Tall Poppy Central

Paraparaumu people, Tall Poppy Central, are thrilled to bits to be stepping it up with a new People's Coffee brew for the summer. Head out of Welly, up the Kapiti Coast - UYOC for a discount, and you can pay it forward here, too. Share the coffee love. Magic. 

Stop Sucking

This is Stacy Heyman. She's a blogger and an Instagram star and she used to suck! We challenged her to pledge to refuse plastic straws for ever more, and she accepted! You can use the UYOC guide to search for cafes who don't serve plastic straws - helping us all to stop sucking! And if you know of a social media shining light who really sucks, let us know and we'll help them clean it up!
