Brooklyn Green Team in partnership with GreenEdge Collaborative NYC says its not too late to join...
November 08 - January 09

This Just In! Red Horse Cafe has partnered up on the mug challenge. Stop in and see them on 6th Ave in BK for a coffee with your mug and get discounted to the next size down! Starting this week, you can sign up for there for the Bring Your Own Mug Challenge. Thanks Red Horse! Also catch us this Thursday at the Snowflake Celebration, encouraging folks to buy local in Park Slope.

For those of you who are with us - Thank You! For those of you who are not yet...
Sign Up: email brooklyngreen@gmail.com and write "I Bring My Own!" Include your first and last name and zip. Please pass on to friends and make the impact stronger.

Today, there is no way to compost or recycle the billions of disposable coffee cups used in the U.S. each year. That's because cups are lined with a petroleum-based plastic (polyethylene) to prevent leaking.

Most disposable coffee cups have a life of only 5 minutes before they are tossed in the trash. In a single week, the average coffee joint goes through 4,000 cups and plastic lids!

Every year, Americans drink more than 100 billion cups of coffee. Of those, 14.4 billion are served in disposable paper cups— enough to wrap the earth 55 times if placed end-to-end!

Sign up for the challenge and use a travel mug. Often made of stainless steel, these beauties will keep your coffee or tea hotter longer than a disposable cup.

Suggest that stores offer a discount when you bring your own. Patron stores that already offer this. If you buy coffee five days a week, and use your travel mug, you save 260 cups per year!

Thank You Lion in the Sun, EPA's WaterSense, Recycline, Camilla Boutique, Blue Marble Ice Cream, Postmark Cafe, Ozzie's, Red Horse Cafe, 3rLiving, Environmental Defense Fund, and VivaTerra!

The very crux of your writing while sounding reasonable

initially, did not settle very

well with me after some time. Someplace throughout the paragraphs you managed to make me a
believer but only for a while. I still have a
problem with your leaps in logic and you might do well to fill
in all those breaks. If you actually can
accomplish that, I could undoubtedly be amazed.

I was curious if you ever thought of changing the layout of your website?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content

so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of
text for only having one or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?

never discovered any attention-

grabbing article like yours. It is pretty value enough for me.
In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made excellent content
as you probably did, the net might

be a lot more useful than ever before.

I wanted to create you one very little observation just
to give thanks again for

all the beautiful tips

you've shown on this site. It was

certainly wonderfully open-handed of you to present publicly

precisely what a few people could

possibly have marketed for an e-book to end up making some money for

their own end, most importantly given that you might well have

tried it if you ever desired. These


likewise served as a good way to understand that most


have the identical dream really like my very own to find

out a great deal more with regard to this matter.

I'm certain there are millions of more fun opportunities in the future for
people who discover your website.

I'm doing a project about spectators and am trying to find peoples opinions and feelings from the olympics (whether watching it in beijing or on the tv).. . I searched technorati for "olympics" and there are sooo many results that are much more recent and come up first, but aren't what I'm looking for, I can't work out how to filter out ones from the games.... . Anyone know how I can do a search for blog posts tagged olympics in say the month of August..
