Mug | Drink for Sustainable Culture

Mug | Drink for Sustainable Culture


Looking to brighten up the culture at work, in your community or neighbourhood? 


This mug celebrates notable civic values, virtues and principles of working and "living well together" down through the ages - from the Ancient Greeks to today. 


Those who drink from this mug are promised a sustainable and flourishing culture that supports human health, happiness and effectiveness.  Okay, you actually have to "be what you drink" in order for this to be true, but you get the idea.


Gift it with the "Mug | Drink for Toxic Culture" and ask your employees, friends or community partners to "Choose wisely."  These mugs are a jovial, visual and impactful way to express how important respectful conduct is between people. 


Handy Leadership Tool:

Are you a Board or Council member, Executive, HR Manager, or Sustainability professional? Perhaps you are a champion of workplace wellness or you just want to enhance your work environment.
