I let the idea go for a while, and was actually considering paying up to $20 to get one online if I found one.
I decided to go to my local Starbucks last week just to take a look, and found them stacked on the shelf. YAY! I paid my $12.99 plus tax, and became the proud owner of an overpriced Grande Cold Cup Tumbler by Starbucks Coffee. Oh yeah......
Earlier today, as I was reading through my Yahoo news, I came across an article about 5 Scary Cancer Questions, Answered.
One of the questions asked if we should worry about dangerous chemicals in some bottles. In brief:
"Whenever possible, give plastic water bottles a pass and sip from glass or steel containers instead (I often choose a metal commuter cup);.....and avoid plastics with the code 7 on the bottom—those are more likely to contain BPA"
I happened to turn my cup over and noticed a small "7" on the bottom.
Hmmm, well, isn't that interesting.
Cancer cups are now available online at Starbucks.
