"Having a cuppa doesn't need to and shouldn't need to create trash - just good times! If you know you're going out for coffee & the cafe doesn't provide actual cups, then perhaps that cafe isn't worth it and you should find another one. Otherwise, it's as simple as taking your own cup in. It doesn't have to be a flash one, it could even be a jar or a mug from home! 😎
Pictured is a tumbler by @stanley_brand (most used item, for smoothies/bubble tea - my loves), insulated thermos by @kleankanteen(use this loads for tea on winter mornings & occasionally for coffee when I feel like a fancy adult), and the classic on-the-go coffee mug by @keepcup (this is actually my sisters, I sold mine bc I didn't need it!). Whatever tools work for you, go for it. I love the two I use because I know they won't crack!
Also pictured are things you already have you might be able to use - jars or mugs!
New Zealand is real lucky with @uyoc.nz helping us out finding good cafes. Check them out to possibly find some local cafes with good vibes & ethos near you! πŸ’š"

I Want To Believe

Use Your Own Cup. One of the simplest things we can all do to keep our planet inhabitable and healthy. Reduce single-use waste. Start with your coffee life. Then water bottles, straws, plastic bags. Turn this around. One less coffee cup at a time.
