Love your takeaway coffee? How about a discount!
Brother Bear Café, Alchemy Café and Bond and Lane Canteen give you 50c off your coffee every time you bring your own cup.
Australians love their coffee. So much so that OVER 3 BILLION takeaway cups and lids are wasted every year. Contrary to popular belief, takeaway coffee cups are rarely recycled and only rarely composted due to inadequate industrial composting facilities. Instead they go to landfill and the cost of increasing landfill is passed onto the community. But the good news is that everyone can do something about this.
Responsible cafes sell ‘keep cups’. Each time you reuse it for your next delicious cup you get 50c off the price. If you drink coffee regularly this will add up over time. You can reduce waste, save money and be the change for a cleaner, better world.
