HOW DO WE APPROACH

WASTE EDUCATION?

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!  

 

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.

Looking to find a Responsible Cafe?

We’re seeing a lot more of this around. Coffee c We’re seeing a lot more of this around. Coffee cups are one of the biggest littered items in Australia. With the rise of disposables due to #covid_19 many people have been forced to put their reusables in the kitchen cupboard until more cafes accept them. If you can’t find a local cafe that accepts your own cup then remember you can always ask for no plastic lid and #gotopless ☕️ @keepaustraliabeautiful

Along with everything else, our reuse world has been turned upside down in 2020 and we are all taking a well deserved (long) tea break 🫖.

With Christmas in a few days we celebrate reuse and encourage you to think twice about consumption and shopping hysteria - instead we encourage ♻️ circular alternatives. ⁠⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⁠⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Rent, repair and reuse! Consume if you want to, but make sure it does not require new resources from mother earth 🙏⁠⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⁠⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Explained by the Ellen McArthur Foundation: "A circular economy is based on the principles of designing out waste and pollution, keeping products and materials in use, and regenerating natural systems."⁠ 🌍⁠⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

It’s easy as 1, 2, 3 ☕️☕️☕️! Live ar It’s easy as 1, 2, 3 ☕️☕️☕️! Live around the corner from your coffee shop? Then just grab a CLEAN mug by a good old fashioned handle and ask for a #contactless pour. The best thing about using a mug with a handle is you don’t need to waste a silly carry tray as you can easily carry three! Enjoy your Saturday and stay safe keen beans 💚🙏🏽💚
