Conscious Cup Campaign


Promoting waste prevention through reuse


Coffee Cups

With our:

Cafe Map

Communications tools



Conscious Cup Campaign works with citizens, community groups, food to go businesses and government bodies to communicate and promote waste prevention through reuse.

We ask participating cafes to incentivise customers who bring reusables and in turn we promote those Conscious Cafes. We assist Cafes reduce their waste by advising them on policy in relation to single use plastics. We also provide support, information and toolkits to all types of community groups, organisations and educational facilities who want to reduce single use food to go packaging.
