Do you enjoy Starbucks chilled beverages, but hate the waste that comes from so many disposable plastic cups? Do you also want to keep your friends and co-workers from knowing about your secret environmentalist tendencies? Maybe you should consider purchasing the reusable Starbucks cold cup, a sturdy plastic tumbler made to look just like its flimsier, single-use cousins.
The cups are extremely, inexplicably popular. The holiday edition, featuring a candy cane-striped straw, has already sold out online, can barely stay on the shelves in Starbucks stores, and sells for a significant markup on eBay.
(Of course, if you’re looking for a way to reuse your disposable coffee cups, you could always attach them to your car roof.)
