Prospect Local Environment Group needs your online vote
on Fund My Neighbourhood to win a $10,000 grant for its campaign to encourage using non-disposable, reusable coffee cups.
It is estimated Australians use 1 billion disposable coffee cups each year.
It's estimated up to 90 per cent of all disposable cups ended up in landfill.
As a progressive environmental initiative, PLEG wants to run a local campaign in the City of Prospect to raise community awareness and to encourage both community and cafes to switch to using non-disposable, reusable coffee cups.
It will improve our neighbourhood by reducing the amount of waste to landfill, save expenditure on waste management and provide a practical and positive example for other communities to adopt for environmental benefits.
