Starbucks has made an environmental stewardship that by 2015 100% of their cups will be reusable or recyclable and they are asking their customers to help.
By taking the mug pledge you will save 10 cents on your drink while saving hundreds of coffee cups from being discarded into landfills!
For the past year I have been taking my own travel mug to Starbucks. Here are my mug pledge stats:
- I average 2 visits a week to Starbucks
- 2 visits a week X 4 weeks in a month = 8 cups saved per month
- 8 cups saved a month X 12 months a year = 96 cups saved a year
- 96 cups, straws, & cup holders I prevented from going into the landfill just by taking my own travel mug.
What a huge impact!
I encourage you to take the Mug Pledge too. We can all make a difference, one small change at a time.
Hint: I have 2 travel mugs this way I always have one in my car while the other one is being washed.
