Bring your own mug
Have you ever counted how many paper cups and plastic lids you and your co-workers collect from the coffee shop over a week? Even if they do get recycled, there is an energy cost to do it. Buy your own ceramic coffee mug with a lid and use that instead.. In a quote from www.greenstarbucks.wordpress.com
“‘If only 50 customers a day in every store were to use reusable mugs, Starbucks would save 150,000 disposable paper cups daily. This equals 1.7 million pounds of paper, 3.7 million pounds of solid waste, and 150,000 trees a year.’ In 2000 when this report was generated there were only 6500 stores worldwide. In 2007 there are 13,168 stores which means over 300,000 trees could be saved from landfills by BRINGING YOUR OWN CUP.”
