HOW GLOBELET WORKS?
Globelet is not just a cup. It's a system. We create integrated systems which dramatically reduce waste at festivals and events.
OUR FESTIVAL SYSTEM
HOW DOES IT WORK?
1. I pay $3 deposit for my Globelet
2. I pay for my drink
3. I return my Globelet to get back my deposit
A RETURNED CUP
At any time a customer can get their deposit back by returning it to the designated area. They receive back their bond.
AN UNRETURNED CUP
Sometimes, the consumer decides to keep their Globelet as a souvenir.
FOR THE BARTENDER
For a consumer who has no Globelet, the price is increased by $3.
A person who has an empty or dirty Globelet can exchange it for a full one.
Full Globelet's can be prepared in advance.
Crates - We have crates for reusable storage of Globelets at the festival.
FOR THE ORGANISER
We can adapt our operation to fit any event.
It is important however, to define the below factors for any given event:
- The number of bars on site
- An approximation of litres of drink to be distributed
- The number of visitors
If you are organising a sports race and cannot install the deposit and distribution stands for Globelets, we recommend you rent our generic unprinted Globelets. These generic Globelets can be prepared on the tables. The runner passes, takes their Globelet then throws it in the container provided.
Organisers may choose to give each participant their own Globelet at registration time.
MULTI BAR, OPEN FESTIVAL
“AT MY EVENT, SOME BARS ARE UNDER DIFFERENT MANAGEMENT”
This is a multi-bar, open festival type event.
The bars for village festivals or fairs are often managed by different associations. The consumer in this scenario orders their drinks from a bar. If they want to have another drink or change their cup they can do it at any of the other bars using Globelet. If they want to surrender their globelet, they can do it at one of the events bars and then they will receive back their deposit. This is an effective operation.

HOW WASHING WORKS?
We have onsite washing systems and offsite washing systems for major events.
For more information about our washing systems, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
A few tips for washing the cups on site yourself:
- Have a place from the passage of electrical cables
- Have a drinking water point (hot if possible) available
- Have a discharge wastewater to reach and out of the passage groups
- Provide an electrical point to illuminate the night stand
- Install a table, there lay three plastic tubs (we can make available to you on reservation)
The washing set up:
Tray 1: wash glasses with a green liquid dish, with a sponge without scraper.
Tray 2: first rinse.
Tray 3: a mandatory second rinse.
The water in the rinsing tank must be renewed regularly. The water in this tank is emptied and refilled.
Some liquids make the glasses smell and colour (including wine and coffee). If you can not wash the glasses immediately, let them soak. If you wash the cups in hand, please make sure they are washed properly.
The glasses are machine washable but traditional dishwasher can "throw" the cups because they are lightweight, take a test. We also offer professional glass washers for rent.
The drying space:
Cups should ABSOLUTELY be dry before being stacked and stored. Moist, they become moldy and smelly. We would be obliged to charge you for washing.
Globelet's are slow to dry. So plan time and space. The method of a pyramid of cups seems to be the best option, but beware of drafts.
Drying is less simple than it seems: polypropylene did very little caloric inertia (compared to glass or metal). So we cannot rely on the heat stored in the dishwasher.
If you have technical constraints to your event, do not hesitate to contact us. We'll help you find a solution.
