In 2013, I’ve already thrown one paper coffee cup away (on New Year’s Day).
I think about this a lot, but I haven’t ever really thought enough about it to take any action. In New York, a lot of the time you are out and you want coffee and you don’t have a mug, or you’re in a rush and don’t have time to have coffee to stay, or you just forget.
But I saw this tweet from Dear Coffee, I Love You this morning and it really impressed me. So I’m going to see if I can do my part. I’m not going to call it a resolution, but I’m going to make a concerted effort not to use disposable cups. And I’m going to try to keep track when I do. It will be like a little game I play against myself.
