Plastic-free compostable cups for Parish Walkers

MannVend hopes to reduce waste and cut carbon footprint

MannVend is providing plastic-free water cups to this year's Parish Walk entrants.

The company will use Vegware compostable cups, which are made from plants, to hand out drinks to walkers taking part in this year's race.

The firm says the Isle of Man's biggest mass participation sporting event provides an opportunity to show the Island's commitment to reducing plastic waste and the carbon footprint.

More than 1,600 people have signed up for the event, which gets underway at the NSC at 8am on Saturday.
