Ecover Rubbish Café

A two-day pop-up café experience with a twist

3 May 2018 – 4 May 2018 | Visit website

London’s first Rubbish Café opens on 3 May in Covent Garden. Brought to you by eco-cleaning pioneers Ecover who are waging a war against plastic pollution, the café is currency free. You can only enter and eat if you ‘pay’ with recyclable plastic rubbish!

In 2016, less than half of all plastic bottles were collected for recycling and only 7% of those were turned into new bottles. The Ecover Rubbish Café will serve a delicious zero-waste menu from eco-chef Tom Hunt and will be kitted out with a stylish upcycled décor inspired by eco-designer Max McMurdo. Learn how to #LiveClean while you lunch in sumptuously upcycled surroundings. The two-day pop-up will serve up inspiration and ideas for simple swaps we can all make to reduce, reuse and recycle plastic.

The Ecover Rubbish Cafe will be at 25 Long Acre, Covent Garden on 3 & 4 May, 8am – 4pm.
