Share This Post

Cafe Collective is a group of cafes in Siem Reap that have begun working together to help support a better future for the industry.  The Little Red Fox EspressoSister Srey CafeBang Bang Bakery-CafeBrother Bong Cafe & Footprint Cafes have been spending time together and have now launched their first initiative.

Inspired by the Plastic Free Cambodia movement, the Collective is looking to bring awareness of how long single use plastic takeaway coffee options exist on our beautiful planet.

This initiative kicked off August 1st and includes the following:
1) A surcharge on any takeaway coffee of 1000 Riel
2) A discount on takeaway when you have your own take away utensil of 1000 riel
3) Both of the above

So far, the response has been largely positive, and the Collective has grown to include other cafes such as CRANE Siem ReapThe Missing Socks Laundry CafeBayon Pastry School Coffee ShopThe Glasshouse Deli. Patisserie at Park Hyatt Siem Reap & New Leaf.

What do you think?  Would you be willing to pay a little extra for take-away packaging, or happy to receive a discount for bringing your own cup?
