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 Plus campaign.
  • Give your workplace’s closest coffee shop a head’s up. You can even ask if they’d be willing to hang a poster.
