PSA: FREE coffee at Starbucks 4/22

Free coffee if you bring in your own mug. Today only.

Hi! I wanted to tell you about an exciting event coming up on Earth Day. On April 22 weíre inviting everyone to bring in a reusable mug or tumbler and get a free brewed coffee or tea. Your choice of brew, hot or iced Ė it is spring after all! This is happening at participating stores in the United States and Canada.

Why are we doing this? We recognize the impact one can make through careful, conscious choices. So we want to encourage and reward those of you who use tumblers or travel mugs in your daily routines. Youíre helping to reduce our environmental impact!

If you donít have a tumbler or travel mug, they will be available for 20% off on Earth Day, April 22. Just so you know, anytime you bring in your own tumbler or travel mug to a participating Starbucks, you get 10 cents off your drink every day.

What if you canít bring in a mug and donít want to buy a new one? Thatís okay too. Just request your coffee or tea in one of our ďfor-hereĒ cups and weíll pick up the tab.

Last year, when we did a similar promotion on Earth Day, more than 1.2 million of you participated. Letís see if we can beat that this year! RSVP here.

Although reusable serveware and tumbler use still only accounts for a small percentage of total beverages served, those of you who did bring in reusable mugs still made a significant impact. In 2010, people brought their own tumblers into our stores more than 32 million times, keeping nearly 1.45 million pounds of paper out of landfills.

Life has no instruction manual. Parts and labor can be impossible to find. Many go down the road with parts that are in need of service. A breakdown is eventual.

Thanks Mr. Pink....throw in a buck ya cheap bas'tad

Look, I can appreciate this. I was young too, I felt just like you. Hated authority, hated all my bosses, thought they were full of shit. Look, it's like they say, if you're not a rebel by the age of 20, you got no heart, but if you haven't turned establishment by 30, you've got no brains. Because there are no story-book romances, no fairy-tale endings. So before you run out and change the world, ask yourself, "What do you really want?"
