Stats and facts

Do you know most disposable coffee cups are not recyclable and can take up to 50 years to break down in landfill? Across our four campuses, Monash throws away more than 760,000 single disposable coffee cups every year, which is enough to fill 20 trams. It’s time to ditch the disposables and bring your own cup, dine in or use the new borrow cups on campus.

Borrow cup

All Learning and Teaching Building retailers and Wholefoods (at the Campus Centre) provide reusable borrow cups. Once finished, you can just drop the cups off in any of the special collection bins located across the campus, or at participating cafes within the LTB or Wholefoods.

If you are looking for more information or interested in getting involved as a borrow cup volunteer, visit the Borrow Cup Facebook page and shoot us a message.
