He gets it… he really does.

Living green doesn’t mean changing your lifestyle. It means figuring out what simple, easy ways we can green the activities and hobbies we already enjoy in our lives.

Won’t you help him and the other guys of SPUR58 in the “SAVE THE EARTH — USE YOUR OWN MUG” campaign?

“Individually, one cup of coffee purchased every day in a disposable container contributes about 22.75 pounds of waste per year”, according to an article on IdealBite.com.

An article at JournalNews.com cites the Council on the Environment of New York City’s figure that the United States produces 70% of the world’s solid waste… meaning we generate a cool 246 million pounds of garbage per year.

So why not join the rockers of SPUR58 and bring your own mug with you to your favorite coffee shop? Many of them even offer a discount for those who do so, so don’t forget to ask.
