Eco Cup o’ Joe: All the Caffeine, None of the Guilt

by verdemama on April 19, 2010

I want to talk to you for a minute about something very important—something that affects the wellbeing of mothers all across this great land. I’m talking about that most precious of natural resources: COFFEE. Yes, coffee—that sweet, sweet life-giving nectar of the gods.

I don’t know about you, but I couldn’t complete a sentence or put one foot in front of the other each morning without a steamy cuppa joe to jolt my ass awake. We make a big ol’ pot at home every A.M. and sip on it for a couple of hours. But thanks to baby-induced late nights and early morns, my coffee lust now extends beyond the break-of-day homebrew. Yes, now it calls to me wherever I am, and I find myself sniffing out coffee shops pretty much whenever I’m out and about.

Only, my guilt about using and tossing so many paper and plastic cups really started to drain the fun out of my afternoon caffeine fix. Until I laid my eyes upon the Eco Cup:

Nope, it’s not a paper cup. It’s actually a ceramic cup, with a silicone lid and sleeve. Sixteen ounces of sheer reusable awesomeness. I like it because from far away, it looks like a regular paper cup, but up close, people notice that it’s actually a hefty ceramic mug. It’s a great conversation starter. And it feels good to not contribute to the bazillion coffee cups piling up in the landfills. Plus, coffee just tastes better out of ceramic.

I take this with me any time I feel the caffeine jones will strike, so now I can get blazed on a Peet’s latte and no longer experience a venti-sized amount of guilt.
