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!


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!  


Waste education POSTER, GUIDES & OTHER resources

Over the years we have created a range of FREE downloadable tools for cafes and ‘Keen Beans’ to help spread the reusable word and educate the community on single use plastic. Cafes can download resources from their cafe portal. Keen Beans can download posters and resources below. 


Connect with our community of cafes and Keen Beans through a strategic parnership.


Help support us by buying a responsible product in our shop.
