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

Working towards a circular economy

The partnership between the University of Melbourne and Green Caffeen aligns with the University's  Sustainability Plan 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.
