I created this pearl to capture links that reflect my own interested. I made my first cup cuff in 2008 and have used the one I always carry in places as far flung as London, Seattle, Washington, Philadelphia, San Diego, Birmingham and coffee and tea houses in between! Feb 2

Dump the disposable sleeve. Photo via flickr by Mykl Roventine Yeah, its best to bring your own ceramic mug with a handle to the cafÃ© to fill your cup with coffee or tea , but when it's left at home and you're in line waiting for your fair trade organic soy latte, at least BYOC (bring your own cozy) instead of using a cardboard sleeve, even if it is recycled. Here's how to remember: just skip the disposable one and see if your burning fingers don't remind you next time.
If you ever feel a pang of guilt over those extra pieces of cardboard you pick up at the cafe, don’t despair: this hot drink cozy from Heidi Kenney ’s " Every Day’s a Holiday " will keep you chic and green. You might not guess it from this coffee cup sleeve pattern, but " Every Day’s a Holiday " is about ways to celebrate every major holiday (plus a few you’ve probably never heard of) by crafting with kids. This particular cozy is in honor of Father’s Day.

Just in time for Earth Day you can make your own reusable fabric coffee cup sleeves (See video tutorial below). It’s not always easy to carry your own mug with you everywhere you go, but you can easily slip a fabric coffee cup sleeve into your purse or onto your wrist. Did you know that a coffee drinker can save up to 10 pounds of paper a year just by using a reusable sleeve? That makes your fabric coffee cup sleeve stylish and green! I like this project because it’s great for using up leftover fabric scraps and stray jewelry charms. It’s also quick and easy because you use fast2fuse fusible interfacing (available from C&T Publishing ).
Reusable coffee cup sleeves are the new fad. To save on disposable cardboard cup sleeves, many eco-conscious people are investing in cute, stylish reusable coffee cup sleeves. A few months ago, I saw patterns and instructions for one of these by Tammy on Cut out and Keep .
Cut down on paper waste and look cool while drinking coffee with a reusable coffee cup sleeve! It’s never fun to grab a hot cup of coffee with your bare hands. That’s just an accident waiting to happen (and a lot of profane words waiting to escape your mouth). So when I’m in a rush and I need to buy a quick cup of coffee at a gas station or a coffee shop I always grab a paper coffee sleeve. These sleeves usually come with my purchase, and they wind up getting recycled with the other paper products.
