Dave & Sunray of Vitality Organics πŸŒΏ 322 Maunganui Rd, Mount Maunganui, Tauranga 3116 πŸŒΏπŸŒ "For us, it only makes sense to accept- and encourage, reusables. We offer a 50 cent discount on all coffees, smoothies, and smoothie bowls if you BYO. We will not allow fear to bypass our responsibility as business owners to act in a sustainable manner wherever possible. A global pandemic doesn’t change the fact that we have become far too sensitised and complacent in disposable culture. Especially as current trade measures mean that NZ has nowhere to outsource its waste. The problem isn’t going away. Bringing your own special vessel not only warms the heart, but makes for a damn fine drinking experience.“ -Rachel (SunRay)

Getting Ready

Make sure everyone in the bubble has a 'keep cup' for if and when they go get a take out brew? Cost nothing: just time and thought and some stuff we had in the house...Reusables are the new normal, and if they are repurposed reusables they doing twice the job...

Good things happening at the University of Waikato β˜•πŸŒπŸŒΏ "Waste audits have shown that thousands of takeaway coffee cups go to landfill each week, and a recent audit highlighted 10kg’s of plastic bottles in the Village Green, just in one day.⁠" ~ So? They are doing something about it!

Going Cup Less

Dear NZ Hospo 🌻 Click HERE for free guides and signs 🌻 More and more cafes are doing it. With prior notice, good signage and solutions that are as easy as the existing system, the transition is easy. Search the UYO guide for cafes who have made the move - I can guarantee they will all be keen to share their learning curves, and we are here to help you, support you, praise you and make it work. It just makes sense - economically, ethically, environmentally. And it doesnt have to involve great expense and buy in to complicated cup loan systems. Just work with your customers and make it the new normal. It's happening. You're not alone.
