Perth social media enterprise saves huge amounts of coffee grounds, hessian bags and plastic beer clips from going to landfill every day. 

This female-founded start-up was born to help Perth deal with unusual materials and products that shouldn’t end up in landfill. 

Grounds are collected from cafes and roasteries and taken to community gardens for composting. Beer clips (4-pack and 6-pack holders) and hessian bags were added to their services earlier this year. 

In the short period, Donut Waste has established 54 drop-off points at local bottle shops making it easy for the community to drop off clips for reuse.

The founder of Donut Waste Sharka Hornakova says: “We all have a role to play in combating climate change. Thinking about where the product you are about to buy will end up or the effect it will have on our climate if you throw it into general waste should be our second nature.” 

Reminding us of responsible consumption and the need for climate action.
