Celebrate Earth Day at Dutch Bros! There's a party going on at the Dutch Bros Coffee stands around the Pacific Northwest today. In celebration of Earth Day, Dutch Bros will discount your coffee drink by $1.00 if you bring your own mug!
I had a conversation with the Baristas behind the counter this morning, and I asked them what Earth Day meant to them. 'Recycling and being kind to the planet,' was their response. I smiled, and thought, these kids really have it all together.
While I've been a minimalist for most of my life, living in the country, growing my own fruits and vegetables and conserving energy and goods, I still consider myself part of a wasteful generation. When I think about how we throw away an apple that has a little bruise on it, or cheese with a little mold on it, I wonder what our grandparents would think. They used everything... they were a 'Waste Not, Want Not' generation. We can learn so much from them, yet they're a dying breed.
Today, I happily rejoiced with the young Baristas at Dutch Bros, who called attention to this day in Celebration of Earth Day. They made me smile and of course, an old song came to mind. Enjoy this beautiful day everyone... and do what you can to make this planet a better place. I know I will ;)))
