free coffee @ the library – with a reusable mugs!

Many libraries like mine often offer free coffee to students during exam times. I love the idea but hate the waste of it all. I was pleased to read that Wake Forest’s Z. Smith Reynolds Library during their “Wake the Library” week worked with their  Office of Sustainability “To reduce waste from the more than 2,000 cups of free coffee consumed in the library during exam time”  by supplying collected ” tasteful and tacky coffee mugs” for students to use from folks around campus! Hopefully many students also carried with them their own reusable mugs as well.
