Green Caffeen is a swap and go reusable coffee cup system offered to local businesses in the Southern Highlands to reduce single-use coffee cups.
Over 1 billion disposable coffee cups are sent to landfill each year. Green Caffeen aims to implement a program that reduces dependency on single-use coffee cups and reduce waste sent to landfill through offering a simple re-usable system.
Council has teamed up with Green Caffeen to provide participating cafes with reusable cups as an alternative to disposable single-use cups. This swap and go re-usable coffee cup system is a simple, safe and sustainable solution! For customers, it’s like borrowing a library book - free as long as they bring the cups back. For cafes, it’s saving money whilst also promoting good waste reduction behaviours.
Green Caffeen launched in the Wingecarribee Shire on the 1st of April 2022 with 20 local cafes initially signed up as part of the program.
After just one month of the Green Cafeen program running, we have already saved nearly 1,000 cups from landfill.
There are over 710 Green Caffeen locations across Australia.

Every cup count’s, It’s up to all of us to help save the planet from single-use plastic
