig views sustainability?
