weekly simple eco tip, 2.6

Sometimes I enjoy sitting at a coffee shop while I brainstorm, research and write these blog posts. And while I do that, I'll look around at all of the disposable coffee cups at everyone's tables.

And oh, how do those add up in landfills.

But if you like to get a good coffee treat sometimes, it's easy to be greener about it. Bring your own reusable mug in (insulated of course!) and Starbucks gives you 10 cents off your order every time! (And on Earth Days in years past, they've given you free coffee if you bring your reusable mug!)

Even if your favorite coffee shop doesn't give you a small discount for using a reusable mug, they will still pour your coffee in it! Just let them know you have it when you're ordering.
