A free celebration of highly democratic and participatory approaches to teaching and learning.
May 13-17, 2013 in Portland's South Park Blocks
The SoMa EcoDistrict is partnering with multiple coffee shops in the district to offer a special Earth Day discount for guests who bring in their own coffee mug during the week of April 22nd. The goal of the campaign is to increase awareness of the tremendous amount of waste from the use of disposable coffee cups every day and to encourage new habits.
Participating retailers will offer a 50¢ discount on drink purchases (an increase from their typical 10¢ discount!) from April 22 through the 26.
