Editorial Coffee Cup Recycling

That feel good vibe

Australians use approximately 1 billion disposable coffee cups each year. While reusable cups are growing in popularity, many people still prefer the convenience of a takeaway cup.

To help combat this growing waste problem, Southlands Boulevarde has partnered with Simply Cups, Australia's first coffee cup recycling program and have introduced two dedicated Coffee Cup Recycling Bins throughout the centre for our Retailers and Customers to support this war on waste and help make a positive difference to the environment.

The two new recycling bins are located in the following areas;

• Outside Coles
• Outside Woolworths 

Since the Simply Cups recycling program began in Australia in April 2017, over 10 million cups have been diverted from landfill Nationally with this tally growing on a daily basis. Instead, Simply Cups have worked with innovators to transform the disposable cups into new products, including building materials, garden beds, bench seats and kerbing with more exciting product ranges to be announced in the coming months.

The Southlands Boulevarde community have embraced this initiative and we are so proud to report that we have diverted cups from landfill since early February. Let's keep up the great work and we look forward to providing further positive updates in the future.
