Drink Coffee From a Mug

Here is the problem:

People like convenience -> Convenience leads to using a to-go cup -> using a to-go cup leads to it being thrown in the trash -> the cup thrown in the trash leads to more waste in our landfills -> more waste = bad news.

Check this out:


The Waste:

-Our single use paper cups are often times lined with plastic, which then as a result is not recyclable.

-Each cup is responsible for 0.24 lbs of C02 gas emission

-Each daily coffee drinker could potentially create 23 lbs of coffee cup waste per year!

Here is the solution:

Drink coffee from a mug.

It sounds strange; I get it. However, it could just maybe save the planet a whole lot-a-bit.

Also: Better Flavor in a Mug Β 

In going for convenience we miss the most important part of coffee; the coffee. Our paper cups are actually ever so slightly tainting the flavor of the coffee. When drinking out of paper you actually in turn get a small taste of paper in each sip.

Stop drinking your cup and start drinking coffee.



For a great reusable mug, try this YETI Stainless Steel Vacuum Insulated Mug!

Or get a mug from your LOCAL COFFEE SHOP!

  1. Perhaps you are also drinking some of the plastic in the lining? I just learnt recently that many teabags have a plastic content. it encouraged me to use loose leaf tea. I have to say I have never used a disposable cup – seems such a strange idea!

  2. My family laughs at my devotion to my travel mug. It’s like a favored pair of jeans, a reliable old car, or the cheerful tail wag from a not to young dog. It’s familiar and part of my good life.
