I make a concerted effort to ask for my coffee in a mug.  Rarely am I given the choice and sometimes I forget to ask; I am human.

The baristas say they are too busy to ask and people want disposable anyway.  (Actual conversation had at a Second Cup with a barista as she reached for a disposable cup to serve my coffee order and I quickly and urgently interjected “Please serve it in a mug, I’m staying”.  I then engaged conversation about asking patrons .)

I want all coffee shops to post a sign reminding customers to ask for a mug and plate, if having food.  I want it to stand at the cash register and I want it to post how much waste is created each day by coffee cups!

Every small action counts in a big way.

Do you know the amount of garbage generated each day by disposable cups - please sit down for this - 2,739,726!  That is 1 billion a year divided by 365, and it is estimated over a billion disposable, non recyclable cups a year go to landfill so 2,739,726 is a “conservative figure”, if one can say that.  

If half the consumers asked for a mug for their coffee, each day, we would save approximately 1,315,313 cups going to landfill - A DAY!!  How easy is that!!
Please join my petition get the signs up in coffee shops and become a responsible coffee, tea, beverage consumer.  If we all do our part change is easy!
