RPC Tedeco-Gizeh Kenfig has demonstrated an innovative way of recycling plastic cups… by turning them into a wedding dress!


The dress has been created for Tracey Leahy, managing director of Mannvend, a member of the Associated Vending Association, which has a five-year contract with Kenfig to supply plastic cups.

David Lowe, general manager at Kenfig, says the idea came about during a conversation at the Association conference.

He explains, “Tracey mentioned that she was getting married and threw me a challenge of making her a wedding dress from plastic cups. Of course the creative team at Kenfig embraced the idea and got to work on the design.

“We agreed that if the dress could be produced then Tracey would wear it for part of her wedding day, in August. We are absolutely delighted with the result and for Tracey to wear the dress on her special day, really is testament to her love of the vending industry.’’

Tracey commented, “I’m thrilled that RPC Tedeco-Gizeh rose to the challenge and have produced such a stylish dress. It just shows how versatile plastic cups can be and how RPC will go that extra mile to keep the customer happy!’’
