Did you know that most coffee cups aren’t recycled due to their plastic lining? It’s estimated that Australians use one billion disposable coffee cups every year, comprising around 20% of all waste in landfill. 

Never fear though – there are plenty of incentives on campus to help you cut down on the waste from your daily habit. Get a discount off the price of your cuppa when you bring your own reusable cup. Don’t have a reusable cup yet? Plenty of the coffee shops sell Keep Cups and give you a free coffee at the same time!

Compare the incentives around campus in the handy guide below, and visit Responsible Cafes to find out which cafes in Australia offer discounts for the waste-conscious!
