Why and How We Use Eco Tokens
Since the 1st of January Belgian law states that at least 90% of all waste on events needs to be recycled. In order to meet the criteria of this new law, we worked out a recycling system by using eco tokens.
WHY DO WE USE THIS
We chose for the 'eco token' model because the alternative would be using reusable hard cups which would be much more time consuming at the bars and we don’t believe that hard cups are that eco friendly at all.
All cups and bottles need to be returned at the bar because dirty cups that came off the floor are considered to be general waste and can’t go into the recycle stream.
All our cups and bottles are already made from recycled materials and will be fully recycled again.
We collect them in recyclable garbage bags which will go into designated containers that are brought to specialized recycling facilities.
The eco token, which you get from free when entering the event, can be considered a deposit for the recycling.
As long as you bring back your empty bottle or cup, or trade them for an eco token you can use it instead of an empty bottle or cup when ordering a new drink.
It doesn’t cost you anything extra and don’t forget, you are keeping the venue clean and help us recycle, so that’s an awesome contribution for a cleaner environment.
So despite what some people might claim: the eco token system is NOT a profit model for us as an organization, on the contrary.
