5 YEAR GOAL
Remove the need to make & landfill 10 million bottles & cans
To eliminate packaging waste & make beverage consumption net zero. In addition to avoiding the waste (40% of a beer’s footprint) we plant a tree for every keg enjoyed. We’re on this mission because our taste buds matter, our wallets matter, we love our locals and most importantly, we want our kids to have a bright future living on a happy planet.
KegSwappa is a vacation inspiration, the brainchild of two Northern Beaches Dads (Ashley & Johnny) who met on the road while touring around Australia. “The Brew Tour”, as their wives called it, involved many brewery stops because the guys wanted to support the locals and because they love beer, who would have guessed! On one of their late-night sampling/solve the world rambling sessions, they talked about how much waste there is with packaged beer. In the morning the pile of empties kept the topic front of mind and eventually, after a few more beer appreciation sessions, KegSwappa was born.
BELIEF & VALUES
Beer is obviously critical to survival and given that mother earth is the only planet we know of that has beer, we need to treasure her.
When it comes to our values it’s what you’d expect, i.e. no bullshit, help as much as we can, have fun, continuously improve and do our best to leave only footprints.
