An innovative way of recycling plastic cups has been founds – 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 – the UK’s largest independent vending purchasing group, 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.’’


Mannvend has around 30 staff and is located on the Isle of Man. The business was started by Tracey’s father Brian and as a result enjoys a well established reputation of service excellence with the vending industry. It supplies more than 5,000 refreshment solutions including hot drinks machines, can machines, snack machines and food machines on the Island, serving over 35,000 drinks a day.
