Tiaki Promise

Tiaki : "care for people and place"

As an extension of our VISION to create a nationwide Cup Swap system for all New Zealanders to embrace, we also want to engage with Tourists, to ensure they can also be a part of our network and choose REUSE as part of their journey in Aotearoa.

The Tiaki Promise is a commitment to care for New Zealand.  Tourists are asked to make the commitment to care for New Zealand whilst they're here.  For more information visit https://tiakinewzealand.com/

To support The Tiaki Promise, we've developed our Tiaki Promise CupCycling Cup, which can be integrated in to our nationwide system.

Any cafe who wishes to implement our CupCycling Cup Swap system in their cafe and they're in a region which is not yet part of our Regional CupCycling Network; can have the wonderful Tiaki CupCycling Cups and join the CupCycling Family as an indepedent operator.  We have several cafes already on board in this manner and it's a fantastic way for us to support EVERY individual cafe owner who wishes to make sustainable REUSE change in their business.

Tourists can use their Tiaki Cup whilst traveling the length and breadth of Aotearoa and either leave their cup for REUSE as part of the CupCycling system, or take it home as a souvenir of their time in our beautiful land.


We're working with Tourist Industry Movers and Shakers, who are supporting our VISION to have the Tiaki Cups in circulation - promoting our aligned values of 'caring for people and place' and promoting New Zealand as a tourist destination.
