Opening Soon! North Vancouver’s First “No Single Cup” coffee shop – NOMAD
Single-use cups and non-recyclable plastics are a huge problem. They usually end up in landfills and often can’t be recycled because of the plastic coating that makes them leak-proof. Since the City of Vancouver’s 25 cents cup fee, more people are turning to reusable cups.
NOMAD COFFEE is striving to become North Vancouver’s “Zero-Waste” coffee shop by NOT offering Single-Use Cups. NOMAD COFFEE at 1415 Bewicke Ave, North Vancouver, opens on May 13th.
The newest coffee shop to come to the area will be taking a few measures to bring fresh energy to enjoying delicious drinks, both hot and cold, as well as baked goodies for people and dogs alike.
- Reusable cups and to-go cups are available for sale
- Customer cup rinsing station
- Use one of NOMAD’s takeaway glass mugs if you forget your own for a $2 deposit (returned when you bring the mug back)
- Electronic receipts only
- Recycle bins
This represents Owner, Annette Kim’s next step to impact the way we consume coffee and baked goods. Annette’s objective is for NOMAD COFFEE to become North Vancouver’s first “No Single Cup” coffee shop and to influence the coffee shop industry’s next generation. Annette’s long-term goal is to support CNV’s 100 Year Sustainability Vision for a zero-carbon future.
Annette has established the NOMAD mission statement:
“Challenge Today, Change Tomorrow”
