I don't drink a lot of coffee but when I do I like a proper coffee. Walking around the city I see that there are a lot of people who love coffee, particularly the takeaway kind. Those disposable cups and plastic lids are almost a uniform now that winter is here warming the inside and out. It is estimated that an unbelievable 1 billion takeaway cups and lids are landfilled or littered each year in Australia. That's a pretty scary figure.
The Responsible Cafes program encourages cafes to discount coffee for those customers who bring a reusable cup. Generally the discount is between 30c and 50c but some have been know to discount more. As part of the program, the cafes are placed on a map to make them easier for us to find.
As many cafes are not aware of this program, or Plastic Free July, why not spread the word.
