Survey: Paper or Porcelain?

As we noted recently, a cup of joe has a big ecological footprint,whether it is the the type of coffee, the cup you drink it from, even the stir stick. Then of course there is the garbage generated and the exhaust fumes at the drive-through window.

Commenters in the earlier post certainly had opinions, some of which are quoted below.

UPDATE: Warren chiselled out an early post on this subject three years ago!
