Starbucks High Price for Sustainability

Previously posted on Sociology of Sheena.

I love all things Starbucks.

As evident by...

Ode to Starbucks

Mmmmm. Starbucks just makes my soul so very happy!

In an effort to be more sustainable I purchase various starbucks mugs for travel. Being the OCD person I can sometimes be..half of these mugs are ONLY for tea and the other half are ONLY for coffee. That is because no matter how much you clean a coffee travel mug...it still smells of coffee. So then if you put jasmine tea in that mug...it still has remnants of the carmel coffee I had yesterday.

Coffee Mug on the left and Tea Mug on the right. (I have one at home and one at work)

I also have to two pictured below. One is for water, juice and all that whatnot. I have one at work and home. I was so completely on my soapbox about sustainability through using real dishes as oppose to disposable coffee mugs...that I forgot to realize I was going through bottles of water all the time. The other one is for my hot cocoa.

Today, just an hour ago, I went to Starbucks to get my Strawberry Lemonade Frap...since they don't have the Mango Tazo one like in London and I discovered a new thing.

A travel mug for my fraps and other cold drinks. And is double insulated. So it keeps the fraps....frappy and your hands NOT frozen. No more plastic cups when I go in for my fix. My collection is complete.

Now all I need to do is grow my own strawberries and ruhburb and make the little treats they sell for way too much.

We'll see.
