Happy Earth Day!

Posted on April 22, 2009 in More Fun by | 1 comment

In light of it being Earth Day we thought we’d share a conservation tid-bit I was recently made aware of. Did you know it takes over 50 GALLONS OF WATER to make 1 LATTE????? Stats show that over 50% of 18+ year olds in America drink coffee. And they average 2.6 cups A DAY! Sadly there is no such thing as locally grown coffee (unless you are from Hawaii) and the energy used to transport it from South America or  out in The Pacific Ocean is immense. Not only that but water is used in almost every element of your morning Starbucks run. From the cups and lids to the sugar, milk and beans themselves- it’s amazing to see how something so small has such a big price tag.
