If you forget your reusable coffee cup, be sure to recycle at least one thing from your single-use container: the cardboard sleeve. The paper sleeves are made from a flat paperboard and cardboard (which itself is often made from recycled materials), and they are recyclable with traditional cardboard boxes and paperboard. If you compost, you can also shred them into small pieces and add them to your pile. And of course you can always ask for no sleeve if it's something you really don't need.
