The Chinet Corporation came out with a product that should never have been released to their adoring public – takeaway cups to use in the comfort of your own kitchen. The idea is, you brew your own coffee, mix it with your favorite milk and sugar substitutes – and then put it in this disposable cup with a lid. That way you don’t have to wash a cup. You can just throw it away when you get to your office!
I might suggest – buy an insulated mug with a handle – and wash it. Landfill contribution? Zero. Wallet depreciation? Zero.
And on their home page, they have the boldness to say, “Help Preserve Nature, Learn More”. Admittedly they try to be environmentally aware in some of what they do – but selling such a completely unneeded product is not responsible. Shameful, even.
Apologies to those of you who wanted a light and fluffy post for your Friday.
Update: See the comments. I changed the title in Shane’s honor. He has a good point. (I had titled this post, “Evil and bad” – a bit excessive.)
