Starbucks coffee is so good, but the plastic-laminated disposable cups are so bad for the environment. “…they are almost impossible to recycle, meaning they don’t degrade for up to 500 years. In Britain alone, an astonishing 2.5 billion cups are discarded each year” (1).
Just like bringing your bags from home to the grocery store (you are doing this, right!?), you can bring your coffee mug or thermos to your favorite coffee shop.
