Turning Trash to Treasure

What do get when you cross heaps of coffee cups with lots of ink? Ink Drip Coffee!

Here’s a scary statistic: a recent ABC report shows Australians consume 50,000 takeaway coffees every 30 minutes – and those 50,000 coffee cups go into landfill.

So, during Sustainability September, we invited everyone to join us in inking coffee cups at South Melbourne Market. During our free workshops, we used trash from the market to ink up a total of 124 coffee cups for exhibition. Now that’s what we call turning trash into treasure!

Our recycled coffee cups were generously donated by The Bean Cartel (who make AWESOME coffee, by the way). That’s where you can now see the colourful artwork: on display in their Armadale cafe. Thank you The Bean Cartel!


A huge thank you to South Melbourne Market and everyone who helped us create our art.
