Save a Cup for Earth Day, Get Free Coffee

Conserve. Get free coffee.

In honor of Earth Day today, you can bring your travel mug to Starbuck's and get a free cup of coffee.

On any day though, you can bring your travel mug or tumbler to Starbuck's and receive 10 cents off your purchase, or you can order your drink "for here" and drink out of a non-paper cup.

Starbuck's Earth Day article says that 1.2 million people participated last year. That's a lot of saved paper cups! And that's just one day.

What if we used our travel mugs every day?

I hadn’t been playing the mandolin very long, and was real excited. We got there checked in, tuned up and did our thing inside, a nice little building with theater seats.

After the show I went outside to cool down and there were several lean-to type structures and musicians were gathered up in small groups just a playing.

You might wonder where in Monroe County you can munch on a tasty hot dog, listen to good music and hear the sound of rushing water all at the same time.
