Petition to ban plastics in coffee cups

Coffee cups and their plastic lids are among the most littered items in Australia, regularly found in ocean cleanup surveys

1.84 billion single-use cups are used and discarded in Australia every year,¹ filling up our landfills and our oceans.

With plastic pollution of our oceans projected to triple by 2040,² we must rapidly shift away from single-use plastics and drive a nation wide adoption of reusable containers.

Together with the Boomerang Alliance of environmental organisations, we’ve developed a national proposal to phase out disposable coffee cups, starting with plastic lids and linings.

Sign the petition today and urge Australia’s governments to:

Coffee shouldn’t cost the earth. Urge your state/territory government to phase out disposable plastic coffee cups today!
