Stop Sucking

You can use UYOC to find cafes with NPS - no plastic straws. Good humans like the Croc Shake Crew, Wellington, who choose reusables. You can buy your own Forever Straw Co straws, like these, right HERE. Also, remember not to accidentally walk away with their straws! It happens!

No Plastic Straws Please

You can use the uyoc guide to locate cafes, juice bars and eateries around New Zealand who have said 'not on my watch' to serving plastic straws. This is a tough call to make, as sucking on single-use plastic is a habit we have all grown up with. By supporting these businesses, we are sending the message that we, too, don't want to be a part of plastic pollution any longer.


Free Water Refill

Use UYOC to locate a cafe near you who will refill your water flask for free - whether you're a customer or not. And look out for these signs around your town in the windows of all sorts of places who would rather refill you than see more single use plastic bottles floating about New Zealand. If you want to help recruit water refill 'stations' - get in touch HERE.
