This week’s Memos From Mommy is brought to you by CupKozy, a company that I am thrilled to collaborate with. For those not familiar, CupKozys are an awesome, reusable and convenient alternative to those cardboard sleeves coffee companies put around your cup to keep your coffee warm and your hand cool. According to CupKozy, “It’s estimated that 14 billion cups of coffee are served every year wrapped in single-use, cardboard coffee sleeves, which result in 2.8 billion pounds of trash!” And, “Based on 2008 sales reports, CupKozy helped to keep 19,000 pounds of trash out of U.S. landfills.”
I happened to win a CupKozy from a Twitter contest (whadaya know…talking about Twitter again, follow them @CupKozy) and now I’m a huge fan. Back at Christmas, I crocheted a bunch of my own reusable coffee sleeves, and while they are adorable, they are terribly hard to keep track of. The cool thing about the CupKozy is it rolls up neatly and attaches to my key chain. MUCH easier to find with one hand while the other is holding a 26 lb squirmy toddler who wants nothing more than to wiggle free and pester the other patrons.
Here are some other cool facts about CupKozy
– CupKozys are handmade. No factories, sweatshops or slave labor.
– The fabric used in making CupKozys is wool, a renewable resource.
– Fits most 12, 16 & 20 oz. disposable coffee cups.
– CupKozys are compact and can be rolled-up for attaching to your key-ring, bag, belt loop, etc.
– Available in a variety of stylish color combinations.
– Can be custom printed for corporate branding opportunities.
CupKozy is offering not one, not two, but THREE CupKozys to Memos From Mommy participants, so you people better get it together and ENTER! Seriously. This is a cool prize. I go nowhere without mine (and I’ll definitely have it with me when I go check out the new changing tables coming soon to my local Starbucks!!). I will draw the random winners next Monday, so entries will be open all week.
For those of you new to MFM, you can enter by submitting your own “memo” to your child/children/fetus/dog/pet rock in the comments section. All winners are chosen at random by Random.org.
Here’s my memo:
I feel it’s important you know that your name is actually Kendall, not Robble. I apologize for the confusion. It’s an odd nickname, I know. It seems that in your early days you made what we call “Hamburgler noises”. The “robble, robble, robble” sounds that you chattered early on have made a lasting impression. So much so, that you father and I have a hard time going a day with out calling you Robble. It was wonderfully cute and our own little inside joke when you were younger, but now I’m terrified you are actually thinking this is your name. You respond to it sometimes better than your own. And just yesterday I heard your dad call you Rob. Your nickname has a nickname that sounds like a real name and it’s not your name. Please note this.
Kendall is just about 13 months old
