When it comes to sustainable cups for events, there are several options to consider. The best option depends on various factors such as the type and scale of the event, budget, and the environmental priorities of the organisers and venue.
From Compostable Cups, Recyclable Cups and Biodegradable options to Hybrid solutions and of course, the Reusable cup.
A lot of these options come with very specific guidelines for use at events. For example, you will only use Compostable or Biodegradable Cups if you have composting facilities and the right conditions to fully biodegrade on site. Recyclable Cups wont work well if you have insufficient recycling infrastructure and they may end up in landfill.
Cups can take 450-1000 years to break down in landfill or the ocean
Studies have now confirmed that reusable cups are the single most effective way to improve the sustainability of your events and experiences. What's even better? They don’t come with lists of guidelines for your venue or facility that you have to adhere to in order to use them.
Recycled cups are out, make way for the reuse revolution!
So what makes Reusable Cups the best, most sustainable option?
The majority of environmental impacts arise from the manufacture - Reusable cups are affordable, durable and designed for multiple uses. Although you may also think that we should be trying to avoid plastic altogether - When considering environmental impact, the aim is to find the cup type with the smallest environmental impact overall.
Did you know that our Reusable Cups are the only solution that actually takes single use plastic seriously?
Our cups can be used multiple times, washed, and then reused again. They are manufactured from durable materials that won't end up in landfill or harm the environment.
You might think that reusable cups require additional logistics for collection, washing, and storage but this is not true and the environmental benefits of reusable cups will always outweigh any challenges because they are the greenest solution! Reusable cups are a better environmental option after as little as 3 uses. Unlike other reusable cup companies, you don't need to worry about having the available resources to wash and manage the cups with Stack-Cup, because we do it all for you.
Here at STACK-CUP™:
- We have several logistics centers, all over the UK
- We use our own transport for delivery and collection
- We don't use additional kit for stacking, carrying or moving around making us far greener than other businesses.
- We invest back into carbon removal projects and sustainability companies
We work at all types of large scale events, with a strong sustainable culture. Like The Green Gathering - who, this year, were presented with the International Greener Festival Award – the highest accolade in the world for sustainable events. Together, we are achieving a greener future!
When choosing the best option for your event, you should consider factors like waste management infrastructure, logistical feasibility, attendee preferences, and the overall sustainability goals of your event. It's essential to communicate with your suppliers, caterers, and waste management teams to ensure the chosen cups can be properly managed and disposed of in an environmentally friendly manner.
