Coffee Mugs: Saving the World!
Thu, Mar 26, 2009 at 11:22 PM
One of the easiest ways to reduce waste is to bring your own mug or thermos! So, here are a few suggestions to do your part:
• Keep a reusable mug on your desk at work. You can save as many as 500 disposable paper or plastic cups per year by using a cup of your own.
• Bring your own thermos into coffee shops. Some coffee shops (like Starbucks) offer a discount if you bring in your own mug. But the real savings is knowing that.
You'll help to reduce the amount of disposable paper and plastic cups and, in some cases, cardboard cup holders that end up in our landfills.
