Name of the campaign:
Kill the Cup/ One Less Cup Campaign

A brief description of the campaign, including how students and/or employees were engaged:

The Sustainability Club participated for two years in the Kill the Cup campaign. This campaign was geared to ending single use coffee cups on campus. The last two years, during the campaign there was a 20% increase in the number of students/employees using reusable cups. The Kill the Cup Campaign was a national campaign and is no longer happening- so this year the campus developed it's own campaign- One Less Cup. This campaign will run late in Fall 2016 semester, with the hope of seeing an increase in results


A brief description of the measured positive impact(s) of the campaign:

We were able to get the numbers of cups people used from two of our coffee places on campus- thus being able to come up with the 20% increase in reusable coffee cups used.
