The high tide wave of disposable cups plates and flatware is one i have suffered much under since returning to the USA. In some seldom localities, and only when directly asked for, one might get a coffee in a cup that is not made out of plastic, paper or styrofoam.
Another strong wave has been the production and usage of reusable containers for hot drinks, but most of these are made partly or completely out of plastic as well.
Hence I am glad to have found an attractive alternative offered by Starbucks. It is a large cup, a ceramic tumbler with cover. Not really a utensil “to go” with, but – as we ought to know – the best coffee is the one to stay.
