Reusable mugs and cups
Who says Christmas markets cannot be environmentally friendly! Two years ago Brno introduced a system of reusable cups or mugs at its Christmas markets, as the only town in the Czech Republic. This year, too, you will have the opportunity to enjoy your favourite beverage from a reusable cup or mug. Look for the traditional “Our Christkind” collection, with the picture of four squares by Petr Kvíčala. If you do not have the complete four-piece collection at home already, this is your chance.
How does it work? It is simple!
1. BUYING SOMETHING TO EAT OR DRINK?
Get your beverage in a reusable cup or mug and pay the deposit.
2. NEED A REFILL?
The vendor will give you a clean cup or mug.
3. LEAVING THE MARKET?
You can take the cup or mug home as a souvenir; or you can return in at any concession stand and the vendor will give you your deposit back.
During this year’s Brno Christmas, you can have a reusable ceramic mug for CZK 70 or a plastic cup for CZK 50.
