Starbucks Free Coffee Event TOMORROW!



Do you own a reusable travel mug? If you do you're in luck. Starbucks is giving away a free travel mug filled with coffee to each person tomorrow: April.15th only. All you need to do is show up. This is all in an effort to create awareness about the amount of waste that paper cups produce. I'm happy to hear this news!

Have any of you seen or heard about these? If you don't have a travel mug at present, this would be a super-chic way to tote your coffee around town, and it's pretty affordable.

DCI I Am Not a Paper Cup 10-Ounce Porcelain Travel Cup with Lid

Cool, right? They do not contain BPA and are great for anyone who wants to reduce their carbon footprint in style!


Do you think you have an idea of how many paper cups Starbucks' drinkers consume in a day? Click on this 60 second VIDEO to get the big picture. Their motto for this campaign is, "One person can save trees, together we can save forests!"



This year we celebrate Earth Day on April.22nd. I hope you'll join in by consuming one less cup.
Starbucks will give you 10 cents off of every cup of joe anyday you pop in with a travel mug too!

This global movement is taking place in locations around the world including East China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Australia, Indonesia, Korea, Malaysia, New Zealand, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Austria, Bahrain, Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Egypt, France, Germany, Greece, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Netherlands, Oman, Poland, Portugal, Qatar, Romania, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, UK, Ireland, Argentina, Bahamas, Brazil, Chile, Mexico, Peru, Puerto Rico.

You might remember just last month I posted this Starbucks Freebie for their free pastry day. I certainly hope this continues as a trend. Their specialty coffees and treats are yummy but pricey so every little big is appreciated.

For those that like the taste of an iced frappuccino but just don't see yourself forking out the cash for one anytime soon, here is a great recipe so you can get your Starbucks fix for just pennies.

Enjoy your free java!

  1. I gave up my lattes and now after this post I have NO CHOICE but to go get one. Haha! Thanks a lot ;)

    I would love it if you shared your post on the bad date blog. Your friend should share her DVD story too. Sad but funny.

  3. I always feel a little funny about showing up and saying, "hi, here for my free stuff!" That is a great thing Starbucks is doing though.

  4. Just so nobody is disappointed, I'm 99% sure that this is for a regular cup of coffee, they will probably not be doing lattes, but you can ask!

    Design girl: I will share mine shortly. :) Good to hear you've had so much willpower!

    Karen: I totally understand what you mean. Don't worry, there will be several others there for the same reason. It is what Starucks is hoping for, they want to see people come in, use their reusable mug, make the change and feel comfortable with it. You could always pop through the drive-thru. ;)

  6. Well darn, I missed the SB freebie event! I'm glad they are trying to get more people to use reusable cups! I found the coolest "eco cup" while in Paris and bought it...it is porcelain with a silicone sleeve and silicone top.
