A&W Cup Crew – Exchangeable Cup Pilot in Greater Vancouver

The A&W exchangeable cup pilot, known as A&W Cup Crew, has launched in the Greater Vancouver area.

A&W Cup Crew - Exchangeable Cup Pilot in Greater Vancouver

The launch of A&W Cup Crew reflects A&W’s’ continued strategic commitment to reduce its environmental impact through a conscious use of packaging, energy, waste, and water.

How A&W Cup Crew Works

The A&W Cup Crew allows guests to enjoy their favourite drinks on-the-go and reduce the use of single-use cups.

To join the pilot program, you can simply purchase an A&W Cup Crew exchangeable cup for $3 the next time you order a beverage from the A&W menu at any participating restaurant in the Greater Vancouver Area.

The pilot program is a fully circular model.

You are encouraged to exchange your used exchangeable cup each time you visit an A&W restaurant, eliminating the need for single use paper cups.

Members will receive a $0.20 cent discount each time they return their exchangeable cup and will be served in a new cleaned and sanitized exchangeable cup.

A&W Cup Crew exchangeable cups will be cleaned and sanitized in the same dishwashers used for the variety of reusable dishware that is already part of the unique A&W experience.  

The A&W Cup Crew exchangeable cup can be used for both hot and cold drinks and is made from recyclable polypropylene that is BPA free.

Did you know?

Each year, the average Canadian throws away 250 single use paper cups.

A&W Canada is committed to finding a way to limit the number of single use cups used at its restaurants.

Understanding that sustainability requires partnership throughout the supply chain, they are partnering with The Coca-Cola Company to bring this program to life.

A&W has a long history of reducing single-use packaging – guests who dine-in have been served beverages in frosted glass mugs since 1956.

A&W has a long history of taking actions to reduce our environmental impact – from being the first QSR in North America to eliminate plastic straws, to using compostable packaging, real mugs, plates and cutlery.

Through their World Without Waste initiative, A&W is working to reduce packaging waste and promote a circular economy.
