Ecover's Rubbish Café takes plastic as payment

Ecover's Rubbish Café

Ecover is planning to have a positively rubbish time at its pop-up café in London this week. There will be food and drink available to buy, but they'll only accept plastic.

Recyclable plastic waste, that is. Bring along a drinks bottle, soup container or similar and choose from the Rubbish Café's zero-waste menu designed by chef Tom Hunt.

Taking place at 25 Long Acre, Covent Garden on Thursday May 3rd and Friday May 4th, the Rubbish Café is all part of Ecover's plan to become more eco-friendly by using 100 per cent recycled plastic in its bottles by 2020. Its new washing-up liquid bottle is already totally recycled and recyclable, it says, while the cleaning brand has also used Ocean Plastic and PlantPlastic packaging. It's trying to get more of its refill stations into mainstream supermarkets too.

The Rubbish Café has a decor inspired by upcycling expert Max McMurdo and will feature ideas for how we can reduce our plastic use. Pop in – and remember your pop bottle.
