First celebrated in 1970, April 22nd, or Earth Day, is now acknowledged in more than 193 countries – all demonstrating support for environmental protection. Here at Be Fresh, we care about the earth and what goes in it. So, what are we doing for Earth Day?
Free Drip Coffee (IF you bring a reusable mug)
More reusable mugs = fewer single-use cups in our local landfills. We’re planning on abolishing single-use cups entirely, but until then, on April 22nd enjoy free Be Fresh drip coffee if you bring a reusable mug. Grab your S’Wells, your Keep Cups, and any favourite reusable mug you have lying around – the more reusable mugs (and free coffee), the better.
