Swap plastic for food at London’s vegetarian ‘rubbish cafe’

Written by

Here’s one for the eco-warriors.

On Thursday May 3 and Friday May 4, you can trade a piece of recyclable plastic for lunch and coffee at London’s pop-up ‘rubbish cafe’ in Covent Garden.

The cafe’s zero-waste menu will have speciality coffee from the caffeine experts at Over Under, and a food menu by sustainable chef Tom Hunt. He’ll be making banana bread with wonky fruit, grain bowls with kale and cranberries and a vegan wild-rice bowl with cauliflower and coconut, among other meat-free options.

If you really don’t have any plastic, you can make a pledge to recycle and swap that for a feed instead. But we know you've got some. Do it for the environment (and the grain bowls).

The Ecover Rubbish Café is at 25 Long Acre, WC2E 9LY. It’s open from 8am to 4pm on Thursday May 3 and Friday May 4.

Here’s our pick of London’s best vegetarian restaurants.
