The Family Hat: Weekends at Starbucks

Kelsey, Nanni and I like to spend Saturday mornings at Starbucks. As we make our way to the back of the coffee-house, we always seem to find the same set of brown chairs to sit at. Nanni and I plan out our weekend while Kelsey plays with one of the chairs. It isn’t too long before Nanni scoops up Kelsey bug into her arms and gets all of her giggles out.

The Eco-Friendly Hat: Starbucks

Make a Difference day is October 23, 2010. What will you be doing? I was inspired by this day to start making a difference every day. I thought, what do I do every day? Drink coffee! So, I purchased this Reusable Starbucks Cup Sleeve for my drinks. Instead of the paper sleeves they give me, I’m going to start using this cool wool sweater-looking thing to wrap around my lattes. The cost was $4.32 (the price of one Venti Skinny Vanilla Latte). The slight downside? The cup doesn’t fit as well in my car cup holder, but that’s a small price to pay for making a great change.

Coffee lovers – you can go one step further and drink from a reusable travel mug. If you bring one into Starbucks, you’ll get a ten-cent discount on any beverage. Calculate the impact and make a pledge today!
