🌿 Knee jerk giveaway 🌿 LIKE this ugly pic (show insta that we care about content not just bikinis and sunsets - although they work too), tag a uyoc cafe (link in bio to find some near you), I’ll send one of you proactive humans a reusable cup (you choose what kind, we’ll work out what’s best for you together?) and I’ll shout you a $50 voucher to spend filling it with coffee at one of the cafes you tag 🌿 Tag some mates who still use throwaways and fck it, I’ll send them a cup too. Because I’m sooooo over this shit but I absolutely believe that you and me, we can change it. Really, really think it.

🌿 They stink for making it, someone stinks for choosing to use it, someone else stinks for dropping it out there car window, and I stink for not picking it up (kidding. I do kinda stink, but I did pick it up)🌿 #stopstinking
