Coffee Cup Revolution

Every year, thanks to sponsorship and community support, Binners' Project hosts the Coffee Cup Revolution to demonstrate what a coffee refund system can achieve as well as openly dialogue how binning can support green communities, and vice versa.

THE POP-UP DEPOT (11:00 am to 2:00 pm) 
Binners' Project members design, set-up, and run the depot that serves 150+ binners, who exchange 50,000+ cups for 5¢ a cup, administering thousands of dollars in refunds. 

ROUNDTABLE DISCUSSIONS (11:30 am to 1:30 pm) 
Parallel to the depot, four binners will pair with four community leaders to co-facilitate open discussions between binners, planners, organizations, and the public on a variety of topics related to green, inclusive economies. (Speakers and topics for the 2017 event will be announced shortly.)

Thank you for reading this story...

More people are reading than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.

If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.

We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing in 2017.
