What is the "Use Your Mug" Initiative?

A campaign to encourage Galwegians to use their reusable mugs. A recent survey completed by Galway City Council revealed that four out of five people have a reusable cup but only one out of five use them regularly.

This environmental campaign was launched by Galway City Council and 2GoCup in order to dramatically reduce single use coffee cups in Galway City. For more information visit

A large green coffee cup called ‘Muggins’ is being placed in various locations around the City. Locals and tourists are being encouraged to take a selfie with Muggins and post it on social media using the #UseYourMug‌
