Auckland City Limits (ACL) and Globelet proved that a ONE DAY Festival can eliminated disposable cups. All drinks were pre-poured drinks with no limit on service time. The decision to go disposable cup free was not a small one. Massive infrastructure changes were necessary to ensure that festival had enough Globelet's on hand. With a mix of rental and ACL cups we made a truely disposable free ONE DAY festival.

“Big Day Out always opened with a beautiful field, which quickly became a field of plastic during the festival. Thanks to Globelet, Auckland City Limits remained a beautiful field as there were zero plastic cups on the ground” - Etienne Marais, ACL
