This 'Rubbish Cafe' Lets Customers Pay With Plastic Trash

By Brian Spaen

Belgian-based Ecover is officially setting up The Rubbish Cafe, a temporary shop that lets customers "pay" for food and drinks with recyclable plastic waste. The unique shop is open for two days, May 3rd and 4th, at the Covent Garden in London.

The pop-up cafe features an upcycled interior created by designer Max McMurdo and a zero-waste, vegetarian menu created by sustainable chef Tom Hunt. As you’d expect, most of the food items will be vegan-friendly, including banana bread with fruit, grain bowls with kale, and a vegan wild rice bowl.
