How to become a responsible cafe

News Update 11 January 2017

Australians throw away over a billion takeaway cups every year and most end up in landfill. To help reduce this waste, the City is inviting local cafés and coffee shops to participate in Responsible Cafes, a national program that encourages them to offer a
discount to customers that bring their own reusable cup.

Participating cafés are provided with posters to let people know about the issue and advertise the discount. Cafés are also included on a national map of participating venues, and offered free promotion on social media.
