Easy Green Tip #2: One sugar or two?

When I read this article about coffee stirrers, I thought it was so clever that I just HAD to share it. According to California Coastal Cleanup: plastic stirrers rate sixth in the trash found along California's coast. Next time you go to Starbucks, tell them you want to put your milk and sugar in first and you can avoid using stirrers all together! Or better yet, bring your own "to go" coffee cup. Anyway you slice it stirrers are a pretty unnecessary part of our daily (sometimes 3 cups daily) lives!

Join me in telling Starbucks this idea. If they implement it worldwide, maybe we can eliminate some waste!
