Hands-on Training and Outreach at New Seasons for BYOC Campaign – Volunteers Needed

Join Recycling Advocates on for a quick and fun training session on how to become part of the Bring Your Own Cup Campaign.   Be part of the team that visits coffee shops to learn what is being done to reduce waste created by the one-time-use white paper cup, through incentives to bring your own cup and durable dine-in options.   We have fun and effective BYOC tools to offer them!

If you wish, rejoin us and share your experiences at New Seasons.

Once familiar with the survey, you can continue to volunteering to reach out to coffee shops.  We hope to visit the over 250 area coffee shops in our campaign, with a goal of signing up 50 coffee shops by the end of 2018.

Remember, time spent on this campaign counts as Master Recycler volunteer hours!
