Bury Me Standing

Bury Me Standing in Bathurst Street is a small cafe packed with passion. From a little takeaway window you can purchase biscuits, coffee, bagels, toasted sandwiches and delicious treats, all made on site. We had a chat with the lovely Alesha to find out what she has done to tackle plastic waste. Wow what a dynamo! She purchases compostable packaging for her customers, makes her own food and drinks (like soda) on site to minimise waste, uses natural dyes to brand her produce, takes any unsold food to Brightside farm sanctuary and to top it all off, she encourages customers to BYO packaging. 

"Once you start doing things better, it just snowballs and you look for more and more ways to reduce your impact" Alesha, Bury Me Standing".
