If you love all that bubble tea goodness, but could not bear creating more trash, here is some good news for you:
The Alley is now encouraging customers to bring their own tumblers when ordering from their stores!
"In conjunction with protecting and saving our planet, customers can bring their own reusable cup or thermos," the statement posted on Sunday, 30 June, read.
The Taiwanese bubble tea chain added that the new policy would come into effect from 1 July.
The Alley also recommends using tumblers that can fit a volume of at least 500ml
500ml is for a M-sized drink, while L-sized drinks need a tumbler that is at least 700ml.
While most drinks can be packed in one's own tumbler, an exception applies to The Alley's Aurora series which is already pre-packed and sold in its own bottles.
Additionally, customers who purchase and use The Alley's reusable tumbler at their stores enjoy extra perks :p
