A Plea to Those Who Love Starbucks!

If you read my blog at all you know I use Starbucks quite a bit...in fact it is really my second office!

My boy is with me for the summer and he goes to Starbucks in the morning with me (and reads his book). A few days ago he pointed out to me that I was killing trees by getting a paper cup each morning...and wanted me to buy a Starbucks coffee mug so I could reuse it each day when I got my coffee.

After being guilt-ed (he is worse than my Mother) into buying the $7.95 mug, I found out that each time I purchase my coffee I will save 10 cents. I realize that does not sound like much, but in about three months (yes...I drink a lot of Starbucks) the cup will pay for itself...and I will be doing something good for the planet.

...So all you Starbucks Realtors out there...if we all switch to a reusable cup we can help the Earth and save a little money...sounds like a perfect plan to me!

It is so funny how much we learn from our kids.  I bet the coffee actually tastes better in a real mug too.

Thanks for the information. I have learned that most of the paper we use daily comes from trees that are farmed and grown for paper. Few if any come from forests...How about we save some trees by urging alternative materials when building homes.

A little bit of guilt can go a long way, now you have more incentive to use that cup at Starbucks and slowly but surely it will pay for itself.

Eileen...exactly. What a simple way for all of us to help. When each person does a little...it will surly add up...and you get to save a little...and that can add up as well.

Good morning, Jeffrey -- kudos to your son for this simple yet very useful suggestion.   Have a great day working, drinking your coffee and, of course, people watching at Starbucks.
