Caffeine on the Mornington Peninsula goes green

Published on 19 October 2022


We’ve partnered with Green Caffeen to bring an eco-friendly coffee solution to the Mornington Peninsula.
Businesses, visitors and locals alike can get involved with the free swap and go reusable cup program, to help reduce the community’s reliance on single-use coffee cups. 
How does it work?

Coffee drinkers simply:

  • Download the Green Caffeen app and tap 'grab, swap or drop’.
  • Purchase your drink at participating cafes and scan the Green Caffeen code.
  • Return your empty cup to the same cafe or any other participating café.

You then grab a fresh cup the next time you order your coffee! As long as the cup is returned within 30 days, it’s completely free to use, just pay for the coffee.

Download the Green Caffeen app today from the App Store or Google Plus!
I’m a local café, how can I join the program?

Free for businesses to join, simply register your interest online. Questions? Email

Quotes attributable to Mayor Councillor Anthony Marsh:

“We're phasing out single-use plastics! Through this great initiative, together as a community we candecrease our reliance on plastics and reduce the amount of litter ending up in our beautiful environment." 
Quotes attributable to Green Caffeen Director, Martin Brooks:
“Green Caffeen removes the two common excuses for not using a reusable coffee cup – ‘I forgot to bring it with me’ and ‘I haven’t washed my cup yet.
“We’re excited to see the continued growth of the program in what is an exciting time for reusables as cafes transition away from their reliance upon single-use packaging. Legislative bans on single-use plastics are on the way, and we’re working hard to provide cafes and coffee drinkers with a convenient on the go option.”
