Fall Campaign: Coffee Cup Recycling

Java minute to recycle? Over 20% of the waste generated at Langara comes from coffee cups. That's more than any other waste item! Let's work together to reduce this number and ensure that coffee cups are recycled properly. With the help of our volunteer Sustainability Ambassadors, we encourage all Langara students and employees to "get to know your coffee cup". It's as easy as 1-2-3!


Want more information? Stop by the recycling booth during Welcome Week on September 8. Find us outside on the front lawn across from the Bookstore. Prizes and refreshments!

Upcoming Events

In September, look for our student engagement booths on campus. You'll find sorting games, cool prizes, and tons of recycling information when you visit our booths at the following events:

Sustainability Ambassadors will also be at surprise pop-up booths throughout the year. Follow Langara's Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram channels to find out where we'll be next!

Interested in being a Sustainbility Ambassador?

Sustainability Ambassadors are what we call our amazing "green team" of student volunteers. They're dedicated, energetic, and committed to making a positive change in the environment. Without them, our efforts towards a greener campus would not be possible. Look for our Sustainability Ambassadors at any of our events: you can spot them easily in their bright green T-shirts. proudly wearing their green T-shirts. They're knowledgeable about all the different recycling streams on campus, so talk to them about recycling and they'll be happy to answer any sustainability-related questions you might have.

We are always looking for more volunteers. If you're a student at Langara interested in making a difference in your community, please email
