A&W is launching a nationwide exchangeable cup program in an effort to reduce waste and promote circular usage.

The 'A&W One Cup' program is asking customers to buy an exchangeable One Cup for $3 when ordering any beverage. The cup can be returned to A&W where it will be exchanged for a freshly cleaned and sanitized One Cup. Customers will also get a 20% on their next beverage purchase.

According to A&W, every year over a billion of single-use cups end up in landfills in Canada.

"At A&W, our commitment to our zero-waste journey is unwavering, and addressing the single-use cups waste issue is a significant stride towards our journey to zero-waste,” says Angela Griffiths, VP of food safety, animal welfare and environment with A&W Food Services of Canada. “That's why we're thrilled to introduce our One Cup program nationwide in Canada. When crafting this program, we prioritized making it effortless, convenient, and accessible for our guests. We do the dishwashing for our guests so that they can enjoy the benefits of using reusable cups without the hassle.”
