From Pumpkin Spice to Peppermint...Choose Reusable!

Ah, life in Louisiana right now. It's still 85 degrees in the afternoon, but it's technically the middle of fall, and now that Halloween is over, all the Christmas things are about to be thrust in our faces.

Even if it's hot outside, coffee is always a go-to, and I am not above a good pumpkin spice latte. But I am above a bunch of disposable cups!


One of the easiest ways to cut the amount of single-use items you use and throw away is to rock a reusable mug. Make your coffee at home then head out the door, or bring it to the coffee shop with you. Some coffee shops, including Starbucks, will even give you a small discount if you have your own mug.


While a disposable cup may seem like a stylish accessory, you can actually make reusable options fit your style more. Invest in a few mugs that match your personality or your favorite wardrobe pieces.


You can get your pumpkin spice or peppermint lattes, and get a great photo, without being unnecessarily wasteful! Reusable is Instagrammable, my friends.



And because I'm already hearing about Starbucks holiday cup controversy (...) I will reiterate what I shared on Facebook last holiday season:
Forget the Starbucks #redcup...no matter what color or design it is, it's still going to get thrown away after one use! Not cool. #BringYourOwn and choose reusable for your coffee.
The design of a single-use cup isn't going to matter when that cup is litter in a parking lot, yard, or river. Let's shift the outrage from whatever color or design it is to the material that it's made of. Choose reusable and your mug can be whatever design you want, while being better for the environment!
