Monash Borrow Cup

Monash BorrowCup provides an alternative to disposable coffee cups on University campuses, by enabling people to borrow a reusable cup that can be returned later. This student-led program was introduced to nine campus cafes in 2019, involved more than 50 student volunteers, and seven students employed for BorrowCup operations. On average, 1400 reusable coffee cups were used per week, with more than 67,000 disposable cups being diverted from landfill in a year.
