Stuff we Love: Starbucks

Justin drinks a lot (and I do mean a LOT) of banana chocolate vivanos from Starbucks. But he’s also pretty green and felt bad about all the plastic cups that he was racking up. Well lo and behold, Starbucks is totally with it!! Because they just came out with this reusable plastic cup that looks like the real thing but is heavy like a glass. The lid screws on and it even comes with its own permanent green straw (although J still prefers the real straws for that). Anyway, every time you use it you get 10 cents off your drink. A whopping ten cents!!

And let’s be honest….that could really add up!

    hehe, I love my starbucks too. I have that same cup. It’s awesome. I miss you guys. Can I come visit? :)

  2. Mary Marantz

    @kenny: heck yea, you can!! just say when! we miss you too!

  3. Dennis Bullock

    That is so cool! I will have to check that out.

  4. Jennifer Mendoza

    Brilliant!! I love it! I’ve always wondered when they were going to make some efforts in this direction. Thanks for sharing!

    thanks for sharing this…I hadn’t heard and am in there a lot. I don’t get a lot of cold drinks though…I wonder if they have their own hot drink cup too with the same whooping 10 cents off!

    I should have grabbed one while I was up there. I still can’t find them here. One of the SBs I frequent promised to order some but still not there. : (

    Yes, .10 adds up fast for some of us addicts… and so do the plastic cups! It pays to be green in more ways than we can imagine!

  11. Teresa K

    Yes…there are many of use who share this same addiction. Every morning and ALWAYS before a shoot. I bet that 10 cents does add up, except I bet they don’t wash it for you… :[ Don’t get me wrong, I do recycle, but I have to weigh the drive to be green VS. my own domestic laziness….I do hate dishes! hmmmm ; p

  12. Jeanette

    Oh that is clever!

  13. Michelle

    I saw that today also.But just as I was running out, so I’ll have to grab one next time.

  14. Ray

    Starbucks is smart for creating a reusable plastic cup. Going green is great.

  15. Shari Barnes

    Oh… I have been saying they needed this all along! Soooo excited! Hubby just told me that they had them at our store this morning… I feel the need for a caramel frapp tonight!!! :)

  16. Melissa

    Really?? I had no idea!

  17. Greg Kanaan

    That’s pretty cool. Is the build quality cheap or substantial? Don’t wanna spend money on it if it’s going to fall apart after one drink.

  18. Anna

    I just got mine this week and am still completely in the honeymoon stage with it–what a BRILLIANT idea, even for when I (gasp!) make my own iced coffee at home! :)

  19. Jerome Braga

    We got our cup about 2 weeks ago… it’s FREAKING AWESOME! We did ditch the straw though, that was too weird. We use normal straws.

  20. Molly

    I bought mine a couple weeks ago and looooove it!!

  21. Feuza

    Speaking of Starbucks, when is your birthday???

  22. Bethany Murphy

    OMG! My mom got that cup last year and it disappeared from the stores before I could get one! It is back this year and we are all stocking up! Isn’t it the most fun thing ever? Everyone should have one! And yes, I realize I might be more excited than I should…

  23. Stephanie

    LOVE their hot coco and apple cider drink. Oh, also their smoothies. Oh, and…ok so the list goes on and on….t’s just good stuff anyway you look at it. :D

  24. Gray Photography - Zach & Jody

    Wow! That’s most definitely impressive! Got to love Starbucks… Is it possible to invest in Starbucks stock? Love you guys :)

  25. denise karis

    lol, I came to your blog to take my mind off of things and right away, this post cheered me up and took my mind off of the day – thanks! :P I’m a white chocolate Mocha kind of girl, decaffe Iced :)

  26. Dustin Francis

    That’s pretty much the coolest thing ever and now I’m off to get me one. The closest Starbucks is less than a mile away and is 24 hours!

  27. Liz Kausteklis

    I *heart* Starbucks too! And what a great cup that is…I’ll have to get myself one of those :)

  28. Jackie Beale
