Therefore, despite the fact these are disposable glasses, we still offer disposable cups that are 100% recyclable. At the start of the production process, our Go-Green disposable cups are made from rPET (post-consumer waste such as water & soda bottles) and at the end of their single use, they can be recycled – maybe not back into the production of a new disposable cup or glass like their reusable polycarbonate equivalent – but at least 100% of the cup is being used over and over again.
Whilst we will always support the use of reusable cups for festivals and events, we realise that disposable cups and glasses are still in the marketplace and that’s why we offer them.
And, of course, whilst the overriding reason for not using disposable cups is very much centred around the environment, there is also the useability factor to consider. Big beer brands, in an ideal world, do not want their beer to be served in flimsy, cheap disposable cups as this is not the brand image they want to portray.
Disposable cups for large scale events
For large beer brands, it’s all about consistency of product delivery – in other words, they want their product to be served in exactly the same way, wherever you are. Cheap disposable cups, however, are a world apart from a pint glass in a pub, for instance. That’s why although the disposable cups might be the cheapest option, they are certainly not the usual preferred option for the large beer brands who will almost always gravitate towards polycarbonate or polypropylene reusable cups.
