Eco Events on the Rise
Here in the UK, we are becoming more responsible with each year that passes, understanding the need to protect our planet.
This is why we have seen a huge rise in the number of ‘eco’ events being planned.
From annual Christmas parties to weddings and awards ceremonies, the theme of responsibility is always prevalent. And, this is certainly the case going into 2020.
This is something we have noticed through our business; Mobile Bar Hire. Having received more calls for eco-friendly bar hire than ever before, it is safe to say that the events industry is having to move with the times.
Eco-friendly bar hire
Eco-friendly bar hire is basically a bar that is kinder to the environment than conventional alternatives.
- Materials – Rather than plastic or glass, eco bars are made from recyclable or biodegradable materials; materials that will not make their way to landfills.
- Local produce – Another way the events industry is reducing its carbon footprint is by only investing in local produce. As well and keeping money in the local economy, buying local drinks and food will not require delivery vans to travel far and burn waste into the atmosphere.
- Water waste – Most bars have buckets of melting ice behind them, causing a great amount of water waste. This is why most bartenders are now getting their ice out of the freezer as they make the drinks, ensuring they are limiting their waste where possible.
- Ditching plastic straws – In a plea to limit plastic waste as much as possible, the majority of bars and restaurants are ditching plastic straws, with almost 80% of drinking establishments now using cardboard alternatives.
