"Electric Picnic is introducing the most ecologically-sound cup system available at the bars this year. The system replaces pint-sized plastic or paper cups with polypropylene hard plastic cups which can be used over 100 times before being fully recycled. Compared to alternative cups which are produced then disposed or recycled after one use, Eco Cups offer the minimum impact on the environment.
Customers purchasing a half-litre sized drink at any of the bars pay a €3 deposit for the Eco-Cup on top of the drink cost for only their first drink
When buying further drinks the customer exchanges their old cup for a new one at no extra cost
At the end of the night people have a choice of either a full refund or taking the cup home with them.
There are a number of special commemorative Electric Picnic pint cups; if you are lucky enough to receive one please feel free to keep it! You can bring it back next year if you wish when we can exchange it for a brand new one!"(I know it's good for the environment, but wouldn't your fourth or fifth drink taste a bit manky after being poured into the same cup?)
