I drink a lot of coffee, and therefore I make a lot of trips to coffee shops. One day I was walking back to the office with one such cup of coffee, and I realized I throw away a lot of paper cups a year.
This, in a nutshell, is how Save the Cups got started.
We don’t need to lecture, and we don’t need to throw out statistics.
So we won’t.
What we’d like to do is give you a reason not to continue wasting paper cups, and in the meantime have a little fun. To us, this seems like a much easier reason to change our lifestyle than t-shirts that say Everytime you drink from a paper cup you’re drinking the Earth’s blood!
Although if you’d like a t-shirt that says that, I’d be willing to consider it.
Save the Cups, once it officially launches on January 1, will be a community of people, all committed to changing one habit and thereby making a huge overall impact.
