Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Return! You spoke, and we listened. Customers and Tipple team members alike have asked for a bag return scheme, and now it’s finally happening.

Starting from November 2019, you can now return your Tipple bags to be used, reused, and used again.

Choose to keep or return your bag

If you love your Tipple bags, don’t worry – they’re still yours to keep if you wish! We know a lot of our customers love their Tipple bags, and that makes us really happy! Made with care from fully recyclable Polypropylene (PP) (a type 5 plastic), they’re built to last, and are great for carrying shopping, storing things around the house, and many other uses (one of our Tipple team uses theirs to store wetsuits post-surfing!).

But for many of us, there’s no use for extra bags around the house. Instead, stray plastic bags just seem to multiply in the kitchen cupboard. Well, we’re doing something about that.

How our bag return scheme works ♷

It’s super simple, really – the way every good thing should be.

You:

“Hey I’d like to return this bag.”

Us:

“Cool.”

To return your bag, simply let our driver know that you’d like to return the bag you just received, or any old bags you’ve held onto from previous orders. That’s it. They’re happy to bring it back to the store to be used again for the next order!

But first, some bag return ground rules!

We only ask that the bags you return are clean and intact so that the next Tippler receives a bag that’s as good as new, too. If you’ve got Tipple bags around the house that aren’t reusable (think broken handle, scratched or torn plastic, etc), but that are still clean, they can still be recycled through Woolies and other soft plastic recycling schemes. The Tipple bag even makes a pretty good soft-plastics carry bag.

Help us improve!

Trialling our return scheme, we would love your input and thoughts to make it better for you, us, and the planet. If you’ve got thoughts, simply reach out to us through Facebook or Instagram, through our website, or at support@tipple.com.au.

Thanks,
The whole Tipple team

Your Guide to Hosting an Adult Sleepover For Your Friends

Who doesn’t feel nostalgic for childhood sometimes?

Childhood was a wonderful responsibility-free time when hanging out was mostly about spending time with your friends. What activity you did wasn’t as important. Well, sleepovers were the epitome of childhood, and as such, hosting one is the easiest way to get transported back into that pre-adult life before responsibilities and bills, careers, and such. But an adult sleepover can have alcohol too, so it’s actually heaps better. Here’s how you make it a great one!

Be careful about who you invite

It’s so so easy to get loose in the invitation phase and invite a few people who might change the mood you’re trying to set for the night. Perhaps your sleepover plans are at the top of your mind when you bump into an acquaintance at a cafe, and before you know it you blurt out “Wanna come?” and immediately wanna kick yourself in the shins.

Remember, you really don’t have to invite everyone, it’s not your 4th grade birthday party. Don’t be mean about it obvi, but it’s fine to only invite your closest friends.

Boring adult sleepover logistics


Make sure you’ve got enough sleeping space/food/booze for everyone invited. If you don’t, ask people to bring their own. We can also pop by with cold drinks if you’re running low!

Consider the mood you want to set

Ask yourself these two questions:
How do I want people to feel during the sleepover?
How do I want them to feel after the sleepover?

Let the answers to these two guide your choices and you’re a long way towards nailing an adult sleepover.

Make it a little magical

Adult sleepovers should feel a little like regressing back to childhood. Check your worries at the door and chill the fuck out. Changing up your place a little can help your friends do this heaps faster. How? Hang those fairy lights that 14-year-old you flipped out over, and drag your mattress into the living room. Cover it in blankets and pillows and make a blanket fort.

Plan some entertainment

Every friend group is different, and we’re not gonna pretend like we know yours. But what we do know is that everyone needs some entertainment. Whether that’s board games, karaoke, drinking games, face masks, dancing, chats, video games, or movies all night – that’s up to you. Just make sure you’ve got ample options available to keep everyone happy.

Plan super easy foods and drinks (and a TON of it!)

No one wants to be in the kitchen when fun’s being had in the living room. Easy does it, so stock up on frozen pizzas, entertainer spring rolls, garlic bread, and all the crisps and chocolate in the known universe.

For drinks, think premixers, wine and beer, or perhaps even a jumbo bowl of punch! Running low on alcohol is the bane of any adult sleepover, so be the Host With the Most and order top ups until 11pm!

No adult sleepover is complete without breakfast mimosas

Your gang awakes in the morning, either smooth skinned and glowy from a night of pampering, or bleary-eyed and headachey from one too many tequila shots, to a MIMOSA BREKKIE! Yep, it’s the best and not very expensive. Your mimosas can even be delivered cold to your door, so you don’t have to worry about fridge space.

Have fun

The best way you can make sure your guests have fun is to have fun yourself, and don’t get too frustrated if plans change or if people chat through the movie. Hey, listen, you’ll knock it out of the park.
