Bring your own, dear hearts :)
and... not just bags!!! You know you have 317 mugs rolling around the crevasses and corners of yer dwelling. Disposable cups are most of the cost of beverages you buy anyway - be the one to start the trend!
For your bicycle:
According to Bicycle-gifts.com, "You can Replace Cup with Cateye HL-500II in for After Dark Riding."
And, of course, the cup could be used for tea for those of us with delicate sensibilities.
and stolen from teh comments:
Dennis at Battle Lake sells a great grocery tote for $14
"So the short answer to your which-is-the-lesser-of-two-evils question is that there is no clear lesser, and neither is exactly evil. Picture this scenario: You're driving down the street and your eye is caught by a plastic bag snared in a tree. "Gross!" you think, "Some jerk has been littering again! Those plastic bags are a wasteful, American consumerist eyesore! Turtles are going to die!"
Guess what? That flapping plastic bag is a distraction from the much more important, yet all-too-often overlooked fact that you are driving. Driving a particulate-spewing, gas-devouring, pavement-loving machine.
And that is the role of the paper/plastic debate for far too many casual environmentalists: an eye-catching distraction from far more threatening concerns."
His stuff is bombproof -- my group of a dozen+ riders and skiers have used his stuff forever.
