In closing I want to thank each and every one of you for taking time out of your day to read through this newsletter and send in your kind words. I read each and every one and it means the world to me. I wanted to also take a moment to respond to your questions & concerns. Last month Dominik wrote in to me about his concerns about my coffee consumption and disposable coffee cups:
Please help our planet and try not to use disposable coffee cups. They seem easy to recycle but in fact they are one of the largest pollutants. Even if they’re getting recycled, it gets expensive due to plastic polyethylene, which is tightly bonded to the paper making the cups hard to recycle.
I wanted to let everyone know how I try to be as green as possible with my mass coffee consumption. First, I make my coffee every day at home and carry it into the office with my Zojirushi
mug to keep it warm, and pour it into a re-usable porcelain mug at the office. If I happen to get a disposable cup at the Microsoft offices they are fully compostable and I ensure that I do so. If I am out and about I always try to get my coffee to stay and drink it at the coffee shop. When that is not the case I always I ensure I recycle or compost where I can. One extra step that I will be taking after reading this is to also compost my coffee grounds at home. I am always open to more suggestions so please let me know! <3 If you still want to buy me a coffee I would love it!
