Reusable cups for festivals & events

May 4, 2020

Reusable cups for festivals & events

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, festivals and events this summer have been decimated. This is no surprise, with the country (and world) in lockdown at the moment.  Let's just hope that the next few weeks sees a relaxation of some description so we can all start returning to the new normal, whatever this looks like.  Suffice to say that the festival industry, however, will already be looking to next year.  And after this crisis has passed, we're sure these music festivals and events will be bigger and better than ever before.  After all, we'll certainly won't need to be asked twice to celebrate!

So, whilst we're in lockdown, and looking ahead to festivals and 2021, today we're looking at reusable plastic cups and glasses that are available to hire online with Event Hire UK.  

A move away from single use disposable cups & glasses

There's little doubt that the festival and events industry is starting to move away from the typical disposable plastic pints and other 'glasses', though we'd suggest maybe not quickly enough.  One look on the TV and in the media and you'll see how disposable plastic bottles and packaging are strangling our land and oceans.  Plastic - once the saviour of the convenience market - is now the sworn enemy.

Used in the right way, however, plastic serves a purpose.  For serving drinks to large volumes of people at festivals and events, for example, it is ideal, as long as you are using reusable plastic cups.  This is because events and festivals of this size have to comply with H&S regulations and not use glass as such.  Reusable cups provide a great solution.  Of course, there is a difference in quality of reusable cups and we'll address this shortly.

Reusable cups from Event Hire UK

We're delighted to offer a range of Stack-Cup hire products which are very popular. These cups, as their name suggests, have a unique stacking mechanism where the handles slot inside each other, enabling you to carry multiple pints and half pints at a time - this certainly helps to reduce queues at your event bars whilst also maximising revenues per guest visit to the bar.  We also offer reusable plastic wine glasses, cocktail glasses and other ranges including the popular Govino range with the finger indent to help you hold the glass whilst enjoying its contents.

Most of our reusable event cups are made in polycarbonate which has the look and feel of glass (well, as close as you can get with it being plastic), and which is virtually unbreakable.  Importantly, these polycarbonate reusable cups can be washed in excess of 500 times and are also 100% recyclable back into the reusable cup manufacturing cycle, completely closing the loop.

You might also be interested in checking our the range of reusable plastic cups and even reusable food-to-go containers with our friends at Event Cup Solutions who provide a great one-stop-shop in terms of the reusable products as well as the service offering into and out of festivals and events.

Whatever your reusable event cup requirements, don't hesitate to contact the experts here online at Event Hire UK - we'll be delighted to assist you and look forward to the new world of festivals, whenever that might be!
