Where to BYO coffee cup in Darwin
Updated: Oct 21, 2018
Taking your own coffee cup to a cafe has never been easier since ABC's War on Waste series. It kicked cafes and the public into gear, with many getting on board with the waste-free movement. In fact, you'd probably have a hard time finding a cafe that doesn't support the use of a BYO cup.
Why are take-away cups so bad?
They’re made of cardboard, so they’ve got to be recyclable, right? Unfortunately not! Disposable coffee cups are lined with a protective plastic film that stops liquid from seeping through, so they can’t simply be recycled along with paper and cardboard. So, straight to landfill.
Where to get your fix
Here’s a round-up of cafes that have a commitment to waste reduction by selling, accepting or incentivising the use of keep cups or coffee mugs. Choose these cafes next time you need a coffee fix and ask anyone not yet following this philosophy to get on board!
