thats a bit of an exageration. Lids/cups/ect are all recycled materials at most places, annd theyre made in bulk. im sure that a sleeve of cups, a sleeve of lids, etc all is 200 liters... but really, theres so many other things we should worry about other then breaking down that--- how about people DRIVING 1 block to pick up a newspaper instead of walking, people littering, people w/o solar panels... etc etc

thats misleading. You can't say its takes 200 litres of water to make a latte. OH BY THE WAY we`re including making the container and feeding the fcuking cow. Arseholes.

"but... if we snack on people, that's less lattes, and less lattes mean more water.... You`re definately onto something..."

I like the way you think.

This vid leaves me skeptical. For some reason, I can`t shake the feeling that they used numbers of the amount of water used for a whole coffee plant, a whole stack of cups and lids, the water that`s already in the milk.
Hardly breaks down to 200 liters for ONE cup of coffee in my head.

Good point though - we definitely are wasteful, but this video seems somewhat over the top.

*stretches comfortably* I`m counting the years until we finally eradicate ourselves off this planet.

"I lol'd at the "but we won`t run out of water!" comments. We won`t run out of people too, doesn`t mean we should start snacking on them."

but... if we snack on people, that`s less lattes, and less lattes mean more water.... You`re definately onto something...
