Did you know that most coffee cups aren’t recycled due to their plastic lining? It’s estimated that approximately 8,000 disposable coffee cups are used each day on the St Lucia campus. 

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! Or join UQ's Green Caffeen program for free and borrow a BYO cup.

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!
