7-Eleven Strikes Again


You know how I love the 7-Eleven reusable Slurpee straws right? I love them even more since I read that McDonald's alone distributes 52 million meals a day. That's over 52 million plastic straws people! For just one chain!!! Yikes! Ok, so love the reusable straw idea. And I know you don't all have the bliss that is 7-Eleven. So I found you a brilliant reference where you can find your choice of the reusable. Unfortunately, you won't find it for .99 cents, but we know the Earth is worth the investment.

But I digress a little. What I wanted to tell you about from this weekend was how I have fallen in love with 7-Eleven all over again. Because I try to drink all the Slurpee I can get on the other side of my state visits, I decided to just reuse my cup (ok, this time I have to admit it was my husband's brilliant idea) and not only did the Mama E benefit, but I did too! Little did I know that 7-Eleven, like my friendly neighborhood gas station, offers a discount when you reuse your cup! Moral of the story? Take your cup and at least ask. Chances are if I have already found 2 places to reuse, you have one by you too. Has anyone found one yet? How much do you get to save per trip?

YAY! For ten years now I have been trying to get someone to buy a Tiffany Monkey Straw for me as a gift (birthday, xmas, valentine's day), but no one ever has . . . primarily because of the price tag. I was even willing to make a carrying case for it! Anyhoo, I like these alternatives, with the glass and stainless steel straws being my faves. Many thanks for this!

What a great idea for them to offer discount when you reuse your cup! x
