      Plastic pollution needs to end! Carry a glass or metal mug, please! The mentality of "use and dispose" is so old news!!! Come on folks, let's get with the program and live sustainably!

      “Human beings are so destructive. I sometimes think we're a kind of plague, that will scrub the earth clean. We destroy things so well that I sometimes think, maybe that's our function. Maybe every few eons, some animal comes along that kills off the rest of the world, clears the decks, and lets evolution proceed to its next phase.”

      ― Michael Crichton, The Lost World

      Plastic is a huge problem on this planet. It never goes away. I have grandchildren who will inherit all the chemicals and just plain trash that plastic bottles leave on our beautiful planet. Please stop using plastic bottled drinks of any kind.
