From now on, visitors to the Mercedes-Benz Arena will receive their drinks at events in recycled Ökocups, which will be cleaned in an in-house dishwashing facility after use.
By switching to reusable cups, a deposit cup system will be introduced at Mercedes-Benz Arena, where no cup will leave the arena and thus remain in the recycling loop.
From now on, a deposit of EUR 3 per cup will be charged when drinks are handed out, which will be refunded when they are returned to the snack stands or separate return points. Alternatively, visitors can donate their cups to the eco-social sustainability project FAME FOREST - according to the motto: Donate cups, plant trees.
When purchasing drinks via the Mercedes Platz app, the cup deposit is added in the booking process. The deposit will be refunded in cash when the cups are returned to the concession stands.
Ecocups with up to 100% recycled content
The ecocups, which are available cold and hot drinks, are mostly made of plastic that has already been recycled and are also reprocessed to 100% at the end of their life.
The cups are cleaned on the basis of the highest hygienic and ecological standards in the in-house washing line, which is operated with green electricity.
Reusable cups in the Premium Club
Visitors who have booked a Premium All Inclusive package at events and thus have access to the Premium Club will receive a dark cup when taking their drink to their seats, which does not include a deposit but must be returned in the Premium Club.
