Here’s a way you can help the environment in a small way… say no to a cup insulator sleeve the next time you get coffee-to-go.
- save that much addition to the landfill
- save the coffee shop the cost of the insulator
- save the transport costs for that insulator sleeve to the shop and to the landfill
- prevent trees from having to be chopped down
You say, “I don’t want to burn my hands!” Well, take a moment at the shop to let the coffee cool. You can’t drink it that hot, anyhow! Use the extra time to meditate, to enjoy looking at the people in the line or to read the newspaper.
If everyone would do this, thing of the cumulative difference it would make!
Ironically, this sleeve says, “Do as little as possible.” I would add, “…to the environment.”
