This Melbourne Café Has Vowed To Never Use Paper Cups

Handsome Her owner Alex O’Brien has vowed to not to use paper cups in their Brunswick café, ever.

“I’m a big greenie, and when I go places and forget my KeepCup I’m always dismayed to get a takeaway cup,” she told Broadsheet. “I usually try to either sit in or I just miss out. With my cafe I thought, what can we do differently? I really didn’t want to use disposal cups because of how horribly wasteful they are.”

Customers are encouraged to sit down or drink their coffee at the stand-up espresso bar – for a discount.

But for those who need to run, the café has a giant wall of donated mugs – displayed on an “emergency mug wall”.

Yep – you’ll get a mug-to-go.

“We’re trying to encourage people to just slow down and change the whole culture around how we consume coffee.”

Handsome Her opens in three weeks at 206 Sydney Road in Brunswick.
