The gods must be crazy. Every morning, thousands of good upstanding Americans get coffee to-go, slurping as they walk/blackberry/talk/subway/bus/drive etc. Every afternoon, coffee addicts like myself do it again.
It’s not only eco, it’s Buddhist (you know, all that stuff about the ‘present moment’) to chill the eff out. Sit down, enjoy your cuppa joe for-here, and save some tree and all the gas and shipping that went into each cup’s journey: milled, shipped, made into a cup and printed upon and reshipped…not to mention the 99% unrecycled never biodegrading plastic lids. Or, if you want to offend hippie Buddhists and yet still have a clean conscience, you could buy this. Or, you could bring your own, as my friend Carrie does.
With thanks to Kelly Mikler of Sole Technology for the tip (Kelly was, in turn, inspired to mention the I Am Not A Paper Cup by Graham Hill of Treehugger’s rival eco-arch mug, the famous We Are Happy to Serve You).
