Reusable coffee cup scheme

Program name:
Coffee Cup Scheme


The ACT Government is partnering with Green Caffeen for a reusable Coffee Cup Scheme to reduce the use of disposable coffee cups. Using a swap-and-go system, customers can return their used cup to the same cafe or another participating cafe - placing the cup back in rotation. 

It's free for all cafes and customers to get involved. Some cafes will discount the price of a cup of coffee is you're using a reusable cup. 

If you own a cafe or know a cafe that should get on board, more information is available at the Green Caffeen website.
