WASHINGTON — In an effort to reduce single-use plastic consumption, The Anthem concert venue is rolling out a reusable cup called r.Cup. It is currently only available for the concerts on Monday and Tuesday.
Customers will pay a $3 deposit for the cup, which they can refill as many times as they want. At the end of the night, concert-goers can choose to keep the cup or turn it back in to get their deposit back.
The cup can be used for beer, soda and cocktail purchases, and there is no discount given if you use the reusable cup.
r.Cup, which launched in 2017, is looking to have their cups available at future Anthem concerts as well.
According to r.Cup, more than 5 billion single-use plastic cups have been thrown away at live events in 2019.
