You know what really grinds my gears…
I am sure I am not the only one who has a friendly reminder in their office kitchen “Hey bring in your own coffee mug / water bottle and help save the planet.” You would think that in an office with such a sign in the kitchen they would NOT throw out a water bottle on a desk that was strategically left next to a container of almonds. Sitting happy and waiting for my to return in the morning. But alas my almonds were jamming solo this morning : (
Whats ironic is last week I was nervous that this type of a event might happen. So for the week I left out a napkin that said “DO NOT THROW OUT – THANKS!”. And yes I included the exclamation and everything. (I have a fear of coming of as mean on paper so I use and abuse the exclamation mark, I think it likes it though)
A blog that I follow has a great page called Bring your DAMN CUP! that I think is great. Personally I don’t drink coffee / have an addiction to Starbucks but if you do read this!! I keep a coffee mug and a water bottle at both of my offices for any tea or water I consume. So I like to think I am doing my part of being green. I’ve also stopped using plastic grocery bags and if I forget my reusable ones I’ll buy a new one or do paper and then use the paper bags as recycling containers at my apartment!
That is all. Thanks for listening. Happy Friday!
