In today’s blog we’re looking at the benefits of using reusable plastic festival cups and how Event Cup Solutions – through this model – can help festivals to move away from the traditional model of disposable plastic glasses at their event.
What are festivals?
Outdoor music festivals are a well-known fixture in the UK events calendar, with hundreds taking place across the country each year. From Glastonbury, Leeds, Reading & Download Festivals through to smaller music festivals catering for different niches, these can all be fantastic and memorable events, especially if the great British weather behaves itself!
The current situation
With many thousands (sometimes hundreds of thousands) of people attending these outdoor festivals, there comes with it a need to serve large volumes of people quickly and efficiently and whilst also complying with health and safety regulations. For obvious reasons, the use of glass is not permitted, and so festival organisers are constantly looking for the best way to achieve the above goal in the most sustainable and environmentally friendly way and, of course, in the most cost-effective way.
Add to all this the fact that breweries and leading brands will want to ensure that their product is served in a consistent way, and festival organisers have a lot to consider! Up until this point, single use disposable pints and half pints have been the go-to product of choice being as they provide a cheap solution.
However, single use plastic brings with it well-documented problems associated with the planet – one look on social media or reading online articles such as this one from Festival Insights, for instance, or on TV natural world documentaries shows you how plastic easily ends up in landfill or our oceans. It’s now time to move away from single use disposable cups and glasses and towards the reusable model – this is now a fact.
