No single-use cups at Wonderfruit

21 November 2022 | Wonderfruit

Single-use cups contribute to a huge amount of waste. Yes, even those compostable and biodegradable ones generate waste. Even though we used environmentally friendly cups for many years, the most popular item that ended up in our waste was cups. Single-use cups. So in 2019, we made a bold decision: no single-use cups at Wonderfruit. And this carries into this year as well: you’ll need to bring your own (or buy one from us). And every year, we release a new collection with cups made from new materials and new colourways inspired by elements in The Fields.

 

Read more about this year’s cups, where to get them and how refills work in The Fields below:

 

NO CUP, NO SERVICE

 

 

If you don’t have a reusable cup, you won’t be able to order a drink. That’s the simple version. We’ve put much thought into how this works, and we’ve made refill life as easy as we can. We also did this in 2019 and are proud of its success. In fact, just 42.3% of attendees purchased a cup from Wonderfruit, meaning that more than half of the audience brought their own cup to Wonderfruit, and nobody felt inconvenienced at all.

 

BRING YOUR OWN CUP, OR BUY ONE FROM US (AND SAVE ON DRINKS)

 

 

Any 16-ounce (pint) cup that is made for reuse is welcome at Wonderfruit: stainless steel, enamel, recycled plastic—there are some stylish options available out there and we encourage you to get creative, even match it to your outfit. But please, no glass. If your cup is bigger than 16 ounces (473ml), bring it anyway. The vendors and bartenders will just leave a little room at the top. If you want to save 5% on alcoholic beverages (excluding beer, bottles, buckets and wine) throughout Wonderfruit, pick up a Wonder Cup.

Carry your cup everywhere you go, and together we can reduce tons of waste from Wonderfruit. We want to encourage everyone to rethink how waste is created, handled, and perceived in our world. It’s part of our thoughtful economy, replacing the disposable culture of convenience that has created the problems we all must solve.
