Didn't I just do a post about not eating McDonald's because they wouldn't let me use my reusable to-go coffee cup? Yet today, I still had this mocha in this non-reusable, disposable, plastic to-go cup. Kermit was right, it's not easy being green. *dramatic sigh*
Today I went to one of my favorite coffee places -- one that's happy to let you use your own reusable cup (I said I'd give up McDonald's, not mochas). I had gotten ready for work, took the detour, and went into the store. Only to realize....I'd forgotten my reusable cup at home! Just great. I figured driving back home to get the cup, and then all the way back to the store wouldn't be too green either (not to mention I didn't really have time), so I went ahead and got the mocha in a disposable cup. Maybe a girl greener than me would have forgone the delicious drink, but that would just make all the carbon I burned to get there pointless, right? ;)
Luckily my work has recycling bins, so it wasn't a total eco-saster.
