Everyday changemakers – your actions are powerful
You have an important role to play in continuing the reuse revolution and helping to rid the world of unnecessary, problematic single-use waste.
The first part is easy: clean your cup thoroughly and return to your daily coffee routine, where you can do so safely.
Talking to your local café
It’s important to vote with your feet and support the cafes that facilitate reuse. If they won’t take your KeepCup, ask if they can reduce waste by decanting your coffee from an in-house ceramic vessel to your reusable (always hold onto your lid).
How can we help?
If you need more support on talking your networks, drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll be happy to dive into more detail.
We recommend cafes take the following simple steps to incorporate reuse:
- Follow local food safety directives, wash your hands regularly with soap and water.
- Accept only clean and dry KeepCups from customers and refuse any that are visibly dirty.
- Ask your customers to keep hold of their lid.
Dosing from a reusable café cup to KeepCup or washing reusables prior to filling are examples of other short term measures some cafes have chosen to implement.
Where to from here
We’ve seen hopeful signs from around the world that our pre-covid-19 freedoms will be returning in the not-too-distant future. However, in the rush to return to normal, let’s make sure we're moving forward towards a world without single-use waste.
