Our Place Is Giving Back and Celebrating Pride All Year with a New Mug Set
The makers of the ultra-chic pan you see all over your Instagram feed, Our Place, just added a new collection of mugs to their line of traditionware, and the meaning behind the launch is even more special than the mugs themselves. Purposely planned for July 1, Our Place launched their first-ever line of mugs to celebrate the fact that Pride is evergreen.
If you're looking to make more impactful purchases this year, grab a set of the Full of Pride Mugs before they sell out. They're a sophisticated addition to the already stylish Our Place collection, and more importantly, 20% of proceeds will go towards the Los Angeles LGBT Center's Pride Pantry to alleviate food insecurity in the LGBTQ+ community. According to the Center, 24% of LGBT seniors don't have enough food to eat each month, and donations help contribute to the pantry and provide more help for LGBT youth, transgender healthcare, and legal services for those in need.

Designed by queer Japanese-Mexican ceramic artist Viviana Matsuda, these mugs are hand-painted with the colors of "queer joy, solidarity, and protest." No two mugs are exactly alike, so you can be sure you're getting a piece that's singular and unique. The Family Brunch Collection is designed to spark conversation with our chosen family, so included with the two mugs is a set of Brunch Banter cards to encourage spending time around the table and meaningful conversation. Perfect for coffee, ice cream, or a hot toddy, these mugs are a welcome reminder that Pride doesn't end with June, and the meaning behind the month should be celebrated all year long.
The thoughtfully designed, limited-edition set is the company's first foray into mugs, and they're great for gifting or adding to your collection of homeware while giving back and celebrating the LGBTQ+ community long after June is over.
