    Where I live, we have water restrictions for lawn watering but we also have a Starbucks on every corner.

    While I do like Starbucks coffee, I am lucky to visit them more than 4 times a year. I find it very difficult to spend more than a buck and a half for a cup of coffee.

    If this is indeed true, they won't get my 15 bucks a year from the 4 cups I buy, anymore.

    The only real problem here is too big of a water bill, and they/we are paying for it. Water is a renewable resource. It gets recycled. You probably washed you car with some of that same water. Starbucks will probably see the error of their ways and find another way to keep their utensils clean, I hope. Do you think they will lower the price of a cup after they realize the savings on the water bill? lol
