  • We’re ditching our disposables at Monash and we’re asking all our staff and students to reuse!  
    We want to remove single use, disposable cups for our university.  We're running events and initiatives on campus to increase the use of reusable cups at Monash.
    This isn’t just a token gesture – with mass participation our campaign has the potential to keep more than one million single-use cups out of landfill each year, which would fill 20 Melbourne trams!

    The problem with disposables

    Most disposable cups are not recyclable due to the plastic membrane that lines them. They contaminate our recycling and can take up to 50 years to degrade in landfill.
