Sporting events and other festivities that draw large crowds, generate significant volumes of single-use plastic cup waste. Even when collected, a small percentage of this plastic waste is actually recycled.
Globelet builds technology enabled systems that produce reusable products that are trackable and can be linked back to their factories to be washed and reused. From branded reusable fan cups and water bottles to coffee cups and stemless wine cups, any event can end single-use plastic drinking products in favor of reuse. By combining the reusable cup with a deposit scheme, patrons can either return the cup to collect their refundable deposit, or keep the cup for continued use.
Alternative solutions include other reusable cup providers and return/deposit schemes such as We Use and ReCircle.
Twickenham Stadium introduced the re-usable Fan Cup as a solution to the flimsy disposables previously used. During an international event more than 140,000 pints of beer are served, which resulted in 140,000 cups being thrown away in a day and drinks were constantly being spilt due to the flimsy material. Now, not only do the Fan Cups help to make us a more sustainable venue, they have also become a souvenir for visitors on a match day.
