Café’s great idea for reducing plastic waste goes viral

Emu Point Café in Albany, Western Australia, put a great idea to reduce use of plastic-lined takeaway cups into action. Customers were invited to donate unwanted coffee mugs to the café for those who forgot their own reusable mugs. Cups could then be returned next visit.

This idea went viral when Melissa Joan Hart, star of Sabrina The Teenage Witch, shared a photo of their exchange program on Instagram.

Kate Marwick, Owner of the Emu Point Café said they implemented the program in the hope of a brighter and cleaner future. ‘We hope this simple environmental movement will be adopted all around Australia and the world,’ Ms Marwick said.

Perhaps more cafés and coffee drinkers around the country will adopt this wonderful idea in Plastic Free July. To read more check out the full article here..
