Australians toss 2.7 million coffee cups into landfill every day. And takeaway cups are now the number one contributor of waste after plastic bottles. Bondi cafés are making a stand. For one week in July, Bondi will become the first council locality in the world to go 100% takeaway coffee cup-free, with the aim of creating a Guinness World Record.
During BYO Cup Week, from 3-11 July, cafés will ditch single-use cups and serve their coffee three ways all week: using “keep-cups” customers bring from home, a mug library provided by the café, or encouraging people to take a moment and drink their coffee in-café. There are tips and fact sheets available on https://responsiblecafes.org/byobondi
