Every morning, I buy a take away coffee and feel bad about the pollution that I help create, because I chuck out the cup afterwards. At the same time, I wonder whether buying a plastic cup would really make much of a difference in regards to my carbon foot print?
I have seen these cute cups http://www.trendspotting.com.au/2010/06/08/keep-cup-keeps-you-happy but am sure that it will take years and years for that material to decompose. Do you think I should simply go for it and buy myself a couple of plastic cups? And do you know whether it makes a big difference in regards to pollution?
