Fantabulous Day #151 – What a Beautiful Mug You Have…….Soapbox Sunday

That’s right it hippy time.  I just wanted to jump up on my soap box to save my world.  I am very selfish that way.  Lots of people jump on their soap box to save the earth.  Not me, I only care about myself when it comes to the environment.  I don’t proclaim to be a militant hippy or a super militant vegan that wants to shove my beliefs down your throat.  I just like to share what works for me.  Those things that work for me in the world of “Life as I Live It”  just might work for you.

Sometimes you need to be told what you don’t know or should I say is I need to be told what I don’t know.  One great way to save trash from the landfill is to simply use mugs.  We humans drink a tremendous amount of warm beverages daily.  Why not have a mug and reuse it.  I know there are several coffee chains and some restaurants that will allow you to bring your own cups or mugs in to be filled.

In my office, I made the offer to wash mugs daily if everyone agreed to not use temporary ones.  You know the guys were down with that one.  I actually don’t mind washing the dishes.  It is mindless work, thus therapeutic.    Some may not see it that way, hence my offer to lend a helping hand.

No additional paper, plastic or foam in the landfill.  I have done my part.  I also think I have inadvertently save a little piece of the earth with my selfish ways.  That is allllll  right.  I can get off soap box now.  I promised myself to keep it short and sweet like myself.  Except I am not short at all.  Although I am not that tall either.  I will leave that for another time.

I am stepping slowly off the box.

Soap Box Sunday

I like that “Soap Box Sunday.”  🙂  Hope everyone is having a great weekend.

Your Green Boots Gal 🙂

  1. It’s crazy how many cups my co-workers waste! But there’s 400+ people in my office, so I can’t be as nice as you 😉

    I really like that idea, washing mugs in the office so people don’t use paper cups. Might have to steal that idea for the future =)

    • LizForADay says:

      You can even tell them that it was your idea. I promise I won’t get mad or take you to court for stealing my original idea. 🙂 You know I’m so full of them….original ideas that is. 🙂

    I echo the other comments – that’s really clever. It’s the styrofoam that gets me – it can’t be recycled, but paper and hard plastic can. GIven the amount of energy that has to go into recycling though…you’re onto a winner 🙂

    • LizForADay says:

      Unfortunately here they issue a ton of styrofoam for meals and we don’t have a choice. I hate that. So I just do my small part with the mugs for now. So get to washing mugs Kate. 🙂

I would luv, luv, to hear from you! :)
