BUY THEM A COFFEE 

WANT TO HELP OUR FRONT LINE WORKERS? 

Responsible Cafes have teamed up with the AMAZING initiative @buythemacoffee which started only a few weeks ago to help Healthcare workers on the front line. They have so far raised a whopping $80,000 and are working with coffee vans and cafes near hospitals to keep staff caffeinated during this stressful time.

We are putting it out there to cafes in our network to see if you wanted to join this movement and run a simple pay it forward scheme to help keep your till ringing and supply coffee to our front line crews.

Hell yeah! I wanna join in…

It’s simple..

1. Sign up via this Google Form. That way we can put your cafe on our website and social media so people know they can participate.

2. Download the digital kit to help promote your involvement e.g posters, social media tile etc… so you can spread the word to your wonderful local community

3. Part of the kit is a tally sheet so you can keep track of how many coffees have been bought by your kind customers. When a key worker pops in for a coffee (doctor, nurse, teacher, daycare staff – the hero’s that are keeping the show on the road). Then shout them a coffee and feel the caffeine love spread! 

4. Share the good vibes on social media! Use the social media tiles in the kit or take an image of a customer who has paid it forward with the hashtag #responsiblecafes and #buythemacoffee

We call it the "Cup Hierarchy for Unprecedented Times". ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Use it as a reminder that the best option for the environment (and cheapest option for your cafe) is always a contactless pour, followed closely by a cup swap system and finally going topless if a single-use cup is truly the only option to caffeinate your customers. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Is your cafe doing a contactless pour??

You could even set up a clever "cup return capsule" where customers place their used cups directly onto a dish rack so you can do a contactless wash. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ To get started, check out the @huskeecup website and use our code ResponsibleCafes50 for 50% off your order of 10 or more cups. #NoExcuseForSingleUse⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Photo and cleverness credits to @rubylanewholefoods ✌️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #HuskeeCup #cupswap #keepitclean #environment #australia #covid19 #noexcuseforsingleuse #responsiblecafes #waronwaste #corona #contactless #coffee #coffeelovers #latte #contactlesscoffee #eco #earth

Raise your hand if being allowed to BYO mug to caf Raise your hand if being allowed to BYO mug to cafes again is your favourite part of 2020 so far 🙋🙋‍♂️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Yup, we thought so. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But no one likes a dirty mug. Let's keep our baristas and friends safe by washing reusables with hot water and soap in between uses. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ (PS: This has always been important because dirty cups are kinda gross, but now it's suuuuper important) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #KeepItClean keen beans 🧼⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #keepitclean #environment #australia #covid19 #noexcuseforsingleuse #responsiblecafes #waronwaste #corona #contactless #coffee #coffeelovers #latte #contactlesscoffee #eco #earth
