Mug Libraries Are King

We love a Cup Swap system. And many of our cafes are getting onto it. You can use the UYOC guide to find a cafe that operates a cup swapper system, a mug library, cup club, cup cycling, cup swtich, a booomerang cup - whatever you call it, it's the best news - for our planet, our community and our coffee life.
