The City of Stirling has supported the Responsible Cafes Program. The program aims to connect cafes to environmentally conscious consumers and help reduce the waste generated by takeaway cups and lids. Participating cafes offer their customers a discount or incentive to bring their own reusable takeaway cup and are then promoted by the Responsible Cafes Program and the City of Stirling. Visit the Responsible Cafes website  for more information.
