Intentionalist is excited to encourage our community to #SpendLikeItMatters and #ChooseReuse with the Reuse Seattle Coffee Pass!
How do you like your coffee? Black? With a splash of oat milk? Flavored with horchata or pumpkin spice? A completely original concoction invented by your favorite barista? However you like to enjoy your morning caffeination, have you thought about bringing your own cup when you order from your favorite coffee shop?
Seattle is known worldwide for its incredible coffee, including hundreds of independent coffee shops and cafes. With all those drink orders, you can imagine the enormous number of single-use cups that are disposed of every single day. When you bring your own cup from home, you’re taking an important and sustainable step that helps reduce waste and fight against climate change.

Get to know Reuse Seattle
Reuse Seattle is a coalition led by Seattle Public Utilities and the Seattle Office of Economic Development to help our city’s businesses make the switch from single-use to reusable foodservice packaging. The team behind this collaboration has been working with coffee shops across the city to make it easy for you to #ChooseReuse.
Reuse Seattle’s efforts to reduce single-use packaging go far beyond your average cup of joe. The team is also working with college campuses including University of Washington and Seattle Pacific University, local events like ZooTunes and Northwest Folklife Festival, and your favorite entertainment venues including Paramount Theater and the Showbox. Take a look at the Reuse in Action Map to find more locations where you can #ChooseReuse.
Pro tip: Anxious about holding up the line or ruining your barista’s flow? Just make sure the cup you bring is clean and empty. It’s also helpful to know what size drink your cup can hold.
