LoganCircle Posted July 25, 2006 Share Posted July 25, 2006 At coffee shops, quick-prep, takeout, and fast-food restaurants, do you: Take a handful of napkins instead of the number you actually need? Order your food to go and then eat it in the restaurant? Use disposable cups, plates, and cutlery instead of readily available reusable options? (Like when you're reading the paper at Starbucks on Saturday morning?) Ask for cardboard beverage carriers when you only have two drinks? Use an insulated paper coffee sleeve when your coffee's not really that hot? Not recycle when there are clearly marked recycling containers fifteen feet away? I see people doing these things all of the time and it drives me nuts! I know there are motivational, educational, and attitudinal barriers to addressing the larger issue of resource overconsumption, but there's no reason to be needlessly wasteful. I guess I get my panties in a wad too easily.. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
