Starbucks is introducing an affordable way for its customers to reduce waste. The Huffington Post reports that starting today, Starbucks will offer $1 reusable cups. Customers who use the cups, which look like the standard paper cups with the Starbucks logo, will get a dime off their beverage.

According to its website, Starbucks has a goal to serve five percent of beverages in personal reusable tumblers by 2015.

In honor of National Coffee Day, find out which professions consume the most cups of coffee.
Do you start each morning with a cup of coffee? Or are you one of those people that sip a cup of Joe for a mid-morning pick me up, an afternoon push and an after work motivator? Dunkin Donuts and CareerBuilder teamed up to create a survey of which professions rely on coffee most. And of those surveyed, 63 percent drink at least two cups of coffee per day and an additional 28 percent drink at least three cups. There are a ton of teachers, nurses and business executives in the area - we are guessing that retailers like Starbucks and Dunkin Donuts and convenience stores like 7-Eleven are quite busy here in 18966. How many cups of coffee do you drink each day?
