Did you know that 2.7 million single-use coffee cups are discarded every day in Australia, filling up landfills with waste?

Green Caffeen is a free reusable coffee cup system available on campus that makes it easier than ever to say goodbye to disposable coffee cups. It's a perfect solution for coffee lovers that works just like borrowing a library book. Plus, you no longer have to remember to bring your favourite coffee cup to campus – all you need is your phone!

  2. Head to a participating cafe and order your coffee in a Green Caffeen cup.

  3. Scan the Green Caffeen QR code to check the cup out.

  4. Enjoy your coffee, wastefree.

  5. Return the cup to any participating Green Caffeen cafe within 30 days.

Working towards a circular economy

The partnership between the University of Melbourne and Green Caffeen aligns with the University's next Sustainability Plan to 2030, which will outline our commitment to reducing waste to landfill, ensuring ethical and social consumption, and working towards a circular economy. This means stopping waste at the source and improving reuse services.
