At the Bovine Bakery in Point Reyes Station, CA, there’s a custom shelf on the wall that holds a collection of coffee cups. I thought it was a nice decoration, but then I read the posted notes - people can leave a coffee cup and use it instead of a throw-away paper cup. It’s a win for the Bovine Bakery, the environment, and the Point Reyes community.
Why I love this idea:
Less paper cups in the trash
The coffee is $0.25 cheaper when you use your own cup
I’d be more likely to get my coffee from a cafe where I leave my coffee cup
It’s a great decoration - the coffee cup is like an online avatar. My favorite is the metal coffee cup in the bottom right.
