Green Tip 20: Skip the Stick and the Coffee Cup

SKIP THE COFFEE STIR STICK or STRAW

In North America, 138 billion straws and stir sticks are thrown away each year!  You don't have to start drinking your coffee black for the environment sake but if you can, add your sugar and/or milk/cream first before pouring the coffee.  If you buy to-go ask the Barista to do this for you or ask for a metal spoon ... why not, never hurts to at least ask.

Try stir stick alternatives or keep a metal spoon in your bag or office desk.

Reminder: When buying coffee to go, don't forget your travel mug.
