Reusable Cup

The Reusable Cup Project intends to introduce reusable cups within the Mensa and try to move away from the single-use carton cup. Would you appreciate using reusable cups within the HSG? Inform yourself about the project!

The By&For project team has finalized the implementation of the Reusable Cup Project, by working with the Swiss start-up kooky.! The test phase in the library building at the University of St.Gallen was held from the 20th of April 2022 up until now.


With this, the first stage has come to an end. The project has existed for many years now at the University under different names. After a long period of deliberations and convincing various stakeholders, a big first step in the right direction has finally been taken.


Students are known for being big coffee drinkers and around 1'000 paper cups are used and thrown away on campus every day. With this project, we aim to make a key wasteful element at the University more sustainable.


In order to be able to continue this project, we now need YOUR help! In order to decide whether to continue with the system of kooky. we need your opinion. Please leave your opinion, positive or negative, down below!
