Cutting out waste: A Midlands Cafe and Roastery is taking serious action.

Thursday, 10 May, 2018

Steampunk Coffee in the KZN, Midlands is taking some extreme measures to reduce their waste.

Michael Goddard, the man behind the business, explains their philosophy best himself.

When Steampunk started they used only take away cups so they've taken a full 180 with this decision. We have to give the team kudos. This philosophy will not be for everyone, but you might have noticed that we are very much in favour of cutting out as much single use as possible, so well done Team Steampunk! They are also trying to reduce using bags for their coffee beans too, using glass jars for retail and plastic buckets for their wholesale customers.

You can make a difference one cup at a time. Already all packaging companies have had to look into more eco friendly options or look into special recycling plants for normal take-away cups. Every bit helps. We've got to change the way we think about single use!
