Covid & accepting Reusable Cups
Many incorrectly believe that the Food Safety Authority do not allow reusables because of COVID but this is untrue. What the Food Safety Authority do say is that it is up to each individual business to decide on their policy, details from their website can be found almost half way down here.
In terms of disposable crockery and cutlery they say
"It is not necessary to use disposable cups, cutlery or other disposable crockery. Washing crockery and cutlery in the dishwasher will kill any virus present. Proper hygiene practices must always be observed when handling crockery and cutlery. Using disposable crockery and cutlery can lead to a false sense of security and can mean staff are not as conscious of hygiene practices when handling these items."
All over the world, Cafes are accepting Reusable Cups from Conscious Consumers using a method that is safe for Barista, Consumer and the Planet and we call it Contactless Coffee.
The Department of Environment, Climate & Communication along with Professor Luke O'Neill, Immunologist in Trinity College Dublin have endorsed #ContactlessCoffee.
You will find his signature here along with Over 125 health experts defending the safety of reusables by Greenpeace.
So how does Contactless Coffee work? Have a look at some of the videos below...
