Cradle to Cradle: Remaking the Way We Make Things
This is the most important book I've ever read. Cradle to Cradle is a philosophy that calls for humanity to start building and living in a way that is both modern and comfortable and green and ecological. There is no waste in nature, why is there in the way we do things? We should be looking to mimic nature's processes in how we build and do everything. I don't want to live in a cave and this book lays out the future for how we can all do that.

This particular design has a silicone lid that securely attaches to the cup. The outside is matte and the inside is glazed. I prefer a version that Starbucks put out a few months ago. Their version is pretty much the same, but the outside is glazed (and of course has their logo) and the lid is plastic with a silicone liner to keep liquids sealed in. The key difference between the two is the price. "I Am Not A Paper Cup" is roughly $20 and the Starbucks version is $12. The upsides to either is that if you are a daily coffee drinker, you don't have to trash a paper cup and plastic lid every time you get take-out coffee. The downside is that both of them hold about 8 oz. - not favorable if you normally order a "grande" at Starbucks. Another issue for commuters is that it is not spill-proof or splash-proof. And finally, the Starbucks version CANNOT go into the microwave.
