The EcoCup and its ilk. The EcoCup is a porcelain beverage container with a silicone lid. It's meant for regular, permanent use, but is designed to look like a common version of the cheap, throwaway coffee cup.

I saw another version of an EcoCup just this evening; it was a clear, hard plastic version of the cheap, soft plastic disposable soda cup, complete with snap-on lid and a permanent, hard plastic straw, but I can't find a picture of it on line right now.

It's a great idea to encourage people to use more permanent cups and fewer disposables to clutter up landfills. But is that a reason to imitate cheap bad taste? I don't get that part. Travel mugs with sweaters make better sense, to me.

Dr. Pepper has yet another new flavor: Diet Dr. Pepper Berries and Cream . Why?

I suppose I'll have to try it at some point, but I'm not looking forward to the prospect.
