Recognising cafes that genuinely care for our environment
Cafes have become one of the most popular places in Australia for people to purchase food and drink and meet in a social setting. As an industry, over 1-billion single use coffee cups are used annually (with the majority going to landfill) and per capita we consume nearly 2kg of coffee beans each year.
There is so much more that our cafes and customers can do to reduce their impact on this earth, from saying ‘no’ to single use coffee cups, purchasing rainforest alliance coffee beans, to buying local produce and supporting local business, and reducing energy use.
The Third Fuse Project says ‘thank you’ to the following South Australian cafes that genuinely care for our environment. It’s not just what they say; it’s also what they do to reduce their footprint on this earth, even if it’s at the expense of customer convenience.
