How does it work?
In three simple steps…
1. I pay a £ 1 deposit for a cup
2. I pay for my drink
3. I return my cup and get my £ 1 deposit back
Cleanliness – To put an end to the ranges of plastic cups thrown on the ground, abandoned in the streets or parks, now is the time for durable goods, which implies a change in consumption patterns. Reusable cups can reduce 80% of the volume of waste during an event.
If we can no longer find on the ground paper towels, glass or aluminium cans, plastic plates and silverware or other trays of chips, then the behaviour is changing. Therefore, with fewer disposables, the public will then make a greater effort to pick up the rubbish and discard it in the bins.
- This is a positive effect of the implementation of reusable cups.
- Festival or event grounds remain clean and pleasant.
- With this small gesture, consumers contribute to the preservation of the environment and landscape.

At end of its life, the reusable cup finds a second life. Melted, it is recycled into beach ashtrays, cup-holders, frost scraper for cars…
