    Musicpan,

    I'm glad the Green Strip cold cups are working out for you. Did you experiment with them before you decided to use them full time? I probably would have taken one and given it a blast with a hair dryer just to see what would happen.

    I remember Shrinky Dinks .... and after doing a Google search a few minutes ago, I discovered that they still sell them.

    Actually those "biodegrage" corn plastic cups don't biodegrage. They can only be composted at a facility. They also are worse than normal #5 plastic, which can be recycled. The Starbucks straws and cold cups are PLA (aka corn plastic), are only compostable but only 1% if them are properly composted. Ugh...I hate when companies pretend to be eco friendly to make money when they truly are not.

    People are the most selfish specie in this planet. I highly doubt that people will drop anything for higher causes.
    whatever horrible things happened in the past and present, mostly it is due to one of our hideous characters.

    well.... in many cases, a silent fart is way worse than a loud one. certainly applies to Guatemala coffee monopoly game that big boys play in that country.

    Well, that's a hard one and it's been already mentioned, that some bio-degradable options are not that eco-friendly.
    We have a coffee to-go business, and yes, we are looking for a proper solution, though it's still very problematic. So we decided to give a small discounts for our customers who brings their own mugs.
    Personally, I have tried many, and recently got hooked on these bamboo cups.
