Seriously, if you’re going to spend that much time at a fancy coffee house (and pay that much money for java) then you may as well look good at the same time. These ribbed coffee cup sleeves are designed to replace the brown cardboard sleeves they give to protect your fingers from the heat; and just think how many post-consumer recycled trees you’ll be saving! Who knew being green could look so cool?
