There is a big debate about plastic straws vs. a thicker plastic lid... but how about no lid at all? If you do find yourself ordering coffee on the go in a plastic cup... just say no to the lid. At Peet’s coffee they had the costumer lid their own cup which made it very easy for me to not get one! Yay! Because did I need a lid to sip my coffee at the coffee shop? NOPE! .
