I have to give it to Starbucks for actually making me buy something. Especially for a non-drink item that has infused it's way into my life as quickly as possible. This 'twisted metal' tumbler can be found in Stainless Steel or White ... depending on the store.... but I <3 my exposed metal version! If Iorn Man's Suit (Mark 2) had a cup holder...this would be Tony's must have item too! For 20 bucks this cup carries 16 fl oz of delight (That's a Grande for you no-buckers).
So, unbeknownst to me, I kind of subconsciously helped reduce garbage by really liking a well designed and head-turning tumbler. (Really, I got stopped in a Trader Joe's parking lot and questioned for 10 mins ...[not by police]...but a happy couple who thought I designed it. They were surprised that it was from Starbucks too.
This got me thinking that I should create more sustainable design for my clients and try to do my best to reduce my own personal carbon footprint. (I know smugish right?) I have heard of it but didn't know exactly where to start. In the past, I have tried to make a compost heap... but that got really messy.
So, thank you Starbucks for helping me change my habit! Having my Twisted Sippy Cup, TSC for short, at my side at all times has been nothing but beneficial. Not only to my skin but also to help regulate my body temp and keep cool during these hot times in SoCal! I mean I do live in a desert, but who could tell, right???
Speaking of illusions, no one can tell what I am drinking. So, filler up Starbucks with your finest ice water as I sit inconspicuously at the bar, while recieving compliments from fellow patrons. I guess this is what a trend setter feels like :? I like it...I think... I wish I was getting paid from Starbucks for all this free promo. But...it's all for a good cause..right? From this day forward I am doing my best to put good habits into my life. Oprah says it takes about two weeks for an action to become a habit. Using a Tumbler instead of a new plastic cup every time I visit Starbucks is now infused into my brain and would take surgical precision to remove it. #SortOfATrendsetter
P.S> I forgot to mention that they also sell different straws... I have a glittery one as seen below.
