Treehuggin' Juice-sippers

Juice in recycled cups. Yummers.

'Twas the perfect weather to hold on for dear life on the back of a friend's Vespa and take a ride to Daily Juice for a Marigold dosage. (Take one and call me in the morn.)

In the sunshine, outside, I squeezed the disposable cup tightly, slurping up this moment of mango beauty.

Then, written in green scroll on this what I thought to be "plastic" cup: "100% Bio-degradable. Made of Corn."

Now, that is beautiful. There's hope for us yet.
