As keen coffee advocates, it’s not unusual to spot us with a takeaway latte in our hands. We’re girls on the go and convenience is king, after all. But after learning that Australians consume 50,000 takeaway coffees every 30 minutes (thanks to the ABC’s War on Waste), with a majority going into landfill, we went straight to the cupboard to dust off those underused Keep Cups.

Our seemingly innocent consumption of coffee in disposable cups has a huge impact on the environment, and while bringing-your-own is not going to necessarily save the planet, every bit you do to reduce waste earns you a gold star. OR, in this case, a discount at your favourite cafe. Like these joints:

If your business offers a Keep Cup discount or has a sustainable model then drop us a line.

PS…
Don’t forget about other sustainable businesses based in Adelaide, like Rite Price Grocery Clearance Stores, who sell discounted but good-quality food thrown away by manufacturers, because of excess stock, discontinued lines and cancelled supermarket orders. And then there are sustainable salons like MABE, who recycle up to 95% of their waste including chemicals, hair and foil. We love these Adelaide businesses kicking waste’s butt.
