RAW Foundation have published the Guide to Reusable Bar Cups at Events, the final resource for events in the AIF’s ‘Drastic on Plastic’ campaign which brought over 60 festivals together to ban single-use plastic at events by 2021.
The guide provides event organisers with comprehensive information about why to choose reusable cups rather than disposables, the environmental benefits, tips on how to manage reusable cups onsite, and examples of how festivals have been successful.
The Drastic on Plastic Action Pack also includes the Plastic-Free Festival Guide, which provides an overview of the action events can take, a festivalgoer guide, and templates for an A6 lanyard mini-guide.
Changing to reusable bar cups is one of the key changes organisers can make, and is being adopted by more events every year, with festivals such as Shambala, Download, Glastonbury and many sports sector events and venues using them.
The core message of the campaign is ‘re-use not single use’. RAW Foundation is working across the event industry to inspire change toward a ‘pointless plastic free’ world, and is presenting a new conference at the Showmans Show on Thursday 18th October, the day after the Vision:2025 event which looks at how events can cut environmental impacts across all areas.
