Reusable cup hire is booming in popularity

Reusable cup hire is booming in popularity

We all know how important it is nowadays to be environmentally conscious.  With incoming legislation and Governments around the world committing to targets to reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions (GHGs), everyone needs to be doing their bit.  One of the most visible ways of contributing to this is by buying electric cars, for instance.  However, the way that we as individuals go about our daily lives - and how 'sustainable' our everyday choices are - is just as important.

There's no doubt that everyone has been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, globally.  Many industries were forced to 'close' as lockdown hit hard.  Festivals were just one of many, and it's good to see the return of festivals in 2021, with visitors revelling in the opportunity to be able to mix, dance and enjoy themselves once more.

And festivals, of course, are a prime example of where we can act in more of a responsible manner.  Many festivals are already embracing all the sustainable options available to them, with many more realising that they need to act fast.  Change is driven by customers demanding that sustainable practices are adopted!

Reusable cup hire, therefore, is a sector which is booming in popularity.

Up until now, the go-to cup of choice has been the flimsy, single use plastic pints and half pints which, when drunk out of, are then thrown away...and we all know where single use plastic end up - we HAVE to avoid this.

At the same time, however, reusable cups were seen to be confusing and complication, for both event organisers and customers.  Even worse, they were seen to be expensive, certainly in comparison to single use disposable plastic cups.

Our reusable plastic cups here at Event Hire UK are the ideal solution for festival organisers and large scale events.  They are 100% reusable and recyclable, and are used in a closed loop process, meaning that the materials go back into the manufacturing of new reusable cups.

We offer a range of different reusable cups for hire, including the ONE Planet ONE Chance® range of pints and half pints, which provides customers with an eco message to help reinforce positive environmental behaviour, as well as the STACK-CUP range, with its unique stacking handle design, enabling customers to carry multiple drinks at the same time, meaning fewer queues at your event!  We also provide a range of non-branded reusable cups and glasses including reusable wine glasses, reusable champagne flutes and even reusable tumblers and bottled beer glasses.  The range of today's marketplace truly is immense!

With pressure from consumers on festival and large event organisers to 'do the right thing', and incoming legislation forcing up the price of single use plastics, there's no doubt that reusable cups are the future.  Quite how you want to use these cups at your event is down to you, but suffice to say that the experts here at Event Hire UK have stocks of hundreds of thousands.

Further improving our sustainability offering is the fact that Event Hire UK delivers and collects to and from sites around the country from 4 regional distribution and wash centres, meaning that fewer miles are travelled compared to our competitors, and enabling us to reduce the carbon impact of our activities even further.  And, once the reusable cups are back in these wash centres, the industrial washing machines in-situ are the most efficient in the industry, using only 25ml of water to wash a single cup.

If you are a festival or large event organiser looking to move your event towards a more sustainable future, don't hesitate to browse and place your secure order for reusable cup hire with Event Hire UK, safe in the knowledge that as well as putting your faith in the hands of the experts, you are also doing your bit for the environment.

We look forward to working with you soon.
