The campaign will receive an injection of government funding via the City of Sydney’s latest round of knowledge exchange sponsorships.

“In our area alone, 100 million takeaway coffee cups end up in landfill every year – and each one takes around 50 years to decompose,” said Lord Mayor Clover Moore. “Responsible Cafes connects and promotes cafes that encourage customers to refuse takeaway cups for good, and they’re aiming to recruit another 100 new city cafes.”

Can Melbourne the coffee capital, follow suit and make the same commitment?
