Buying a reusable coffee cup is just one of many ways we can reduce and reuse, but sometimes we need that extra little push to make sure we use it. A reusable cup discount does the trick. One of the best things about owning my own cup, aside from the number of single-use coffee cups I’ve avoided since buying it, is that I can get discounts on my coffee when I use it. You don’t need to go to a big chain to get money off – there are plenty of great, local specialty coffee shops offering discounts!
I have only included places that have been tried and tested by me personally. which is why I have a picture of my KeepCup outside each of the coffee shops, so you know I actually went there. I took note of the discount by either asking in store, checking their social media, or contacting the store directly. I’m only recommending places I would go to myself because I know they have great coffee and a great atmosphere!
