Made from Plants not Plastic!


As a company DB Max are very eco-conscious and over recent years have researched ways that we can help our environment and reduce our carbon footprint.

DB Max are advocates of the three R’s: reduce, reuse, and recycle. We dispelled with plastic carrier bags at our event finish lines around four years ago and feel that no matter how small or insignificant our actions may seem, they do make a difference and do matter.

So, we are incredibly happy to announce that we have just taken delivery of 20,000 event drinking cups which are made from natural, renewable plant materials and can be composted together with organic food waste after use. They have been independently certified 100% compostable by leading European and US authorities. DB Max have been increasingly concerned with the volume of plastic cups and bottles used at our events each year and even with us recycling as much as possible, this change in our business practices, represents a significant positive in reducing our carbon footprint.

So DB Maxers, look out for our new environmentally friendly water cups at all our events and the special green bins. These will be located at the finish and any used cups at our water stations will be collected by staff and transferred into the bins. Join us in helping to positively shape our environment!
