Reusable cup hire for outdoor events

September 28, 2021

Reusable cup hire for outdoor events

As Autumn begins, the early mornings and evenings are becoming darker, and the warm summer months will soon be a distant memory.  And this Summer has certainly been a memorable one.  If we cast our minds back 12 months to the Summer of 2020 and some of us were in lockdown, others were enjoying the 'eat out to help out' (yes, remember that?) and life as we know it was in turmoil.

Fast-forward to the Summer just gone, and we finally started to see a relaxation of restrictions, and things started to return to a much-needed sense of normality again.  The events and hospitality industry was hit extremely hard, and so the return of outdoor events such as concerts, festivals and other similar events was welcomed with open arms.

It will be interesting to see how the push towards sustainability continues post-pandemic.  Before the pandemic struck, it was certainly gathering momentum with society at large embracing sustainable products and services at an ever-increasing rate...and not before time, of course.  

However, the pandemic brought with it the need to protect the global population, and so items such as masks, packaging for testing kits, disposable aprons and other PPE, for instance, have been in circulation in HUGE numbers.  The need to do so, of course, is obvious, but sustainability inevitably took a back seat.  Now that we're coming out of the pandemic period, it would be great to see a return to sustainability becoming high, once again, on people's priority lists.

One of the product lines that we have here at Event Hire UK, which has without doubt seen a massive upturn in popularity, is our range of reusable cups.

Reusable cups vs single use plastic cups

The issue of how festivals, concerts and large scale events can move away from single use, disposable plastic cups for serving drinks has long been one for debate. There's of course the balance between 'doing the right thing' and it also being affordable.  Let's face facts - single use disposable cups are the cheapest solution...though actually won't be for long when incoming legislation and taxes hit.  There really is, therefore, no better time for large scale outdoor events to move towards a reusable cup hire system.  The problem is, of course, that we all know how damaging single use plastic is to the planet and our environment.  With the equivalent of a truck load of waste being dumped into our oceans every minute, we HAVE to move away from this.

In the past, however, reusable cup schemes have been seen as being both complicated and expensive.  However, our range of reusable festival cups and others provide you with an opportunity to change that perception.

Reusable cups are exactly that - reusable plastic.  Yes, they are plastic, but they are actually part of a closed-loop manufacturing process, meaning that at the end of their life span of over 500 washes, they get recycled back into the reusable cup manufacturing process.

The complete range of reusable cups

And eco cup hire doesn't just mean pints and half pints!  In today's marketplace, there's also reusable wine glasses, reusable Champagne flutes, reusable plastic tumblers and many more, to provide you with exactly what you need for your event.

And, importantly, these reusable cups are plastic and not glass, and so 100% comply with outdoor H&S regulations - in other words, they can't be used as weapons!

For the complete range of reusable cup hire, don't hesitate to check out the range online at Event Hire UK and place your secure order 24/7.  Our team is on hand, ready to help you in whatever way they can.  With years of experience in the industry and a wealth of knowledge, you can be assured of a seamless hire experience, nationwide.

We look forward to hearing from you soon!
