Show Notes

A quick aside about our consumption of coffee (not beer) away from the home. I keep a mug in my local coffee shop and no longer drink out of plastic cups. The plastic lining isn’t easily recycled and you’re ingesting elements of heated plastic in the process. I also don’t get a coffee to go, I feel I should sit down and take the time to relax while drinking some of the black.

TLDL?: Drink your coffee in your favourite mug or flask when out and about, consider the effects of the the normalised practise of ‘coffee-to-go’ and its harmful impact on the environment.

TIPS:

  1. Bring your own mug/flask, and get a discount to boot.

  2. Consider drinking your coffee in a coffee shop (make sure to ask for it in a mug).
