Plastic Free Hawaiʻi Reusable Cup Program

March 01, 2019

Kōkua Hawaiʻi Foundation’s Plastic Free Hawaiʻi Program partnered with r.Cup to develop a reusable cup for use at large events. These cups made their debut at the Eagles & Jack Johnson show at Honolulu’s Aloha Stadium in December 2018. As a result, we prevented over 22,600 single-use plastic cups from entering the wastestream on just one night! Imagine what we can do collectively when using these cups regularly at events, restaurants, and bars where single-use cups and bottles would ordinarily be used.

Our Plastic Free Hawai‘i branded cups come in two sizes, 12oz and 22oz, and feature art by local artist Heather Brown. The reusable cups are made from BPA-free high quality reusable plastic, are dishwasher safe, and can be reused more than 100 times without fading or cracking.

We invite Hawaiʻi restaurants, bars, and event organizers to utilize these cups at your venues. Read on to learn how you can offer Plastic Free Hawaiʻi cups to your patrons and event-goers.
