how to get your cafe to join responsible cafes?

As a conscious consumer it is up to you where you buy your morning brew. So why not use the power of your dollar to create positive change and approach your cafe to join Responsible Cafes – if they are not already!  

We have created a simple guide to help you approach your local cafe (click on the image to download), but here are some handy tips to get you thinking:

  • Find a quiet time to talk to the cafe owner or barista – maybe not during the morning coffee rush! 
  • You can print off our guides here to help with some useful facts about the program. A good one to mention is there are already 5000 cafes across Australia who are already on board! 
  • Try and approach the subject with a positive upbeat manner – no one likes a naggy Nora! 

We are always looking for ways to improve our relationships with cafes, to help them reduce their single use plastic, so please contact us if you have any feedback from your experience. 

HOW DOES YOUR CAFE JOIN? 

It is super simple to get your cafe to join – and it is FREE! All they need to do it visit “Register your Cafe’ in the menu, set up a free account, fill in all the information about their cafe and voila! They are on the map, ready for Keen Beans such as yourselves to search for and share the responsible love. 

We have created a handy little guide for you to share with cafes if you want to tell them how and why to join. Click on the image to download. 

IS YOUR CAFE ALREADY RESPONSIBLE? 

We are always contacted by cafes and consumers keen to find out what more they can do to fight the war on waste. In response we have created a handy guide, looking beyond throw away cups, aimed at giving more information about other ways cafes can reduce waste from composting to ditching straws and takeaway containers. 

So, if you know a cafe that you think would be interested in taking more action to reduce waste then feel free to download, print off and hand out this great guide!

After reading our compost content this week, have After reading our compost content this week, have you decided to start composting so that your cafe, customers and staff can feel ah-mazing about your eco friendly actions?? Good on you!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Here are 5 steps to get your composting journey started!

Not all biodegradable cups are created equal ❌ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "Compostable" cups and containers may sound eco-friendly, but industrial-grade compostable containers do not decompose in traditional backyard composts. They have to be sent to industrial composting sites where high temperatures and specific conditions are used to break the materials down. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Some municipalities in Aus offer kerbside compost collection to take your organics to one of the country's 150 facilities, HOWEVER whether compostable plastics and papers are accepted will depend on your municipalities rules. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When "compostable" cups end up in nature, they don't break down like food scraps would and ultimately contribute to our plastic crisis.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you're a keen bean, take 5 minutes to research the composting regulations in your municipality to see what compostables go in the green lid bin, and what goes in the red one. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #plasticfree #reusable #keepitclean #environment #australia #compost #noexcuseforsingleuse #responsiblecafes #waronwaste #contactlesspour #coffee #contactlesscoffee #eco #byoCup #noexcuseforsingleuse
