Cupsuckers and the environment
There are 138 cups on each side of this Cupsucker!
Cupsuckers help you reduce the environmental impact of your festival, event or business by minimizing the volume of landfill-bound waste produced.
Used cups take up a lot more space in the garbage than you might think. Garbage containers tend to fill up and overflow quickly on nights when beverage sales are high because maintenance crews can't keep up, and dense crowds make bag removal impossible.
Volume reduction is a great environmental benefit of using Cupsuckers, and it has the added bonus of reducing your waste removal costs.
The contents of just two Cupsuckers come close to filling this 45 gal. garbage barrel!
Where Cupsuckers really make a big difference on the environment is when they are used with compostable or recyclable cups. These are cups that can safely be diverted from the landfill waste stream and sent to a compost or recycling facility, not the dump!
Using compostable cups is the best way to let your patrons know that your organization takes its environmental commitment seriously. It's also a great way to improve your bottom line - less garbage for the dump means a reduction of tipping fees because you wind up having fewer bins for pick-up. Compostable or recyclable cups that have been sorted and stacked using Cupsuckers can be easily stored in a separate container for pick-up by a composter or recycler, and their reduced volume results in a smaller overall load.
