GIVE 10% PARTNERSHIP
Partnership and collaboration are key to tiny business success - especially in tough times like these. It's cash flow that allows us to continue to create, support staff and participate and add flavor to local communities. Our vision is simple - it's a promise. Though Cypress promises to give 10% of our profits to conservation regardless of circumstance, we aim to encourage cafes and coffee shops to consider the following:
Shops that carry our glass straws offer 10% off drink purchases (if margins allow) when customers bring their Cypress straw back in and show the barista. The initial purchase of a glass straw in a coffee shop will not only increase average order value, which helps satisfy immediate cash needs as coffee shops work to reopen after a long struggle of Covid-19 related slow downs, but it also encourages returning customers. Also, customers don't have to wait to recognize savings until they buy 10 drinks to get a free drink like some of those punch card programs.
Slowing down with offering, or stop offering completely, plastic disposable straws with drink purchases (unless someone specifically requests one)
Cypress offers our lifetime guarantee on any customer's straw that breaks - if a coffee shop customer's Cypress straw breaks, we'll replace it
