OUR SERVICES

 

We approach waste education through THE

FOLLOWING FOUR CHANNELS

COMMUNITY engagement

The Responsible Cafes team is often seen out in the community educating people on the perils of single use plastic. Our goal is to always keep the messaging positive and fun. By interacting with the community with thought provoking activities we can capture people’s attention and get them thinking about their relationship with single use plastic… not just coffee cups!

If you would like one our team running workshops, engaging with your community with our interactive wheelie bin or cup at one of your events then get in touch.

 

Digital CAMPAIGNS AND communications

We are always looking at ways to cut through the clutter and get our single use message across through social media campaigns and videos that can be shared. The video example below if of a video we made to demonstrate our Better Cup Guide which was aimed at providing you with the knowledge you need to become a (c)upstanding citizen, and make a choice that’s good for your brew and our planet too!

INITIATIVES AND WORKSHOPS

 You have probably guessed by now that we are a bunch of passionate waste educators! We are constantly thinking up new ways to get the reuse message out these. For instance our ‘Jar Wars’ kits and workshops where you can make your own cup out of an old jam jar and silicone bands. #NO EXCUSE FOR REUSE now!

Get in touch if you would like us to run a jar wars workshop for you. Or you can buy a kit from our shop and DIY!

Thanks to you amazing Keen Beans across the world Thanks to you amazing Keen Beans across the world who all agree it is time to #revivereuse. It warms our cotton socks to know you all care enough to sign! If you missed it from last week here is the lowdown. 💚⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We need your help to #revivereuse ♻️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Are reusable coffee cups safe in the times of COVID? YES. In fact, they're SO safe that 125 scientists across the globe have signed a statement which reads: "It is clear that reusable systems can be used safely by employing basic hygiene." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Want to see reusable coffee cups back in action? Here's how you can help:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 1. Let's work together this @plasticfreejuly to ask the large coffee chains to reconsider their position and bring back our beloved reusables in the hope that others will follow. You can help by signing our @change.org petition to show that the public are keen to reuse their clean cups. Link to petition in bio. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 2. Tag your favourite waste warrior in the comments below and ask them to sign the petition too! Include #revivereuse⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 3. Read more about this issue and the full statement from scientists in our recent blog. Link in Bio. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Here is the quick down-low from those in the know: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ *Rona is transmitted mainly by droplets in the air, NOT by surfaces. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ *Disposables present the same surface transmission risks as reusables. In other words, they are not magically free from germs. (shocking, we know)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ * Reusables can be WASHED (bacteria-fighting soap is a wonderful thing, folks - let's use it).⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Stay tuned for more info on the safety of reusables! ☕️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #responsiblecafes #reusable #keepitclean #environment #australia #covid19 #noexcuseforsingleuse #responsiblecafes #waronwaste #corona #contactlesspour #coffee #latte #contactlesscoffee #eco #earth #byoCup #noexcuseforsingleuse @plasticfreejuly
