Where is your donation going?

Your donation supports our current campaigns, which you can select on the donation page!

For example, Recycling Advocates is working with coffee shops and their customers to reduce single-use coffee cup waste and inspire customers to bring their own cup. We are testing various methods to effect behavior change for coffee drinkers.

Therefore, any donation allocated to the Coffee Cup Reduction (BYOC) campaign will be put to good use in the following ways:

  • Campaign graphic design work
  • Materials provided to coffee shops and employees (color copies, sign holder, card stock paper)
  • Materials provided to customers (bookmarks, reminder pamphlets, sign holders and picture frames)
  • Spreading the word via social media and monthly newsletters
  • Organization administrative work and customer service (legal paperwork, taxes, participation in focus groups)

Please specify which campaign you would like to support when you donate, otherwise we will use the donation where we feel it will be most effective.
