Lightsview Ikigai Cafe


 


 

Residents of Lightsview will be happy to hear that Ikigai Coffee Shop and Conscious Eatery will be opening their doors to the public for the first time in June 2020. This cafe has set themselves some big goals to serve their community and the planet.

This unique eatery will focus on supporting local and other like-minded producers and suppliers - from the handmade ceramic plates they use to the fresh seasonal veg. This type of business model isn’t common, but they hope to inspire others, especially in these difficult economic times. The owners have spent a lot of time researching companies and brands that align with their vision for Ikigai, and are happy to report that many have agreed to support them with compostable or reusable packaging and other green alternatives.

How do you pronounce Ikigai?

Ikigai (pronounced i-key-guy-e) is a Japanese concept that translates to “a reason for being”. Within this 100 seater cafe, the owners are creating their “reason for being” by only doing the things they aspire to. This includes being Zero Waste - the team is committed to sending absolutely nothing to landfill. They want to create a space where customers can indulge 100% guilt-free, and leave knowing, without a doubt, that their actions won't cause any harm to the Environment.

No Waste Establishment

As this is a No Waste establishment, any organic scraps will be sorted into chook food, home compost, and commercial compost. Local gardeners will be pleased to hear that this premium green waste will be free for customers to collect. Get in contact with Ikigai if this is something you are interested in. Customers can also collect used coffee grinds, and the remainder will be kept to make soaps along with any milk wastage by Reviresco Natural Soap.

Reusable Containers

Customers will also be offered glass takeaway coffee cups and meal containers that will work on a return system. Customers can also choose to purchase their own Ikigai cups and containers - making things even simpler. Any purchased cup comes with a coffee on the house.
