The brilliant Starbucks Cup Plug/Coffee Stirrer

By | May 10, 2011

Last Friday I had gotten a Tall Decaf Irish Cream Skinny Cappuccino for breakfast from Starbucks and when I received it I found the sipping hole was plugged with a plastic green thing. I took a closer look and I found the Starbucks mermaid itched on the plug.

I am not sure how new it is but to me its quite new, I’ve never seen it before. I was happy because it meant the cappuccino didn’t spill all over the place leaving me with half a cup drink. As I took out the plug I was surprised to see that it was in fact a plastic stirrer as well!

Now that’s awsome! It serves two purpose: Act as a stirrer and plugs in the drinking hole! Whomever came up with that idea deserves to be a millionaire. I wish I could come up with such simple brilliant ideas.

      I wonder why isn’t it used in Kuwait? Its brilliant! I haven’t seen it being used in the UK either… and the last time I was in the states it was 2001… it is quite perfect!

    Those green plastic things will never biodegrade and end up choking the throat of a sea turtle or bird someday. Search Pacific Garbage Patch etc. There are whole islands of little green things in the ocean, killing birds and fish all day long.

      I suppose its appalling, how these and other plastic things can endanger the environment but I suppose if you dispose of them in an appropriate matter while recycling they might find their way somewhere safe, won’t they? I sure hope so!
