I popped into a local coffee shop to treat myself to a latte during lunch, and as I waited for my beverage I saw this little display above their garbage-recycle-compost bins:
More places should do this. Seriously – I see so many that have separate bins, but don’t tell consumers what goes in which bin, so they just toss things randomly into bins and completely void the whole point of separating trash in the first place. You know what I like best about that display? Only the straw is actual garbage; everything else can either be recycled or composted. Hooray!
I didn’t need to worry about that stuff, though, because I got my latte in a real cup. Isn’t it gorgeous?
