Hot on the heels of being awarded the Green Supplier Award at the recent Vision:2025 conference, it was announced on Friday 10th December 2021 that the ONE Planet ONE Chance® Reusable Cup System has been shortlisted for the prestigious Festival Supplier Awards 2022 in the category of Green Supplier. The winner of this award will be announced at the awards ceremony on 27th January 2022 at The Hurlingham Club in London.
The ONE Planet ONE Chance® Reusable Cup System is the UK’s only carbon-neutral reusable cup system and is designed to take the ‘problem’ of reusable cups away from festival organisers, venues, bar operators and brands. It provides a turn-key solution and includes not only the supply and washing of the reusable cups, but also includes on-site management with ‘cup crews’, cup return points, highly visible point of sale, ‘binfrastructure’ and even free marketing support in the form of physical and digital assets design to help communicate the scheme to customers both pre-event and during the event.
Owned and operated by Event Cup Solutions, the reusable cup system offsets the carbon emissions generated by the reusable cup operations at festivals and events by working with SQSTR to plant trees in the UK – for every 1,000 cups returned, a tree is planted. A certificate relating to this tree planting initiative is also supplied to the festival organiser after the event.
John Reeves, Sales Director at Event Cup Solutions, said, “We’re naturally delighted to have been shortlisted for this prestigious award. We’re seeing phenomenal interest in our sustainable reusable cup system, and it’s been hugely popular this year at festivals and events such as Lost Village, CarFest North, Pub in the Park and many others. We are looking forward to delivering a world-class reusable cup system to even more festivals in 2022.”
