Hypocritical Paper

I drive an SUV and I find it necessary to reduce my carbon footprint whenever possible.

I recycle on a regular basis, use Green Canteens and filtered water, and take short showers.

(I know the last two are essentially water conservation, but it’s important.)

Now I got one of the those hot and cold reusable mugs from an weekend getaway and as I taking it out of the plastic bag, I saw this.

This little sliver of paper telling to me reuse the $8 mug I just bought and to reduce waste.

… Seriously, little innocuous sliver of paper? You’re the one being wasteful by making me recycle you and discard of your plastic bag. It would’ve been more environmentally friendly if you never existed in the first place, but it’s cool. You’re going to the trash where you can be turned into a t-shirt and I don’t have to put up with your judgment.

Later, hypocrite.
