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

It’s been brought to our attention that the QLD It’s been brought to our attention that the QLD government has updated their Stage 3 rules for hospitality to ban keep cups even when a contactless pour method is used. What the heck @qldgov??? We are confused and saddened by this news as 100’s of scientists have come forth to urge the continued use of reusables during this time and there are a number of safe ways to do a no-contact transaction with reusables. Are you also saddened by this policy?? Has your state also banned reusables in the last few weeks? #takeawaythrowaways #bansingleuseplastic
Since we're nearing the end of #PlasticFreeJuly (A Since we're nearing the end of #PlasticFreeJuly (AKA the best month of the whole year), let's reflect on some actions that will encourage reduce & reuse behaviours after it's over. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As we all probably know by now, DITCHING single-use all together is the best way to stop contributing to landfills. If your cafe isn't quite ready to break up with single-use yet, make an effort to advertise reuse to your customers by creating a mug library, implementing a cup swap system like @huskeecup, posting a sign to encourage customers to bring their reusables, implementing a BYO reusable loyalty card, and starting to charge for single-use items to discourage their use. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It's up to each of us to cancel this normalized single-use mindset, so let's get cracking!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #plasticfree #reusable #keepitclean #environment #australia #covid19 #noexcuseforsingleuse #responsiblecafes #waronwaste #contactlesspour #coffee #contactlesscoffee #eco #byoCup #noexcuseforsingleuse
