Eco-gesture of the day – Take 6 reusable cups!

Did you know that using reusable cups rather than disposable paper or foam cups is better for the environment? You probably did, but when you get a drink to go, say from Starbucks or Jamba Juice, how often do you use a reusable container? I’m going to bet not very often. Most people know that reusable kitchenware saves resources and money around the home and office, but many people do not carry this behavior over when ordering to go. Both Jamba Juice and Starbucks offer discounts to people who bring their own reusable containers. That’s good business-they save money on cups and they keep you coming back for more with the discounts. So the next time you head out for a smoothie or some coffee, save yourself some money and save the world some resources by bringing your own cup.
