Kick the Cup
As a university, we’re always searching for ways to reduce our footprint and produce less waste on campus. If you’re a regular in the Tim Hortons or Starbucks lineup, and purchase a cup of coffee every week day, your caffeine kick contributes approximately 120 single use, disposable cups to the landfill each year. But it doesn’t have to!
An obvious way to keep these cups out of the trash is to use your own reusable, travel mug instead of a disposable cup.
Kick the Cup is an initiative created to encourage students, staff and faculty to do just that. When you use your own mug, you’ll get a 10- to 50-cent discount – but the real prize is knowing you’re helping contribute to a more sustainable campus.
Locations participating in Kick the Cup include: Tim Hortons, Starbucks, C-Store, Robbins, the Bean’s List and Alberta College Campus. Let’s all do our part to kick waste on campus! Learn more at MacEwanEats.ca/Sustainability.
