Huggy the Muggy was born from a late night conversation with some good friends about how to take a more creative, inspiring and fun approach to sustainability activism, and the issue of waste. We thought encouraging people to carry their mug – to hug it – would create a spirit of celebration and fun. And Huggy is really quite huggable. Designed and made by Emily Rose, Huggy is comfortable to wear, soft, and just the right size to fit through doors and on the metro. Since being born in 2010, Huggy has gained many friends, with whom Huggy keeps up through Facebook!
