A little over two months ago, on Earth Day, we rolled out out 25-cent to-go cup upcharge at all of our Portland locations, after testing it since August 2018 at our newer Seven Corners Café.
Our Marketing & Sustainability Director, Karen Lickteig, was invited to be on the Oregon Public Broadcasting (OPB) - Think Out Loud show to talk about why we’re charging for cups and how the program is going so far.
Listen to the 15-minute interview on the OPB - Think Out Loud webpage or on the player below.
Think Out Loud also took public comments on our new initiative on their Facebook page, and got lots of comments and positive feedback! Dave Miller shared a few of them on-air.
