Bring in your own coffee cup to get discount and stop litter

THE folks at Leche Cafe Yamba are doing their part to save the environment - one coffee cup at a time.

Customers receive 50c off a coffee when they bring their own cup, in a bid to get more people thinking about where their disposable cups go once they have been drained of their caffeinated goodness.

Studies show Aussies throw away 1 billion coffee cups and lids each year. With many of us going back for two or three cups a day, you can see how it adds up so quickly.

Leche Cafe co-owner Zac Roberts said the initiative was part of the Responsible Cafe movement and encouraged everyone to get on board.

"Most people throw out their cups, not thinking anything of it, so this way they can get a reward for bringing in their own," Mr Roberts said.

"But it's a reward not only for themselves, but for the environment and our future."

Mr Roberts encouraged other businesses to sign up to Responsible Cafes so together we could make a real difference.
