Huntsville, AL's Kaffeeklatsch has a Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle program

I got this in an e-mail from Kaffeeklatsch (coffee/tea, as in bulk and accessories, shop downtown in Huntsville, highly recommended place if you haven't been there) and I thought I would pass it along.

For many years, we have been reusing and recycling corrugated boxes required for shipping our coffees and teas. If you have received a UPS delivery from us, you might have seen our green "Reuse and Recycle" sticker. Recently we filled two large car trunks with the boxes that couldn't be used for shipping, and we took them to our local recyclers. Some of our customers bring in our Kraft shopping bags that feature The Kaffeeklatsch logo, and we are happy to reuse them. We are now offering an incentive to local customers who bring in our custom-printed shopping bags clean and in good condition. Receive a 40-cent credit per shopping bag towards your purchase when you bring in those bags to be reused.
We are now making an effort to include "Reduce" in our "Reuse and Recycle" program. A few folks have been bringing their own glass jars to be filled with coffee or tea rather than using the pound and half-pound bags that we provide. This step saves paper, as well as the logo labels that we use and will reduce packaging materials. If you would like to bring your own glass jars, we will be happy to fill them and provide a label to identify the type of coffee or tea. Please be sure they are clean and dry and have a good airtight seal.

For more information, you can hit up their website.
