No more eco guilt: a new swap-n-go coffee cup scheme just started in Sydney

There’s already a pretty large reusable coffee cup culture in Sydney’s Inner West, so when cafes like Ona, Cornersmith, Two Chaps and Cherry Moon mention they’re on board, you know it’s going to take off.

Green Caffeen has made its debut in Sydney, offering most of us who contribute to the 50,000-odd coffee cups that wind up in landfill every 30 minutes the chance to curb the decline of the world.

The new swap-n-go coffee cup scheme has launched in partnership with the Inner West Council and Responsible Cafes to make it easier for locals to enjoy a take-away coffee, without the eco-guilt.

Complete with an app compatibility and the promise of free reusable coffee cup, provided you return any you use, Green Caffeen is taking the initiative needed to encourage eco activism without you even needing to try.

“The Inner West already has a strong BYO cup culture. But everyone has those days when you forget your cup yet you still need your life-sustaining coffee to get through the day. This partnership is building on the strong foundations in place and making it easy – both for customers and cafes – to reduce the waste of takeaway coffee cups,” said Damien Clarke, Green Caffeen.

Green Caffeen will be available across the Inner West from 30 July.

How it works:

  • Download the Green Caffeen app and sign up with your details
  • Scan a reusable cup at a participating café
  • Sip your lovely hot cup of coffee and feel the life force flow through you
  • Return to any participating café within 30 days (if you can’t return it within 30 days, you’ll incur a $12.99 fee to make sure there are enough of cups in the system for everyone to use)
  • Repeat, repeat, repeat.
