While I was at the store, I noticed that the POM Tea comes in a really cool jar. Ok, I know it would be much greener to reuse a jar I was going to recycle instead of buying a new jar of tea just to use the container. I never claimed to be perfect. So I bought two jars. One for me and one for my husband. If I was going to splurge, someone else might as well enjoy it with me, right? Plus, I wanted to butter him up so he did not think I was totally crazy. (probably too late for that though). BTW, the tea is really yummy. I considered it a win win situation. I got a new coffee cup and a nice treat.
You may now be asking who is Dori & Val? Well, they host a podcast called More Hip than Hippie. I have been listening to their podcast for several months now and look forward to it every week. They drink beer and eat chocolate during each show even when they tape in the morning and provide tons of great information. Especially to people like me, who are trying to figure out all this going green business. They have a teenie weenie greenie each week. In this episode, they suggest reusing a section of an old sweater sleeve as a coffee cozy. You will notice in the photo below that I am listening to their podcast on the way to work.I really had intentions to do this to use with my new coffee cup, but just have not gotten around to it. So I had to improvise. Instead, I used one of my daughter's Baby Legs (leg warmers for babies and kids) as a cozy. It worked perfectly. Thanks No Impact Man and Dori & Val. My morning coffee is now complete. Doesn't it look so cute?
