Let's be honest. Using a KeepCup every day for your daily caffeine fix will not save the planet. But it’s a start.

In Australia, we throw away more than 1 billion disposable cups every year, and about 50,000 cups every 30 minutes. A huge percentage of those cups are unrecyclable.

According to KeepCup, more than 5 million people are now using refillable options – saving an estimated 3.5 billion disposable cups from landfill.

Marrickville cafe Two Chaps is committed to breaking the cycle of waste. It offers customers 50 cents off if they bring their own cup, and also sells reusable cups in-store. About 15 per cent of its customers use their own every day, and a few neighbours even bring in their own plates if they want take away.

“As a community-based cafe, we serve the same people every single day,” says co-owner Piero Pignatti Morano. “Sustainability is also really important to us, so offering this discount is a no-brainer.” In addition to the price incentive, Two Chaps composts 100 per cent of its food waste at the local primary school.
