Goal of the project “bambecher is a reusable cup system in bamberg, which describes the initiative as follows:” you buy your coffee in a cafe or bakery and drink it from a reusable cup. You can return it after use to any participating cafe or bakery outlet. If you return the cup, you get a deposit chip that you can exchange for a reusable cup the next time you buy coffee, and the game starts all over again.”
Although the volunteers have already won over restaurants and cafes to the idea, more seed money is needed to make the concept a reality: a fundraising campaign on the internet is expected to raise 3.250 euros in donations are collected.
How many catering businesses are likely to participate in the returnable cup system, what the city of bamberg has to say about it and what role city marketing plays, you can read in a detailed background article in the premium section of our site.
