Cup Project

Grab a coffee Grey Lynn style – Grab a Koha Jar!

Want to grab a coffee on the go? Sick of disposable coffee cups? HERE is an alternative you can make yourself! 

Grey Lynn 2030 Waste Away (GLWA) and the Grey Lynn Business Association are partnering to help reduce usage of disposable coffee cups in the Grey Lynn district. 

Brigitte Sistig from GLWA says, “Disposable cups are a major issue for our environment. If you forget to bring your own cup, don’t worry. We are creating coffee mugs from recycled glass jars and making heat-bands from recycled fabric to protect your fingers. Come and join us!”.

Grey Lynn 2030 Waste Away have been educators and advocates around food waste, single-use plastics and upcycling business waste into saleable or hireable products since 2008. Tackling disposable wasteful materials will step up local waste minimisation efforts. 

Workshops making heatbands for the Koha Jars are planned to begin in February 2020. Go to the Grey Lynn 2030 Facebook Page to find out more. WATCH THIS SPACE!

If you are concerned about waste, are a keen sewer, or know how to thread a needle and want to get involved in a super cool collective community project, email Grey Lynn 2030. We’ll be very happy to hear from you!
