    Hey Becky,

    Very cool idea. Did you see that beta cup competition that just ended? They had a bunch of cool stuff like this up there as well.

    (ps – the video isn’t showing up for me in Google Chrome…)

      I didn’t! Do you have a link?

      Bummer that the video isn’t showing up…I’ll see what I can find out about that!

    Am I missing something here? Are we celebrating that he is not using a bit of recyclable/biodegradable cardboard (sleeve) when he is still TAKING A TOTALLY UNNECESSARY WAXED PAPER CUP THAT CAN’T BE RECYCLED/COMPOSTED?

    Ahem. Sorry, but why can’t he take a reusable cup?

      That’s a fair point, Alex. I think that on days when you forget your cup, having a reusable sleeve stashed in your purse, car, or desk can at least mitigate some of the waste. This fellow actually does use a reusable cup most of the time, though I didn’t include that in the post. Maybe I should have! :)

      Thanks Becky for posting my reusable coffee sleeve idea. I hope this post has inspired others to become more creative in their daily lives, and to be more mindful of the impact our lives have on the earth. Right after I made the reusable coffee sleeve my wife and I started making our own coffee at home and using stainless steel insulated coffee bottles by Klean Kanteen. No more wasted coffee cups, and the coffee stays hot all day long.

    I tried this, it didn’t work out so well. It was very difficult to remove and to get on in the first place. I asked my wife to sew another one and this one was a little looser and easy to put on and take off but it just didn’t stay on and I lost it.

    As I can’t get my wife to make a third one, I’ll just keep doing what I used to; reusing the same paper sleeve for as long as I can (sometimes months before it gets dirty).

      Interesting! I wonder if lining it with some fabric scraps or felt would help with the friction issue.
