Hey hey, ho ho, plastic straws, cutlery, bags, cup Hey hey, ho ho, plastic straws, cutlery, bags, cups and containers have got to go! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You'll hear us chanting from the rooftops about how single-use cups are a silly and careless single-use item, but the reality is there are heaps of other single-use plastics we should be kicking to the curb. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
All of those single-use plastics items will NEVER decompose. That's right, plastic can only break down into smaller plastic molecules, which end up in the wilderness and in oceans. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So, is the slight convenience of plastics like shopping bags, takeout containers or disposable forks really worth the cost? 🤔⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Have you heard of a "Talky Table"? 💛It's our ow Have you heard of a "Talky Table"? 💛It's our own little community-bonding invention that's super easy and free to set up! Here are the details:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
A Talky Table is a community table in your cafe that you can dedicate to the social butterflies who want to meet their neighbours and have a chat while they sip their coffee. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Responsible Cafes can simply download the Talky Table poster from the portal, put it in a lovely frame and stick it on a table. Then sit back and relax while the community bonding begins. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Oh, and did we mention that it's part of the new responsible actions on our map?? 🤟🏿 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✨Important note: We recognize that a talky table might not be an option for your cafe at this time with the restrictions currently in place, but you can tuck the idea into your back pocket for a time when it is safe to mingle✨⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
