Post-consumer

The new cups at Starbucks are made from 10% “post-consumer” products. The word “recycled” is passe’.

Another trendy term is Environmental Footprint. You can find out your impact on the environment here. I like how this site doesn’t even attempt to be accurate.

My score is 14, meaning that if everyone lived like me we would need 3.1 planets. I played a second time lying a fair bit and still ended up needing 2.2 earths.
