ActivateEat.Drink supporting GREEN

Did you know that all ActivateEat.Drink outlets work hard to ensure they’re being as green as possible?

Over the past few years the cafés have taken on a more sustainable and socially aware response. This has involved introducing a number of significant initiatives across all outlets, including:

  • Free-range eggs
  • Certified sustainable seafood
  • Socially responsible and environmentally sustainable UTZ certified Organic coffee
  • BYO cup program (enabling less cups to be purchased and ultimately thrown away; reducing landfill)
  • Bio-degradable and sustainable packaging throughout, including cutlery and delivery packaging (requested of suppliers)
  • Plastic cups with low PTE (highly recyclable)
  • Bread that’s sourced from local bakeries, ensuring the carbon footprint remains low and local community businesses are supported
  • Introduction of the “Ground for Good” program, where customers can purchase the ground coffee for use in their home in cleaning, gardening, mulching, composting etc. (All money raised through this initiative are given to LandCare)
  • All lighting in the cafés is energy efficient
