Wow. Humans are just where we need them to be — And so smart!
Geothermal Apartment Complex — wow.
The good cup— wow.
I never have coffee to go. It’s just not something I do. The coffee I drink is always in a mug. Be it at home or at coffee shops. Therefore I’ve never seen those cups you talk about here. But now that I know I’ll be on the look out. This is stellar. I love this. Thanks for sharing this bit of good news. Love it all. Xoxo

You’re welcome! I don’t usually get coffee to go, but it seems a lot of people do. Some places use sturdy paper cups, but there’s still plenty of styrofoam being used in the US. It’s gross. Thank you for going with the mugs and for supporting the good news!
