Does campus dining operations offer discounts to customers who use reusable mugs instead of disposable cups in to-go food service operations?:

A brief description of the reusable mug program:

At campus Port City Java (PCJ) locations, anyone can purchase a 16 oz mug that costs $7.95-$15.95. The coffee and refill costs are:

- $1.45 to refill PCJ mug, first cup free
- $2.00 without PCJ mug

An additional campaign, One Less Cup, is a collaboration between University Dining, Waste Reduction and Recycling and the University Sustainability Office. The program features stickers that can be applied to any mug or cup and then used to receive $.10 off fountain drink and drip coffee purchases.

Amount of the discount offered for using reusable mugs:
