Coffee Culture Champions

Every Coffee Culture Cafe in New Zealand sells reusable take-out cups. And these guys didn't hesitate to jump on board when we approached them with the UYOC idea on day one. This makes them heroes to folks like us who want to try to reduce single-use waste in hospitality, and it also makes them unique - a major chain or franchise will usually want the waters tested before it decides to swim. Coffee Culture are game-changers. We salute them πŸ†

A Wee Review

...from our good instasista @queenstownlife: When it’s cold outside and you need something to fill up that tummy after skiing, snowboarding, sliding on your bum (just me?)πŸ‘ Miss Lucy's is a delightfully cozy place right in town. They’ve recently just announced their new Winter menu ⛄️ AND they just celebrated (in style I might add) ONE YEAR! πŸ’₯Amazing you lovely lot! Pizzas, salads, vegan treats, rooftop views (mountains hello!) and a lovely lovely place to settle round the fire. Who would you take?

Conscious Action

Happy 2nd birthday to Auckland based, Conscious Action. This team run regular workshops focusing on the when, how and why of making life better for longer for all. Click HERE to connect and here's a word from them, which I reckon is what it is all about:  Collaborating to come up with inspiring ways to live more consciously. It's one of our four pillars and a great way to engage with those that are doing similar things. By supporting each other we reach more people! The more connected we are the more impact we can create. We don’t need to know or do everything - most likely there’s amazing people to co-create with!
