Americans throw away 25 billion styrofoam coffee cups every year, and 2.5 million plastic bottles every hour. Americans consume 400 million cups of coffee per day or equivalent to 146 billion cups of coffee per year, making the United States the leading consumer of coffee in the world. If you buy just one cup of coffee or tea in a disposable cup a day, you’ll end up creating 23 lbs of waste each year.
For the month of March, Green Sage Cafe will donate 20 cent to the Asheville GreenWorks each time you bring in your reusable cup. Green Sage Cafe's mission is: "to make nourishing food for our community using sustainable practices."
