Have you heard about our Bring Your Own Cup campaign? Since 2013, PJ has partnered with Actual Cafe to save paper and the planet. When customers bring their own reusable coffee cup to the cafe, instead of using a disposable paper cup for their coffee order, Actual Cafe donates 25 cents to Planting Justice. So far, this campaign has raised over $2,000 for Planting Justice and saved 6,440 paper cups – which means we’ve also kept 1,545.6 lbs of CO2 emissions out of our atmosphere!
Now, we’re taking the Bring Your Own Cup campaign to another local cafe – our neighbors at Farley’s West – to get more people involved in the movement we’re building to support our people and save our planet. And we want you to be a part of it!
On Saturday, March 5th, we are going to do a flashmob at Farley’s to launch this iteration of the Bring Your Own Cup campaign. Our very own Daniel Francis Alper has written and choreographed a musical number that explains why bringing your own cup is so important. Check out our first performance of the song below!
We want this flashmob at Farley’s to be even bigger, better, and more memorable – so we need your participation!
We need singers and dancers (no experience necessary) to kick off the campaign and deliver the Bring Your Own Cup message to Farley’s customers. Before the actual flashmob, we will have three rehearsals:
- TOMORROW, Thursday, February 25th from 5:45 – 6:30 pm
- Tuesday, March 1st from 5:45 – 6:30 pm
- Thursday, March 3rd from 5:45 – 6:30 pm
The flashmob/performance will take place at 11:30 AM on Saturday, March 5th, and we’ll meet up for once last run-through that day at 10:45 AM. All ages welcome, and you can come to as many rehearsals as you want, but don’t need to come to all (or any – as long as you come at 10:45 the day of the flashmob) of them to be a part of the flashmob. We’ll also have printed lyrics that can be used during the performance, so it’s super low pressure and anyone can join in.
All rehearsals and the meet-up for the flashmob will be held at the Planting Justice office, located at PLACE (1121 64th Street, Oakland, CA).
Can’t wait to sing, dance and save the planet with you all!
