I see durable mugs at Starbucks. The larger ones-maybe not the corner financial district types. Also, it seems that what the writer is talking about is more of a failures of the state/local legislation. I have lived in nj and ca and recycling was mandatory in both places. also, technically the cups arent recyclabl, they are compostable. It's my understanding that soiled paper and cardboard are not recyclable. I'm not saying that Starbucks is some bastion of greenery, but the biggest problem for the writer seems to be the local culture, recycling laws and also consumer education.

"increasing the packaging to product ratio and generating more plastic waste" that was exactly my point when I posted this on FB a couple weeks ago. I also thought maybe the packaging and bottling people were behind this ;) Not to mention this Is completely inane and is just some lame "look what I.did!" law or something. Why not ban big macs? No hamburgers over 6oz! No bags of potato chips over 7oz! Hey you, put that frappucino DOWN!

Puppets out of lone socks, buttons, scraps of felt and glue. I would love the dog, but I'm not picky. This would go to one of my nieces, not sure which.
