Earth Market Café

“We are excited to announce that our goal is to eventually become a plastic free cafe! Although this takes time, we are beginning with minimising our plastic usage such as straws and bags. Through this process we encourage our customers to bring their own containers and coffee cups for takeaway meals, salads and drinks. This will help assist us in doing our part in reducing plastic wastage.
For those who bring in their own reusable containers, along with our coffee cups, there will be a discount on purchases!”

List other businesses or organisations

This page is for businesses and organisations who want to let Gippslanders and visitors to the region know that they support plastic free and zero waste living through their products and services.

The business or organisation does not need to be all zero waste or plastic free. For example, the business might be a cafe that accepts reusable containers or refuses disposable straws, or a store that sells some products in bulk allowing customers to use their own bags or jars.

If you want to list a business, please leave the business details in the comments below or email me (Tammy) at Thank you.

    1. Hi Dianne, It’s not a dumb question, I didn’t know what it was a few years ago. Kombucha is sugary tea that’s been fermented. It’s a bubbly drink that has a tang. It can be a bit like a cider but if brewed for a long time becomes vinegar. You can buy it in a bottle like soft drink in some stores or you can buy it on tap from health food stores, otherwise you could make it yourself. To make it you need to get some starter tea and a SCOBY and mix that with a new batch of sugary tea. I got my starter tea and SCOBY from Leongatha health food store. You could also find someone who makes it because they always have SCOBYs to give away. Hope that helps.
