Every business here is ProActive about their role in halting throwaway culture by welcoming UYO = Use Your Own.

 

So, this is a cafe guide, but perhaps more than that, it is testimony that the hospitality industry is prepared to move away from single use serviceware. The next step? Request legislative support from our Government! Head to Takeaway Throwaways to level the playing field!

Cafe of the Day

We are a small fish and chip shop, that serves coffee, based on the east coast of northland New Zealand. We are passionate about reducing waste in as many ways as we can. We have only had this business for one year and are slowly making changes. We are about to take the plunge and do away with takeaway coffee cups. Customers are most welcome to bring their own cups and containers for any products

A ProActivist Cafe Guide Is What?

A Proactivist goes beyond talking ~ They roll their sleeves up and get busy with living and working the solutions.

In this context, here, on this website, and in this hospo community, ProActvist cafes & customers do reuse, making new normals to evolve.

Activists stir the shit but then the proactivists move us into real life action, that can build to become legislative and industry change.

It is post-cool: there is no need to impress anyone, just do the work, together.

So, we invite you to support small (and bigger) businesses who are proactively addressing the world’s struggle against throwaway culture. 

Please imagine a motivational last line here ~ one that makes you want to start refusing single use forever, today.
