Manage the Mess

Forget The Red Cup

Image-1 (14)

I’m a mess in quite a few ways! I wake up late, a lot. I refold the same load of laundry like 5-6 time before I actually put it away. I have a weakness for chocolate that would secure my hotmessness status all on its own (note the chocolate drizzle atop the already chocolatey cocoa pictured above), but I digress. On the flip side, I work hard to balance my mess by managing where I can, and a reusable cup, I can do that!

As my friend and fellow mom enthusiast, Domari put it, “The Starbucks marketing team is freaking brilliant! Has anyone actually SEEN someone complaining about the cup? Or just people complaining about people complaining about the cup? #Genius”

No matter where you fall on the approval spectrum of  the “red cup design”, I say skip the cup all together! They may be made FROM recycled material (which is better than nothing) but they still end up in the landfill. For an extra $2 you can grab a reusable cup and give yourself a little bit of a challenge, in order to get your Starbucks fix you have to have your cup with you; but I won’t tell if you cheat and just buy another cup 😉 Reduce*Reuse*Recycle
