Cup Worthy Program
Help us reduce the waste and destruction caused by paper cup production by bringing your reusable travel mug for to-go beverage orders. We'll donate 20 cents to a local nonprofit every time you do!
Our current recipient is:
"Launched in Asheville in 2012, Bee City USA® is a nonprofit national organization that galvanizes communities to sustain pollinators--responsible for 1 in 3 bites we eat and the reproduction of 90% of the world's wild plant species--by providing pollinators with healthy habitat, rich in a variety of native plants and free to nearly free of pesticides. To date we have certified 36 cities seven of them in North Carolina. In 2015 we launched sister program, Bee Campus USA, and have certified 16 campuses to date, including UNC Asheville and the North Carolina Arboretum. Bee City USA and Bee Campus USA mobilize communities to plant and maintain more pollinator-friendly habitat, rich in a diversity of native plant species and free to nearly free of pesticides."
