Yogurt CupPosted: May 24, 2012 Filed under: Cup, Reducing waste Leave a comment
Our cups went for a frozen yogurt outing and in the process we threw a wrench in their yogurt program. It was one of those, grab a disposable cup, self-serve yogurt, add toppings and then weight and pay places.
First stop was to let them know we’d be using our own cups, did they need to weigh them first?
Them: Huh? Well, we don’t really do that….huh….hum…I could maybe take 20% off your total order?
Me: Okay. Let’s do it.
Them: Yeah, we don’t normally do this so maybe don’t expect this in the future, okay? I’m happy to do it today because it’s just me, but I don’t know about someone else.
Me: Hmm, well, maybe you could mention it to your boss, we’d come more often if we could use our own containers.
Them: Yeah, okay.
So, we fill up, sprinkle on our toppings of choice and I’m grabbing money to pay just as my oldest reaches for a neon colored plastic disposable spoon.
Her: Huh?? (as she places disposable spoon in the yogurt)
Me: Never mind
Needless to say as we enjoyed our treats we discussed one use products and how we could use the spoons we brought from home instead of the plastic ones from the store.
All finished. We stacked our dirty cups, passed around the family napkin, then used it to wrap up our cups. Next – off to the park to burn that sugar.
