Hello Saluki Green Action Team!  

There are so many new ways to make this semester sustainable and cost-effective. Forming new habits can help us become more sustainable ansave money. 

Did You Know: Over a billion cups of hot beverages are purchased in the world each day? That's a lot of waste! (Source: https://lib.dr.iastate.edu/etd/14847/) 

Take Action Now! It is more cost effective to use reusable cups, so you aren't directly or indirectly adding the price of a disposable cup to the cost of the drink itself. And, you'll be keeping disposable cups from ending up in the landfill. If you feel that the price of a fancy reusable cup is too high, never fear! You can use everyday glass canning jars to hold your drinks as well! 

 Samantha, one of our Sustainability Fellows, enjoys her coffee using her reusable coffee cup!
