Save a Cup for Earth Day, Get Free Coffee

Conserve. Get free coffee.

In honor of Earth Day today, you can bring your travel mug to Starbuck's and get a free cup of coffee.

On any day though, you can bring your travel mug or tumbler to Starbuck's and receive 10 cents off your purchase, or you can order your drink "for here" and drink out of a non-paper cup.

Starbuck's Earth Day article says that 1.2 million people participated last year. That's a lot of saved paper cups! And that's just one day.

What if we used our travel mugs every day?

Made in America

Made in America

There is a new movement happening, anything handmade and local are hot items these days. You can see this happening online at Etsy.com, your local craft shows during the holidays and your local farmers markets in spring.  Who wouldn’t want something grown or made/crafted with skilled hands from a neighbor?  I know I do! 

I know you’ve seen it.  But do you understand it? The new buzz phrase… “Made in America.”  Sounds great doesn’t it….Say out loud  “Made in America.”  

Ok.. so maybe I should have said “ Buy Local”…  Or what about “Handcrafted,” “Handmade,” and “Homemade.”  I have to ask the big question?  Do you buy local? Or just grab something from the big box stores?
