Sustainable Snowies Launched projects
Snowy Monaro Regional Council financially contributed, along with National Parks and Wildlife Service, Kosciuszko Thredbo, Perisher and Charlottes Pass, and partnered with Green Caffeen to revolutionise our takeaway coffee culture and help save the planet.
Did you know that over 1.2 billion disposable coffee cups are used each year in Australia, 90% of which end up in landfill or as litter?
Over 700 cafés around Australia are already on board. Our region has Green Caffeen Cafés in Berridale, Cooma, Jindabyne, Michelago, Nimmitabel, Perisher and Thredbo.
