Hi my name is Heather... and I am a coffee -aholic.
I am not proud of this, but it has become the harsh reality of my life. I cannot function at work or school with out that first cup of coffee. If I could take my coffee intravenously...well let's just say i have a problem. Lucky me- I have a STARBUCKS down stairs at work. So every morning I walk , zombie like, downstairs to get my fresh cup and start my day.
A friend gave me the lecture "Starbucks is ruining the world" and advised me of the following~
-our Starbucks cups are not recyclable
-I am ruining the environment
So here is the solution: I can either give up coffee(would get fired), bring it from home (not the same), or start thinking...
I did some research.
I am going to start reusing the cups! I will wash out and reuse same cup! yay! and i found a great etsy seller to help with another solution! Those little cardboard skirts for the cups aren't the best thing either... and its not so cute...
Check out this "going green " accessory from www.Pritchke.etsy.com. Great idea, great price, great for the planet!
