It’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.
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!
