Swap and Go - Green Caffeen
Every neighbourhood in the Inner West has a trove of cafes to explore. You’ll also see single use coffee cups in use – and littering the streets, parks and gutters, headed for the Cooks River and Harbour.
We have a solution to cut this waste. Together with Green Caffeen and Responsible Cafes we’ve brought swap and go coffee cups to cafes across the Inner West. Since the scheme launched in July 2019, more than 25,000 cups have been saved from landfill. It’s free for cafes and customers and works to support the strong coffee culture and the BYO cup movement. It helps the Inner West move a step closer to zero waste by strengthening our active share economy.
Plastic Free July - $50 coffee voucher giveaway
Are you ready for $50 worth of free coffees?
Every day during Plastic Free July, the team at Green Caffeen we’ll be giving one lucky Green Caffeen user a $50 voucher to spend at their favourite Green Caffeen café.
Each time you take your coffee to go in a Green Caffeen cup and use the Green Caffeen app to check out your cup, you automatically go into the daily draw. Read more on Green Caffeen's facebook page.
How to use Green Caffeen
- Download the free Green Caffeen app.
- Drop in to one of the participating cafés and get a free Green Caffeen cup to drink your coffee, tea,chai or hot choccie simply by scanning your app.
- Drop the cup back to any Green Caffeen café within 30 days and feel the good karma of saving the planet, one cup at a time.
- It is as simple as scan, swap, drink, return.
Green Caffeen cups can be used endlessly between cafes and users who are part of the Green Caffeen network. If you can’t drop your cup back to a participating café within 30 days, there’s a $12.99 fee to allow them to make sure there are enough cups for everyone to reuse.
