It’s estimated that 1 million disposable coffee cups every minute end up in our landfill! One million, that’s outrageous!
So do something simple for the planet by taking with you a reusable refillable coffee cup in the car.
How about this idea…When you are at a coffee shop ask for your coffee in a china mug, and sit down enjoy and savour the experience instead of rushing off with a take away in your hand.
Some coffee shops will even keep a special mug just for you, with your name on it. What about convincing your local cafe to do the same.
Thanks my challenge to you today is to ditch the single use coffee cups and help reduce our landfill plight. Are you up to the challenge?
See you tomorrow.

It seems like forever since I wrote a full blog post, in fact since I wrote anything.
“Where have you been?” I hear you ask.
Well I have had the most wonderful whirlwind experience of learning, connecting, inspiring, communicating with a bunch of lovely like minded people all around the world!
I have just successfully lead the first Farewell My Manicure 21 Day Eco Challenge, taking a group of remarkable people through 21 different simple suburban sustainability tips, one a day, for three weeks, because, word is, it takes twenty one days to form a habit.
I personally have gone from the mindset of complacency to the mindset of Eco Everyday, so much so that I have created a Facebook group www.facebook.com/groups/ecoeveryday if you would like to join the conversation, stay up to date on eco friendly products and services, and if you want join the next 21 Day Eco Challenge commencing on July 1st for your chance to win weekly prizes and help leave a lighter footprint on this world we all call home.
If you are already living an eco friendly life then WE have things to learn from YOU! If you are willing to share what you know and what you do, if you have an environmentally friendly business you want to promote, a product you would like some feedback on, or want to hear from people who do, then I invite you to join the group.
Also, I’ve been preparing for my upcoming webTV show, due to launch in September! It’s all very exciting at Farewell My Manicure headquarters. If you would like to be updated as things happen hit the big green button and I’ll stay in touch.
Until next time.
