We Live In A Paper Cup World

One little thing, the disposable coffee cup.  58 billion coffee cups are thrown away in the USA annually.  That’s 58000000000 cups.  20 million trees were cut down to make those cups.  12 billion gallons of water were used.  What for?  Convenience.  We don’t need disposable coffee cups.  We use them because they are convenient. 

How about getting a stainless steel reusable coffee mug and remembering to take it with you?  How about not letting yourself buy a coffee if you forget? 

Some coffee shops offer a discount for providing your own cup.  Starbucks claims to offer 10 cents less on a cup of coffee if you have your own mug.  This is an easy one.  Coffee to go?  I’ll take an non-disposable world, please.
