Bring Your Own Mug
The average American office worker uses 500 disposable cups a year, or 1.4 per day. Americans throw away 2.5 million plastic bottles every hour. Help reduce this waste by using a reusable mug or bottle. Starbucks, Campus Convenience, and other local vendors, offer discounts on coffee if you bring your own mug.
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”.
