Simple Saturday/Sunday - Bring a mug!
Have you ever taken your own mug to the coffee shop? We usually do. I know at the shop where Mr. Chewy works part-time, they will make any drink for your mug (not just straight brewed coffee). Whether it's your local "Caricoffeebucks" or the corner gas station, using your own mug makes sense. If you have a good travel mug it works better in addition to not creating more waste. Many places will give you a small discount if you use your own mug as well. Although when people say "It's not enough of a discount to be worth it" I always wonder, "Really? What about the cost of the extra waste?" Not to mention, anything to keep the shop's expenses down saves me more money in the long run.
