Pretty, aren’t they? But I didn’t buy these disposable paper cups for their looks.
We’re waterless again. In a week, the subdivision will cut off the deep well water supply and Manila Water will be our water supplier. The problem is that when Manila Water was laying out the pipes, their people thought that the row of six houses just outside the subdivision gate were not part of the subdivision. Duh, the six model houses not being part of the subdivision. How very funny. I don’t know where to throw the grenade — at the Manila Water office or the office of the subdivision developer. :roll:
Anyway, back to the paper cups. I was waiting for the coffee to cool a bit and wondered… See, I chose paper cups because I didn’t want to buy plastic or styrofoam. But then, how many trees are cut down every year to supply us with disposable paper cups (and toilet paper and kitchen paper towels)? We may not be adding to the pollution by not using plastic cups but how much are we contributing to forest denudation?
There are no easy answers when it comes to saving the environment, is there?
