Fairplex is the home of the annual LA County Fair in addition to hundreds of unique events year-round. And during these events, our food and beverage partner, OVG Hospitality, is serving thousands and thousands of guests delicious menu items and refreshing drinks – especially beer!
Recently, OVG Hospitality led the initiative to introduce new cups to use when serving beer. These cups are rPET, which stands for “recycled polyethylene terephthalate” and are made from 100% recycled materials. According to the manufacturer, rPET cups use 79% fewer greenhouse emissions and less energy overall. This means that rPET cups have under a quarter of the carbon footprint than standard PET cups.
Fairplex prides itself on being socially responsible and reducing our impact on the environment. As a matter of fact, Sustainability is one of Fairplex’s five guiding principles that steer important business decisions. And just this year, Fairplex recycled more than 14 TONS of waste after the 2023 LA County Fair!
So the next time you’re at a Fairplex event, make sure to stop and grab a beer in one of these new cups and feel good knowing that you’re helping the environment! 🍻
