A few months back, I purchased myself a Keep Cup.
My main reasons for doing so were:
- I really liked the colours (pink and green)
- I had a job and thought it might be nice to have one
- I’ve wanted one for no real fathomable reason
Of course, there are other benefits to owning a resuable cup, including, but not limited to:
- Some cafes will give you a discount on your coffee if you use a resuable cup
- There is less waste and rubbish and it significantly reduces the collection of take away coffee cups on your desk and in your car
- They are environmentally friendly, so you look like you’re doing your ‘bit’ for the earth
These are all lovely reasons to purchase a Keep Cup or some other brand of resuable cup. If you’re lucky enough to get the discounted coffee, or are conscious of the environment and waste, you’ll make back the dollars you spend on it in no time.
There is, however, only really one reason to own one of these cups.
It is a very good reason, and the only reasonable reason.
Keep Cups – or, at least my lovely pink and green Keep Cup – means I can stagger down to my favourite barista, shove my cup in his face, grunt at him, and moments later he presents me with a smile and a strong skinny latte.
And that, my friends, is the only reason to own one.
