Partnering with Plastic Free NT to implement sustainable initiatives this July

This graphic explains the concept of a mug library. There are arrows showing the cycle of borrow, use, return in a circle around a mug. Text reads 'we're trying our best to phase out single-use packaging.'

From Monday 10 July, the Cafe will spend 3 weeks heavily promoting reusables and plastic-free options for enjoying coffee. Rewarding customers who bring their own cup with a 50c discount, the Cafe is advocating for the environment while compensating customers for their sustainable choices.

On Monday the Cafe also launched Darwin’s first mug library, a concept that allows customers to borrow, use, and return a ceramic mug in place of a typical disposable takeaway cup. This concept is particularly fitting for over 250 staff who work on site at Harry’s Place; these regular customers can quickly and easily return mugs into the library.

To celebrate the conclusion of this 3-week promotion, we are hosting a BYO Cup Day on Thursday 27 July. On this date we will be aiming for reusables on 100% of our coffee sales, and we’ll be rewarding customers with a sweet treat to thank them for their considered actions towards reducing single-use waste.

We look forward to ongoing collaborations with Plastic Free NT as we continue to phase out single-use packaging.
