Rethinking my old ways
I often make tea at work, as my lunch beverage. I pull my tea bag out and toss it, before returning to work at the end of the lunch break. If I was home, I'd routinely store my used tea bag near the stove, and once I had amassed 2, I'd make a cup of tea for my self. Seems wasteful to toss the work one out.
Ahah! I've been toting a small, covered, plastic Tupperware container with crackers for my daily soup. Once empty, I now just place my tea bag in there, and tote it back home. Tonight's after supper cup of tea is using 2 saved from the work break room trash tea bags.
While I continue to pay 1-2 cents/tea bag for my tea, it is also an ecological move, in addition to being a thrifty measure.
