Reuse coffee cups without washing up with Patrick Manley, CEO of Cercle

July 29, 2021

In this episode, I speak to Patrick about the technology and thinking behind a sustainable reusable cup service for city-going coffee drinkers, called Cercle. 


We cover:

  • Why we need to move to reusable coffee cups

  • Driving sustainable behaviour change through convenience 

  • How the Cercle customer loop works 

  • Technology that underpins the system and the future opportunities 

  • How city-going coffee drinkers, cafes and building managers can get involved 


About Patrick:


Patrick is the founder and CEO of Cercle, a start-up focused on making it easier for people to use reusable cups at work. What started out as a passion project turned into a company with a proof of concept running in Sydney. Patrick is an advocate for the circular economy and how we can create more sustainable systems to minimise our environmental impact starting with the humble coffee cup. When not thinking about cups or drinking coffee, Patrick can be found in and around Sydney, surfing, wrangling big data and lounging with his two whippets.
