Warwick cafes to drink outside the box

AS WARWICK continues to dry up, cafe owners around the region have been left to think outside the box when it comes to cutting down on water use.

Coffee Club’s manager Daniel Redgwell recently made the decision to stop putting out table water to cut back.

“We were wasting over 300L a day, on our quietest days,” he said.

“People just don’t realise the amount they’re using.

“They may have a glass, maybe two, and we have to wash the bottle and refill it. That all takes water.”

Mr Redgwell said he had only seen positive feedback from the move.

“Most people never really ask anyway, and when we explain it to those from out of town, they’re really understanding and go ‘Oh yeah, of course!,” he said.

From changing how they rinsed plates to the table water, Mr Redgwell said it was those small strokes of ingenuity that would help.

“I think we all just take things for granted,” he said.

“But it’s the little things.”
