Mourning Coffee

“Just because you can’t see it, doesn’t mean it isn’t there.”

Planet Ark has calculated that every 30 seconds in Australia 50,000 disposable cups become landfill and it’ll take an average of 30 years for most cups to decompose.

There’s cups in landfill that are older than the people who created this project.
