Responsible cafe guide

A new cafe guide is helping locals and travellers find their way around New Zealand, keeping this land beautiful as they go. The uyoc.co.nz guide will show you cafes, bars and restaurants near you who welcome you to Use You Own Cup when you don’t have time to stay. You can search for cafes who will discount you when you use a keep cup, for cafes who will loan you a cup to drop back at another UYOC cafe, who can sell you a reusable for your travels or who don’t use disposable cups at all - so you can choose to support businesses who are reducing their environmental footprint! The guide also shows cafes who will refill water flasks, even for non paying customers, to reduce any need to purchase bottles water. Need plant based options? Coffee grounds for your garden? Somewhere who will love your dog? Somewhere who has ‘no thanks’ to serving plastic straws? UYOC cafe guide, who recently won the Keep New Zealand Beautiful Sustainable Business Project of the year, is a one stop shop to find ethical and delicious Kiwi cafes. Responsible travel and great coffee!
