Bring one (reusable coffee cup), get one tree
Every day, 2.25 billion takeaway cups of coffee are consumed around the world. The good news? It’s so easy to change by remembering to bring a reusable cup. We started Bring one, get one tree in Perth's western suburbs to encourage people to bring a reusable cup for their takeaway coffee. It's a double bonus for the environment. Not only will you save a cup and lid from being thrown 'away' (most end up in landfill) but you will be helping to revegetate the local environment!
For every takeaway coffee sold in a reusable cup at a participating café during July we'll plant a local native plant in the region...actually, our partners from the Friends of Mosman Park Bushland, Cottesloe Coastcare, Friends of Lake Claremont and the City of Subiaco will do it for you! This initiative was developed after we won the Waste Authority of WA's Infinity Award.

**We are planning on running the initiative again in 2016 in Perth's western suburbs, email us if you want to join!
While this project only funds trees for cafés in the WMRC region of Perth, Western Australia each July it is available for use by other organisations who want to run the initiative and provide the tree! The initiative was run by the Vic. Park Collective in Perth, Western Australia and also the Non-Plastic Maori in New Zealand. Resources for use in the WMRC are shared below for download. For graphics to use in other geographical areas please contact us by email and we'd love to chat! We also highly recommend the reusable cup initiative Responsible Cafes, its free for any cafe to participate so check it out now.
