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.

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!

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!
