She {hearts} Repurpose Compostables Disposable Coffee Cups

I’ll be honest. 

I’m not a super green person.

I mean, I want to be.  But for a number of reasons, the main one being that I’m super busy and forget things easily, I don’t participate in as many green and green type activities as I should.

I use reusable bags.  I scream down my kids to turn off the lights.  And I’ve started buying those insanely ridiculous light bulbs from Ikea.

You know, the ones that cost more than most of the lamps?

I’ve been trying to find easier and more cost effective ways to make my life and my house and my family greener.

Things that people with for for real, busy lives can do that won’t break the bank or make them hate green living.

Things like, um, screaming down my kids to turn off the lights.

And using that huge recycling bin the sanitation people dropped off at my house.

Lately, I’ve taken it a step further by taking my caffeinated beverages in these really cool repurposed cups.

Interestingly enough, the company is called Repurpose Compostables and the cups they make are made from 100% renewable resources, lined with plant material, AND are compostable within 90 days!

Talk about lowering your carbon footprint!

To save money, I gave up buying coffee outside of the house (unless I’m on vacation) and I’ve taken to hauling around my own which makes these cups perfect!  I don’t have to worry about losing them (like I always did with my other cups) and, when I do find myself having to buy a cup (because of a meeting or something) I just take this into my local cafe and ask them to put my drink inside!

Another cool tidbit?

Tons of celebrities are using these too!

They’ve been endorsed by Sheryl Crow, Maroon 5, and the Dave Mathews Band.  Plus, they’ve even been getting some buzz in magazine pages like Us Weekly!

I love going green especially when it’s this easy and cool!
