Reusable Mug Program

Sustainability Festival 2012

The BU community used over 1.2 million single-use paper coffee cups in 2011 alone!

Since 2009, sustainability@BU has provided reusable coffee mugs to community members who sign up to Join The Challenge, a monthly competition to reduce our environmental footprint. Mugs are offered at the annual Comm Ave Fair and Sustainability Festival, both in September to coincide with the monthly challenge to “De-cup Your Decaf”.

Visit our Ten Sustainable Actions page for information on where you can get a discount on coffee just by bringing your mug!
