Festivals replace 2 million disposable plastic jars with a new, sustainable alternative

Indhold fra partner Hvad er dette?

Festival guests will for the first time consume ice-cold draft beer from sustainable and recyclable plastic glasses. The Danish festivals Northside, Tinderbox, Roskilde and GRØN are introducing a new greener alternative.

Every year, more than 2 million disposable plastic beer mugs are being used when tens of thousands of festival guests have quenched their thirst. But now it’s over. From this year’s festivals, the old disposable plastic jar will have to be used for the benefit of a completely new and sustainable recycled plastic glass, developed by Tuborg in collaboration with NorthSide, Tinderbox, Roskilde festival and GREEN.

The initiative was launched today at Plastic Change (which is an environmental organization) by Tuborg and the four festivals: “This year, Tuborg will literally make life a little greener at the festivals. We are launching new washable plastic glasses that everyone can lease, and we start at the four major festivals that have helped to develop the idea together with Plastic Change. It’s a great day for Tuborg, and a huge step towards reducing unnecessary plastic waste through a more circular business model. The drinking experience is the same or better, but in the future Tuborg will literally take the dishes in our new, mobile dishwasher, ”says Christian Sveigaard, marketing and sponsor director for Tuborg.
