Bun Coffee

Bun Coffee is aiming to support Byron’s youth, creativity and empowerment by selling hessian coffee sacks. ‘Every $2 donation for a sack goes directly to the Byron Youth Service to help fund the programs and facilities that support and empower Byron’s young people, because young people matter,’ says Bun’s Peta McCallum. ‘We have seen some amazing projects emerge from the coffee sacks such as shopping bags, wall art, chair covers, pencil cases, cushions, aprons and Christmas stockings.’

Visit Bun Coffee Roastery Unit 15–17, 1A Banksia Drive, Byron Bay, to fuel your creativity by repurposing a hessian coffee sack.


Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
