Okay, you’ve transitioned from using polystyrene to recyclable paper cups, great! But are you giving your customers the option to recycle or compost those cups?
If it’s still going to the landfill, your carbon footprint is not that reduced…not by much. You know patrons of coffee shops, largely, are environmentally conscience, so give us a reason to feel good for having patronized your shop!
We love cafes that have multiple bins with “real” samples of what goes in which bin, whether the compost, recycling, or trash bin. Customers leave the establishment with the comfort that their sorting made a difference.
As a consumer, what do you do when you find yourself in an establishment or attending an event and they don’t recycle? Share your thoughts on the subject with us in the comments section below, please.
