Again Again Reusable Cup Scheme – Choose to Reuse!

Again Again cupIt’s estimated that New Zealanders throw out about 295 million single-use cups each year, which equates to about four million in the Hastings district alone. In addition, these standard single-use coffee cups have a thin layer of plastic coating. Therefore, they can’t be recycled, and compostable versions are causing issues at local composter BioRich.

Using the Again Again cup, a reusable stainless steel cup, is a simple yet effective way to tackle this problem.

How does it work?

You pay a $3 deposit to borrow the cup from one of the cafés that’s part of the Again Again network. You can keep and reuse it, or swap it with a clean one in one of the participating cafés, or get a refund when you bring it back.

You can also borrow more than one cup, and bring all of them back at the same time when you remember. Easy!

And if my local café isn’t offering Again Again?

Maybe they haven’t heard about Again Again yet, but you can be the one to change that! Let them know that Hastings District Council is offering to subsidise cafés to sign up to the scheme by helping out with half of the initial trial costs. Find out more about the subsidy here.
