My free Starbucks

Thanks to Starbucks I’m enjoying my free coffee today. Last week I wrote that Starbucks would be offering free coffee to customers who brought in their own mug. Using a reusable mug is part of my daily routine and I think part of the point of this initiative was to make bringing your own reusable mug part of the norm. Although Starbucks won’t be offering free coffee everyday there is a savings by bringing in your own mug; there is a 10cent discount for providing your own cup.

A friend of mine was inspired by earth day today and bought a reusable mug. It is efforts like this that will make the difference. Depending on how many coffees or teas you buy each day depends on how quickly your recover the cost of the cup, which doesn’t include the cost of your impact on the environment. Plus many of the coffee shops offer discounts on out of season cups, but really does a mug go out of season?

I have a quite a few reusable cups I’ve collected over the years from various events. My daily one was donated by The Promotion Resource Group but my favourite one is from my bf; it’s a green Masters cup he brought back for me.
