- use your own cup

UYOC.CO.NZ is an online café guide. It stands for Use Your Own Cup and it is pronounced [you-yok] or any way you want to say it!

It represents cafes that are committed minimising their environmental impact by welcoming clients to use their own cups when they take out. Every cafe listed will pour a brew into any vessel clients bring them.

Many of the cafes have gone further still and have stopped serving plastic straws, will refill water flasks for no charge or compost food waste. You can see who is doing what at UYOC.


It also work as a philanthropic, social enterprise, stepping in to connect folks who can help each other do good, and stepping up to fund local projects and initiatives.
