Reusable cups are returning to FRINGE WORLD Hubs, Girls School and The Pleasure Garden in 2022.
The sustainability program is carrying on this festival to reduce waste at Fringe.
Over 120,000 single-use plastic cups were saved from landfill in 2021 with this initiative, and we are expecting even more in 2022!
When you grab a bevvy at Girls School or The Pleasure Garden this festival, the cost of a cup is $2.
If you want another drink, simply take your cup back to the bar and reuse it (or get a clean one).
Done with your cup?
Once you’re done with your cup, you have three options:
- Use your cup to vote for a charity to receive a donation by placing it in one of the purple bins near the exits
- Show your receipt to claim a $2 refund at the Cup Kiosk
- Take your cup home
If you choose to vote for a charity to receive a donation, not only does it show off your big heart, but your cup will be washed and reused.
The organisation that receives the most cup votes at the end of the festival will receive a $2,000 donation, second will receive a $1,500 donation, and third receive a $1,000 donation.
