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.

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

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