food zero waste

put down that styrofoam cup

Are you guilty of sashaying over to the break room each morning and filling up a big paper cup of coffee? Or worse – !!! – styrofoam? Each paper cup that’s tossed after a single use is the product of water, electricity, and trees.

Why not bring in a mug you love? You’ll not only avoid all that waste, but you can bring a little personality to the mundane cubicle environment.

I’m always wary of clutter, but I make an exception to have a little collection of pretty mugs for every occasion. Scroll down for a round-up of 10 mugs I’m coveting right now.

1. Eat Cake For Breakfast // Kate Spade, $20



The mug says it all.

2. Monogram Vine Mug // Terrain, $14



Will spring for anything monogrammed.

3. Tinware Mug // Canvas Home, $12


I love how this one mimics vintage metalware. It’s glazed stoneware, so no worries about microwave use 😉

4. Flowers, Birds, and Berries Mug // Three Wheel Studio, $48


Something about these cute little birds just makes me smile. The 18 oz size doesn’t hurt, either – moar coffee plz.

5. Carpe Diem // Etsy, $18


For a little extra kick of motivation in the morning.

6. Forbury Tea Cup & Saucer // Anthropologie, $24


Classy. Plus, a saucer is genius – no more coffee rings on my desk, and no more early-morning spills.

7. Constellations Enamel Mug // Leif Shop, $14



So simple, yet so cute. Channel your inner Katniss.

8. Carnaby Full Deck Mug // Jonathan Adler, $18



Is there anyone immune to Jonathan Adler’s bright colors and cheerful patterns?

9. Eat Well, Travel Often // Society6, $15




10. Luau Girls // Society6, $15



A little extra reminder of that tropical vacation you booked a few weeks ago.
