Your To-Go Cups Are Killing The Planet. Use These Instead.
As part of HuffPost’s “Reclaim” project, HuffPost Taste will focus the entire month of July on simple styles you can reduce food waste in your own home.

And then there’s the problem with styrofoam: 25 billion styrofoam coffee cups are hurled out annually. So much trash. There’s a simple solution to fighting this waste and it now comes in many stylish options. We’re talking about the travel mug, folks.
Travel mugs might be a pain to remember and to lug around but when they’re as intelligently designed as the ones below, they’re easy to employ. Check them out and start bringing your own cup to the coffee shop.
