Last updated on August 18th, 2016 at 03:46 pm

A very special juice stand located in Sydney has been accepting cryptocurrency, but not to make a profit: their goal is to support media freedom projects and public-interest journalism. Joostice is the name of this stand, which sells delicious and fresh cold-pressed juices and smoothies made only with organic and local products.

You can find the shop next to Newtown Train Station, above the Foodworks, and try a refreshing drink made according to your taste. And the best part is that you get to pay for it with Bitcoin, knowing you will be helping a good cause.

Recognising the great work done by many organisations and individuals, we hope to support their efforts with the profits made at our juice stand, pooling resources of those willing to help and raising awareness within the community”.

This juice stand wants “to be part of the trend towards a not-for-profit economy, where businesses operate for the fulfilment of social need, rather than profit” and it’s sticking perfectly to the plan.

In case you love Joostice’s idea and want to help without buying their products, you can always make a donation through their website.
