Irish Cafes That Give a Reusable Cup Discount

Cafes in Ireland that give a reusable cup discount when you bring your own cup.

One million disposable cups end up in landfill every minute. EVERY MINUTE! In Ireland, we are throwing away over 200 million takeaway cups each year! Insomnia Cafes alone use 15 million cups a year. Globally, we discard 500 billion disposable cups to landfill or incineration every year.

Disposable cups are usually not recyclable. To make these cups waterproof, the card is fused with polyethylene, a material that cannot be separated out again in a standard recycling mill.

We’ve really taken to reusing shopping bags and bags for life since the introduction of the tax on plastic bags, so why don’t we do the same with reusable cups? On the KeepCup website, there are some interesting facts and a comparison of disposable cups versus reusable cups.

Cafes can cut the use of disposable cups by offering a reusable cup discount to customers with reusable cups e.g. KeepCups. Many coffee shops around Ireland already do this.

The following is a list of cafes in Ireland that give a reusable cup discount when you bring your own cup.

However, this list is not complete and I need your to help to make the list even better. If you know of anywhere in Ireland that gives a reusable cup discount please let me know so I can add a list.

The reusable cup discount varies and ranges from 10 cents to 50 cents with one place offering €1 reusable cup discount.

If I haven’t added the reusable cup discount amount it’s because I haven’t heard back from the cafe, but if any of the cafes want to contact me to confirm an actual reusable cup discount amount I will add it beside the café’s name.

Also, all cafes listed will give a reusable cup discount regardless of what brand of reusable cup is used i.e. you don’t have to use a Butlers Chocolate branded reusable cup in Butlers, you can use any cup. However, some cafes won’t accept dirty cups for health and safety reasons, although I have found that most will rinse a cup out for you no problem. A few cafes in Ireland state that if a customers asks to use their own re-usable cup, the food safety responsibilities will be removed from the food business to the customer respective to the request.

    Hi Melanie, love this list! I was in Ebb & Flow, Clontarf today with my cup. No discount given and no mention of it on their price board or website, I didn’t ask for the discount, as I wasn’t sure if I was correct that they were included on your list.

      Hi Lesley, thanks so much for letting me know. I asked them and they said they don’t do a discount so I’ve removed them from the list. Maybe soon they’ll start offering one.
