Latest Planet-Saving Fad…Bring Your Own Cup To Starbucks

Bring your own mug to Starbucks.   Hand it to the clerk when ordering your drink and they will fill your mug and give it back to you.   


Starbucks won’t  have to use a paper or plastic cup.   This is the latest effort to save the planet by reducing the use of throw-away food & beverage containers and wrappers. 


Your mug can be big or small, but no bigger than 40 ounces.  


As for cleanliness, Starbucks won’t clean your mug, so if  you find a mug in the trunk of your car, make sure it’s clean before you hand it to the clerk.
