Win prizes by opting for a reusable coffee mug in April 2017

During the month of April 2017, a group of Portland green teams sweetens your switch to reusable coffee mugs.

Reduce Reuse Recaffeinate 2017

In celebration of Earth Month 2017, Portlanders who bring a reusable mug to coffee shops between April 1 - 30 can get entered into a raffle to win prizes!

How does it work?

  1. Download a Reduce, Reuse, Recaffeinate punch card.
  2. Ask your barista to initial or punch your card each time you use a reusable cup.
  3. Email a picture of your card (with at least one punch) by April 30, 2017.
  4. Get entered to win prizes.

*Valid for workplaces located within Portland.


The Corporate Sustainability Collaborative thanks these generous sponsors for their donations: 

Mt. Hood Meadows KEEN footware  Sokol Blosser  EcoTeas

Prizes include ski lift tickets from Mt. Hood Meadows, a gift card for one pair of KEEN shoes, wine from Sokol Blosser, and gift boxes from EcoTeas.

Get your workplace involved

Post the Reduce, Reuse, Recaffeinate poster.

Distribute punch cards.


Make it easy:

  • Put punch cards in an envelope attached to the poster to make it easy for coworkers to get started.
  • Hang the poster and punch-cards near the door where coworkers head out to get coffee.
  • If you have reusable mugs in your break-room or kitchen, pull them out of the cupboard and put them in a more noticeable place with a reminder about the Reduce Reuse Recaffeinate campaign.

Prep ahead of time:

  • Print punch cards on re-used paper (paper already printed on one side).
  • Give your workplace’s closest coffee shop a head’s up. You can even ask if they’d be willing to hang a poster.
