It's good that they're doing something, but no good crowing about the straws without dealing with what's a greater volume of stuff that can't be recycled.

I hope other companies will also join in.



I belong to a women's group and we meet weekly. I bring my own cup.

Dear Angie,

I really adore the idea of bringing your own cup. That is a great way to reduce waste, I am hoping the United States can enact something of this nature with the fees or money collected to go to recycling or cleaning our oceans!

Have an awesome evening.

When we were kids, there was a dposit on soda bottles. We would clean up the neighborhood and turn them into the store and collect our reward. I do not buy bottled water; use plastic bags unless I have to. I do reuse plastic straws at home. I recycle more than I throw out.

My friend found a really nice tea house. The owner has it decorated beautifully with tea pots, cups, small lights. The day we were there she served a lavender tea, tea sandwiches, desserts, a wedge salad, and then a blackberry cobbler. The tables all ha real linen table cloths. We were a group of four, and another table of six came in just before the bus load of ladies came in. She had it all well organized.

I hope this gets posted tonight. I'm having a problem accessing the forums.

Dear Angie,

Our family does recycle more than we throw out, we also try very hard not to use plastic lunch bags too! The baggers in the regular store where I buy groceries are put off when I bring in recycle bags, as it takes them longer to bag the items. Also for some reason, they tend to overfill the recycled bags making then very heavy! Do you find this too?

I still love that bring your own mug or tea cup how cool!

Dear Angie,

Sorry, I have been slightly inactive here for a bit. But anyway, this little tea house sounds absolutely heavenly! I love the menu and the decor sounds beautiful. Thanks for letting me hear about this place!

It's ok if you name it so we can give it a bit of an advertisement.
Have a great day.

Bacardi Fireside Tea

10 oz mug
1tsp. sugar
1 1/2 oz Bacardi rum silver or amber rum
1 cup very hot black tea

Enjoy!
Happy Holidays!
