Big business can make a difference and should make changes for a better world.

I think all companies have an obligation to strive to make our world safer and better. What's even better is to take along your own mug.

A step in the right direction is always welcome.

Only trouble is, we have a very long way to go.

OR perhaps the more addicted customers could bring their OWN mug like I do???

Just saying...

I'm not clear how they intend to collect these containers. Most people taking coffee out will probably just chuck them in a waste bin. Still, it's good that they're at least trying, given their poor reputation in certain fields.
