You can save the planet – one cup at a time.
Well, I am overstating the impact of switching to a ceramic or glass drinking vessel, but you can save a lot of waste by asking for a “drink it here” vessel when you visit Starbucks for a sit-down drink next time.
Here are a few advantages:
- You’ll prevent landfill accumulation.
- You’ll save on manufacturing and transport costs for the cups, straws and lids.
- You’ll enjoy the nicer feel of smooth ceramic or glass against your lips, compared to a thin plastic lid or a straw.
- You’ll make me happy.
