We are partnering up with One Big Table to bring you the Hug A Mug Drive!
One Big Table will stop using disposable coffee mugs for their customer’s to-go coffees, and will instead be offering real ceramic, reusable mugs that patrons can take with them on the go and return to One Big Table at their convenience. This way, even if you forget your own reusable mug at home you can still get a coffee to go in a waste-free way.
Using a reusable mug is one of the easiest swaps you can make in order to reduce your waste, and we want to make this even easier by providing reusable mugs right where you get your coffee.
For the Hug a Mug project we are asking for mug donations from our community! We’ve all got that cupboard at home full of so many mugs that we don’t ever use, so why not make some space in your home and help contribute to waste reduction in our community? Bring your excess mugs down to One Big Table to help us out with this waste-free initiative! Starting March 24th 2018 and continuing until April 14th 2018 you can drop your mugs at One Big Table – 1440 St Paul & Unless Market – 438 Lawrence Ave. Please make sure all donated mugs are clean, chip free and dishwasher safe.
One Big Table will be launching the mug program on April 21st 2018 to celebrate Earth Day. Be sure to stop by and experience the new way to get coffee to-go.
Our first social took place on March 27 2018.
Here is what Shayne had to say about the event….
“We were overjoyed with the turnout for our first sustainabiliyt based social last night. BIG thank you to all who attended and shared their energy, passion and ideas with our team and others, you made the event a success”
Psst… our first events success was largely due to Shayne’s passion and hard work – making sure everything detail was taken care of.
