Hitting the Starbucks Chord: A Bloggers Dream

I believe it is EVERY bloggers dream to write a blog and see the comments start rolling in.  It affirms you (at least I am hoping it will when it happens to me!) I am thrilled when one person takes the time to read my blog AND takes the time to comment. Well, I read one such blog recently & have been amazed not only by the quantity of the responses but by the QUALITY of the responses.  It so good, I feel compelled to share.

The blog, written by Miranda Farley,  is about the new reusable Starbucks cup that you can purchase for a $1. The blog is excellent in every way – engaging, fun, informative and thought-provoking. Ms. Farley begs the question: is the cup green or is the effort greenwashing?  The responses to the blog are equally engaging.  I cannot believe all the work people did to write contemplative, insightful and content rich responses.   In other words – Miranda hit a chord and my hats off to her on many many levels. The cup in question….

Want to read it for yourself?  I hope so. Here is the link: Starbucks Recycable Plastic Cup: Green of Greenwash?

As for Mrs. Green?  I shall continue to keep writing from my heart about things that matter to me & sharing other great blogs when I find them.  I like being the big green dot connector. It sustains me and hopefully helps us all with living green.

  1. Mrs. Green,
    Thanks so much for noticing — and giving us a shout out!
    this post is every editor-in-chief’s dream too! It demonstrates what we are trying to accomplish with WeHateToWaste.com — some thoughtful conversation about how to reduce waste — and we think that starts with the heart, and as you can see from the quality of the posts, seems to end with the head!
    All the best,
    “Junky” Jacquie Ottman

  2. Hi Mrs. Green,

    Thank you so much for writing about my blog post! I am also thrilled that other people want to talk about this cup as much as I do. As a fellow blogger, it is our dream to spark conversation and that doesn’t always happen so easily. So, thank you for your kind post and I hope to see some more discussion occurring!

      Miranda – I meant what I said. You have sparked an important conversation & are asking people to think – not telling them what to think! And they are AND sharing their thoughts. Touche!
