Importantly, polycarbonate cups have a lifespan in excess of other plastic cups, with their 500+ washes. And, at the end of their life, 100% of the eco cup can be recycled back into the polycarbonate cup manufacturing process, enabling us to close the loop, making products in our ONE reusable cup range the perfect choice.
ONE Planet ONE Chance®
You can read more about our ONE Planet ONE Chance® brand conception and evolution here. We believe this wording provides a valuable and environmentally sustainable message to visitors to your festival or event. Glasses in our ONE reusable cup range are not branded reusable cups in the true sense of the word in that they don’t have your festival or event logo, dates and other content wrapped around the reusable cup, and for good reason.
In our opinion, branded reusable cups are not reusable cups in the sense of how they are used and, in many respects, are not much better than using disposable event cups.
Why? Because the more memorable you make the event branding on your cup, the more attractive it will be for your visitors to take it home as a momento or souvenir. And the chances are that this ‘reusable’ cup will sit in a cupboard at home and then eventually get thrown away, maybe after 2 or 3 more uses.
That’s why we believe our ONE Planet ONE Chance® re-usable branded cups are so powerful. Whilst it does provide the right message to users, they are less inclined to want to take glasses from our ONE reusable cup range home and so encourages them to return it to the bar or place it in the reusable cup collection bin at the exit point.
Essentially, if you are operating a re-usable cup deposit scheme where the user pays a £1 or £2 deposit on top of the price of their first drink and then returns the cup at the end to get their deposit back, it’s a case of balancing the decision of whether the attractiveness of the reusable cup as a souvenir outweighs this £1 or £2 value.
We believe that the more colourful and extensive branding you have on a reusable cup, the more attractive it becomes to take home. There is, therefore, a fine balance which we believe we have achieved with our ONE Planet ONE Chance® branding on all our ONE reusable cup range products.
