Local cafes and food businesses are making it easy for you to make the switch to reusable coffee cups and food containers.
Thanks to our many great local cafes, we’re able to fuel up on some of the best food and coffee in the world here in Taranaki.
But single-use coffee cups and dirty plastic containers aren’t recyclable, and compostable cups and containers need to go to a commercial composting facility to break down. An estimated three million coffee cups and lids sadly go to landfill in our region each year after a single use, along with a growing number of food containers. The best choice is to bring your own clean reusable cup and container whenever you order takeaway food or coffee. If you forget, just borrow a reusable cup or container in-store, or sit in to eat and drink.
Local cafes and takeaway shops are making waste-free takeaways easy, by offering these great choices for takeaway food and coffee.
Are you a café or food business keen to offer a discount when customers bring their own cup or container, or happy to accept BYO food containers? Help your customers enjoy your great coffee and food without the waste by joining the Bring It campaign.Get in touch to jump on board
