Returnable Cup Trial Kicks off with €2 Coffee on Green Friday

Nine cafés and coffeeshops taking part in Galway City Council's returnable cup trial are offering you a fantastic Green Friday gift - discounted €2 coffee in their 2GoCups all-day-long on Friday December 2nd!

Customers can reduce coffee cup waste, save money, and support a local business over their morning coffee!

Get your €2 coffee in Anton’s Café on Fr Griffin Road; C’est la Vie in Terryland Retail Park; The Creamery overlooking Salthill Prom; Greens & Co in Galway's Westend; Mocha Beans' three locations in Salthill, Cross Street, and Newcastle; Roscoes on Eglington Street or Rouge on Dominick Street.

2GoCup €2

Speaking about the initiative, Tiarnan McCusker, Environmental Awareness Officer with Galway City Council explained; "We have just had Black Friday, which is a welcome boost to the local retailers but inadvertently leads to an increase in packaging waste. Green Friday is a novel way for us to do something good for the environment. A €2 coffee in a 2GoCup will save you money and reduce the 22,000 coffee cups disposed of each hour in Ireland. Simply ‘borrow’ a fresh reusable cup for €1 from any of the participating cafes, and you can return it at any time to get your money back."

Feedback about the cups and the scheme is welcome to and you can read more about the scheme at

The Use Your Mug! Campaign is supported by the Local Authority Prevention Network (LAPN) fund from the EPA and the Waste Prevention Fund.
