It’s zero-waste Slurpee time again! On Mother’s Day the whole family walked to our neighborhood Chevron for a Frozen Cold treat. We came prepared with our own cups and a Rubbermaid container for a Bread Garden treat for me. My cup was completely waste free because I have a permanent straw but we did end up with 3 disposable straws. One got lost in my oldest son’s drink before we left so he needed a second. The toddler doesn’t drink pop so he didn’t have one. He did have some milk when we got home. I got a scone because I wanted one. What? Do I need a reason? It was delicious. We didn’t ask permission. We just filled up. At the till the cashier charged us for refills and the whole works cost just over $5. Another reason to bring your own cup for drinks!
I plan to buy two permanent straws from Starbucks for the other cups.
Also, I might buy a few smaller Starbucks cold cups for the kids and a domed lid for mine. The straws don’t fall out and it might help them to stay hydrated this summer.Okay, I know they are plastic but I will wash them by hand and they are BPA free.
They are boys and they drop things. A lot.
