Starting Your Mug Library

Providing an alternative, such as retaling reusables, or having a mug library, or a jar library, can hugely reduce your waste output, and the constant cost of single use packaging. There are may ways to go about it, so have a read - And it works for bowls, plates, containers too. Some cafes ask for a deposit. We find that trust is best. Because isn't that what this is all about? Doing things differently? Turning away from exisiting business models that involve the inevitable exchange of $$$ and instead saying, "We're a community, so let's behave like one". It could change the world....

 

One little idea...Do you have a local OpShop? Invite them to sell their mugs in your place? Arrange them in a basket, visible to customers, or hang on hooks on a wall space. Signage so customers know that they are reducing single use AND supporting a good cause - and you get to cut your single use packaging costs. Win, win, win.
