Exactly as the title states: you can be rewarded for using reusable items! Oh, and reduce your plastic consumption and benefit the environment – which is what were all about. Our last post was entirely straw focused, so we will give you a little break, and this time we will focus on… Coffee Cups! You might remember in a previous post I put up a photo of some cute reusable coffee cups (yes you can bet I ordered them online right after posting!). In case you for forgot, here they are!
Well, the fantastic news is that around Sydney there is a lot of cafes getting on board and offering a reusable cup discount!
This is where you SHOULD be buying your coffee!
Erskineville: Café Shenkin (50c off), Fleetwood Macchiato(50c off), The Hive Bar (20% off)
Surry Hills: BangBang Expresso (50c off), The Sandwich Shop (20c off), The Stables Café (5% off)
Alexandria: The Copper Mill (50c off)
Darlinghurst: The Royal (50c off)
Balmain: Bar Contessa (50c off)
Potts Point: Café DOV (50c off)
Ultimo: 80 Bay (20c off)
Newtown: Black Star Pastry (50c off)
Annandale: Lemonia (50c off)
Chippendale: Toby’s Estate (20c off)
Sydney: Town Hall Café (20c off)
Marrickville: (50c off)
That list is certainly not conclusive either! Support companies that support the environment and reuse – and save yourself some money while you’re at it!
Lets work it out…
If you bought a coffee every day of your working week, as many people do, and went to any of the places on that list that give a 50 cent discount each time, then in four weeks time you would have saved $10. That adds up. If you do that 10 months of the year, that’s over $100 that you’ve saved yourself with basically no effort!
Also, if your current local coffee shop doesn’t offer these discounts – it doesn’t hurt to suggest it to them. Everyone loves a discount, and a promotion like might even encourage more customers while being a socially responsible business move… PLUS – you win and so does the environment!
