Can sippys save the world?

18 04 2008

We went to a 4th birthday party last week and our hostess put out plastic sippy cups with the kids’ names on them instead of juice boxes. What a great idea. We took ours home and of course anything with your almost-4-year-old’s name on it immediately becomes a family treasure. We will use it many many times before it’s ultimate demise – or more likely, we’ll lose it into the black hole where all kid stuff eventually goes.

Even the kids realize that throwing away (or even recycling) a juice box is wasteful when you can just fill up a cup and drink from it.

So inspired, we bought re-usable juice boxes from the Container Store for daily lunches and family outings.

Our son loves them and we further reduce the amount of stuff leaving the house into the waste stream.
