Happy Earth Day everyone! Each year this day reminds us to re-think our daily living habits and see if there is a way to live life just a little greener. It is important to think about ways to help reduce our carbon footprint. A carbon footprint as defined by CarbonFootprint.com is a measure of the impact our activities have on the environment, and in particular climate change. It relates to the amount of greenhouse gases produced in our day-to-day lives through burning fossil fuels for electricity, heating and transportation etc. There are two parts to the your carbon footprint, your primary use of CO2 emissions that you have direct control over and then your secondary footprint which is a measure of the indirect CO2 emissions from the whole lifecycle of products we use. To learn more about carbon footprints and and estimation of what your own carbon footprint may be you can visit CarbonFootprint.com.
There are so many simple ways that we can reduce our carbon footprint. How many of you drink coffee from your favorite coffee shops and stands on a regular basis? We all know that those paper coffee cups can be super hot to hold thus the invention of the paper coffee/tea jacket. If you think about how many of those each day get used and then tossed in the garbage right along with your empty Starbucks cup, that alone makes a huge impact on the planet. Something so small, when used and tossed away by millions of people each day can affect the environment in ways that some of us can't even possibly imagine.
Don't get me wrong, I think that those jackets are a smart invention because I for one can't stand to hold a steaming hot cup, in my dainty little hands. This is where the earth friendly coffee/tea cozy made of fabric comes to the rescue, like those found at Lorijoz Unique Gifts.
Lorijoz Unique Gifts creates handmade Coffee or Tea Cozies that are designed to fit perfectly around Starbucks coffee cups. Imagine how you can reduce your own carbon footprint by replacing those boring, paper jackets with a stylish and chic fabric cozy! Below are a few of my favorite designs that are available:
These beautiful and stylish coffee cozys will have you looking smart, chic and most of all environmentally aware. I love the addition of the button for decoration, however, if you prefer, the cozy can most certainly be made without it. There are thirteen different fabric styles to choose from and all of them are fun and flirty. A coffee cozy would make a great Mother's Day gift too! You could adorn a cozy around an empty Starbucks cup and place some tissue with a Starbucks gift card inside! For added detail you could also include a matching wristlet key fob also available at Lorijoz Unique Gifts.
You can purchase a Coffee or Tea Cozy from Lorijoz Unique Gifts for only $8.99. Don't forget about the matching wristlet key fob for only $5.99!
