To be clear up front, I am not a fan or supporter of Starbucks. But on a roadtrip in California, they crop up at every exit and provide a reliable place to use the restroom and get a shot of caffeine to keep motoring. And so when I found my SIGG bottle empty and being in need of water, I decided to take my bottle in and ask if they could refill it, hoping they would have filtered water. To my surprise, the barrista (despite being harried with a line of customers), cheerfully refilled my bottle with the filtered water from a dispenser behind the counter! I had never thought to ask before. It just goes to show that making a little effort can help us all Rise Above Plastics!
