Wimbledon Stamps Down on Waste Plastic

Wimbledon Tennis reusable cups Wimbledon International Tennis Tournament has saved hundreds of thousands of single-use plastic cups going into landfill by partnering up with Green Goblet and using reusable cups on site this year.

With specially designated return bins, and instructions on the cups/goblets to return them to these bins, the vessels were able to be professionally washed and dried overnight by the Green Goblet team. They were then delivered back to site the next day ready to be used again and will be used many times over in the years to come.

The reusable cups were well received by the tennis fans who enjoyed drinking out of a sturdy eco cup. Wimbledon used its influence as one of the most prestigious tennis tournaments in the world by showing that we should all be looking at ways of becoming more environmentally friendly. They certainly got the message out there with ‘Please Help Us Reduce Plastic Waste’ written on the cups.

Well done Wimbledon for a highly successful tournament and for using the initiative of saving the planet one cup at a time.
