Swap-and-go coffee cup scheme, Green Caffeen, has launched a partnership with Hunter Joint Organisation to make it easier for locals to enjoy a takeaway coffee, without the eco guilt. Seven councils in the region are participating, with the scheme adding to the Hunter Joint Organisation's commitment to the circular economy and waste reduction.
Green Caffeen's cups are based on the philosophy of the circular economy and are made from recycled materials. This means that once a cup reaches the end of its viable life, Green Caffeen collects the old cups and recycles them into new cups. "The Hunter region is going circular - we're working towards transitioning to a circular economy to reduce waste to landfill and innovate in industry. Single-use coffee cups don't fit the bill when it comes to a reuse economy, says Bob Pynsent, Hunter Joint Organisation Board Chair and Mayor, Cessnock City Council.
