An open source cafe sustainability directory

cafeculture.org is an independent, open source effort to catalog sustainable (and not so sustainable) cafes and restaurants to change the culture of both the service industry and public » Learn More

We seek to promote good, ease change, and aggressively discourage waste to increase mindfulness of sustainability. When has a top down revolution ever worked? Change starts with you.

To be considered sustainable, a cafe must:

  1) Be part of one, but preferably more, reusable cup networks.
      saving businesses more than ~$1500 a month (assuming 20 regulars)

  2) Not use plastic through the course of business.
      because it never biodegrades

  3) Incentivise bringing reusable cups.
      encouraging more people to do so
