Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!

You...can make a difference!

Just say "no" to cardboard cuffs for your hot tea or coffee cup! Switch over to an "eco-friendly" knitted cuff and you'll never go back to cardboard again!

Last week I took a fun "Coffee Cuff" class at Knitique. The pattern is called Coffee Cuff Six Ways on Ravelry by Nicole Mattson. My cuff is knit in JoJoland Rhythm, a worsted wool yarn, in color M61. It was knit on #8 DPN's.

I think a knit cuff makes a great present. My cuff is for my sister along with a Starbucks gift card. I decided to test her cuff out yesterday on my own Venti Latte. It passed the test with flying colors. All the Starbucks employees were raving about it and I was amazed at how it kept my coffee hot much longer. It is a great insulator!

Make the Eco-Friendly choice!

So drink your tea or coffee in style now with an eco-friendly hand-knit cuff. Wouldn't it be great to knit these up in pretty colors to match your wardrobe! Think of all the possibilities! Best of all, what a great way to use up leftover yarn, too..saving it from the landfill!

Kudos to Starbucks for caring about our planet, too. You can read more about what Starbucks commitment to the environment at Starbucks, Shared Planet.
