Young Lawyers go green in October!

Young Lawyers go green in October!

By Stefani Janson

Competition Environment Environmental Protection 


Did you know that in Australia, it is estimated that 2.7 million coffee cups are thrown out every day? According to some estimates, 113 takeaway cups are used every four seconds. This October, the LIV Young Lawyers Community Issues Committee is raising awareness about this important environmental issue. Environmental impact Melburnian lawyers are notorious for their love of coffee, but it comes at a significant environmental cost. Most single use coffee cups eventually make their way to landfill, and even though the plastic film lining the inside of coffee cups is purported to be made from recycled materials or is biodegradable, plastic coffee lids are unable to be recycled and will end up in landfill. Though some of us have the best of intentions and try to recycle our takeaway cups, the best option is to have a reusable takeaway cup at work that you can use for your daily java. Start using a reusable cup But, what if you don’t have a reusable cup? As part of Enviro Week (22-28 October) the LIV’s Young Lawyers Community Issues Committee (CIC) will run a competition to raise awareness for putting good environmental practices in place and inspire Victorian lawyers to change to reusable cups for their coffee. Win an LIV branded reusable cup From 22 October we’re asking Victorian lawyers to ditch their takeaway cup. Upload photos of you drinking coffee in a cup at your favourite cafe or using a reusable cup to Instagram using the hashtag #livlawyersgogreen and be in the running to win one of three resuable LIV branded coffee cups. Competition winners will be announced after 29 October on our social media channels. If you would like more information about this initiative, please contact CIC co-chairs Georgia Smith or Stefani Janson by email at younglaw@liv.asn.au.
