Harden the Cup Up Day is an annual event championed by Chandler Macleod Group and our business, customers and staff.

We believe that every small action counts, and our combined efforts can make a difference.

Disposable coffee cups (and food containers) are a significant problem for our environment and our key goal in launching the Harden the Cup Up campaign is to educate and inspire change above and beyond our own organisational walls.

At Chandler Macleod Group, we recognise that in order to reduce our waste footprint we need more companies to follow suit. We are glad to be able to partner with some of these diverse brands:


  • We know ditching the disposable cups during the pandemic is harder said than done.
  • Here are some solutions to encourage you to continue the war on waste:
  • - Having your coffee/tea at home in a cup or mug

  • - Visit a local café and have your coffee/tea inside

  • - If using a disposable cup is unavoidable, follow instructions on how to properly recycle the item

  • - Ask your local café if you can use your keep cup
