Starbucks doing something right
I wouldn't normally choose to give them my custom, as our town centre has many good independent cafes to choose from, but I was accompanied by an aged parent who can't walk far, and Starbucks happened to be nearest. Just inside the door was a basket on a stand, full of big sealed packages, with a sign: "Spent coffee grounds for your garden." If one Starbucks is doing it, presumably others are. Other cafes please copy, only with plastic-free packaging if possible. But I'll carry on taking my own plastic box to a cafe nearer home.
