just posting this here as proof as I sent it to starbucks and if they use it I want my credit dammit!!!

Reusable Java Jackets

my idea is to reduce the amount of java jackets that are thrown away...while it is nice to think of reusing them (the cardboard ones), people get weirded out...

and while not everyone carry's reusable cups because they are messy and have to be cleaned and so on, there is an AWESOME and very happy medium starbucks can use!

sell reusable java jackets!!!

they can me made of fabric, be washable, made with organic and sustainable fabrics (hemp, bamboo, cotton, you get the idea), and sold int he shops, maybe fair trade, or made in the USA (we forget about this lil ole country of ours).

this way, people can carry a smell thing that lets them at least help the environment a little bit more then just using the paper ones, while also making life a little easier by not having to carry a bulky cup all day as you run around (wish I could, but frankly sometimes it is just not possible).

This can be easily stored in a pocket and used when needed!

Since I don't drink coffee, I have never even been into a Starbucks. So my question - what is a java jacket?

A few months ago, I was in a Dunkin' Donuts in NJ and saw these cute little coffee jackets. They aren't made of eco-friendly fabric, but they are reusable. I bought one, and have been happy with it. I'm sure that an enterprising crafter could make a much cuter, earth-friendlier version...

We agree 100%!! We make our own and take them to every coffee shop we go to. They are always surprised when we pull them out of our pockets LOL
