UrCup was created as a response to the demand of caterers and event organisers on the need to protect the environment we live in.
Our idea is to produce and distribute reusable cups and other products such as plates, cutlery and mugs. Our aim is to offer gastro-event organisers the chance to respect the environment, avoiding unnecessary plastic waste. That’s why we offer our line of services: from production and rental of personalised cups, to their washing and storage.
What is the mission of the project in a sentence?
Reduce litter production by limiting the use of disposable packaging.
Where and when did the service start?
We first piloted the project in June 2017 in Warsaw during the Orange Warsaw Festival.
Where (in which countries) is the project offered today?
A similar system has been operating in EU countries for several years. In Poland, besides a representative of a Czech supplier, we are the first comprehensive provider of a deposit system service.
To whom is this project aimed? Who belongs to your target group?
The target group of the project are partners: owners of catering establishments, event organisers, beverage producers.
