Eckerd College in Florida launches a reward scheme to promote reusable cups
The Office of Sustainability at Eckerd College joined the Fill It Forward campaign to encourage its students to bring-their-own cups and ditch single-use cups. Using the Fill It Forward app, created by Green Menu Inc, the students will now be able to track their drink purchases and redeem prizes for their efforts. Students can paste a barcode sticker on their cups which will be scanned with every drink purchase made in-campus, earning 20 points for each. Students can then choose from different prizes after accumulating 300 or 500 points. Starbucks, who is a participating company, will also provide a 0.50 USD discount for students who bring-their-own cups.
