08 Sep Support to the company Ecocup® for the ecodesign of reusable event cups
RDC supported Ecocup® in the ecodesign of reusable cups for events through an LCA study, the design of an Instant LCATM tool and the organisation of workshops.
Ecocup®is a French social economy company that rents and sells reusable cups in France and around the world for events (festivals, sporting events, etc.).
Ecocup® is committed to continuous improvement in order to promote the circular economy and to offer various solutions adapted to different sectors of activity.
In 2019, RDC Environment conducted a life cycle assessment (LCA) study at the request of Ecocup® to compare the environmental impacts of its reusable polypropylene (PP) cup solution against disposable cups made of different materials (PP, polystyrene (PS), polyethylene terephthalate (PET), and carton).
In 2020, Ecocup® chose to use the Instant LCATM web tool solution created by RDC Environment in order to be autonomous in the evaluation of the environmental impacts of its cup sales and rental service.
Following this study, RDC Environment organised participative and creative ecodesign workshops to support the Ecocup® teams in their approach and to identify, prioritise and select the ecodesign options to be implemented.
A good example of progressive support to an ecodesign approach.
