Earth Day is here today, Wednesday, April 22! It’s one of the largest worldwide environmental days that celebrates and promotes protecting our earth! To celebrate, Starbucks is offering a free 16oz coffee or tea if you bring in a reusable mug at participating Canadian stores. Please note: Only hot brewed coffee or tea, and no modifications or customizations included. If you forgot your mug, pick one up at Starbucks for $1. Every time you bring in your reusable mug, you save 10 cents and a paper cup! That’s making a huge impact! Starbucks is also committed to reducing waste and recycling, and you can find more info about that here.
You can join more than 6 million Canadians by participating in Earth Day events and learning how to reduce your carbon footprint.
