We are so proud to announce the release of the Reusables at Events Hygiene - Global Best Practice Guidelines

Convened by Sustainable Event Alliance, leaders from throughout the events and sports sector came together to develop the guidelines including Green Events, A Greener Festival and

The project was possible through the support of The Ocean Race and 11th Hour Racing and was managed by Christie Kamphuis - Co-Founder of bettercup. and SEA Leadership Team Member.

This resource is designed to support event planners in confidently continuing with reusable food and beverage serviceware at events and venues.

The SEA is excited to announce Gobelet as a new member.  "Gobelet believes we can end single-use packaging in our lifetime, together. Gobelet builds technology-enabled systems that allow large scale events to end their reliance on single-use products by deploying reusables. The Globelet platform enables our clients to attach either monetary or non-monetary incentives to the return of our products so we can wash and reuse them, at scale. Some people call it the circular economy; we call it Globelet."
