A&W Canada today announced the nationwide launch of its A&W One Cup program.
To participate in the program, all you have to do is buy an exchangeable One Cup for $3 when you order any beverage. From there, simply hold on to your cup after you’ve enjoyed your beverage and bring it with you the next time you visit, A&W will exchange it for a freshly cleaned and sanitized One Cup and you’ll get a 20-cent discount on your beverage.
When you bring in your One Cup, A&W restaurants will take care of the cleaning for you. This means you can keep an A&W One Cup in your car, office, or backpack, and exchange it for a clean cup whenever you visit an A&W restaurant. With this program, you can enjoy reusable cups without the hassle of washing them. All A&W restaurants that serve frosty glass mugs are able to exchange an A&W One Cup. To date, A&W has prevented over 55,000 cups from ending up in landfills since the program’s pilot launch in select Canadian markets and expect this number to grow into millions in the first year of the national launch.
According to A&W, over a billion of single-use cups end up in landfills in Canada every year.
