What We Do...

...and why we do it are the same thing. Everything is connected. The UYO goal is to create a sense of shared responsibility between cafes and customers. We need to support each other in a vital mission to reduce single use waste. And while we're about it, we need to promote generousity and kindness in all things. This is what the world needs now. Kindness creates kindness and stewardship creates an increased quality of life for us all.
