Muttigans: Free Coffee for Trash

WIN WIN for Sea Turtles AND coffee drinkers!!

Muttigans has a great program to help keep our beaches cleaned up... which means less garbage washing back into the ocean to cause damage to sea animals.

Pick up a special plastic bucket from Muttigans (located in Emerald Isle and in Swansboro). Fill the bucket with litter as you walk along the beach. Once full, return the filled bucket to Muttigans, and they will exchange it for a free coffee!

What a great way to engage youngsters to become environmentally aware, spend time together, talk about protecting sea turtles, AND get a great cup of coffee!

Grab your kids, grandkids, and visitors' kids and fill a bucket!

The "trash for coffee" bucket.
