Imagine an event without disposable food cartons and cups filling the bins. We bring you DISHrupt™ from Sustainable Queenstown.


Disrupting our dependency on disposables, DISHrupt™ provides onsite solutions to events, through the provision of reusable dishes and cups. In its first year, DISHrupt™ displaced the use of 50,000 disposables by providing reusable dishes.

You may have seen DISHrupt™ at Luma, Queenstown Winter Festival, IronMan, and Searchlight Brewery and now we are now bringing our initiative to your events! Plus, if you're planning an event at Memorial Hall, DISHrupt will be suggested to you for a hiring option.

By hiring DISHrupt™ for your event, not only will you be helping in the fight against disposable servewear, you will also help spread awareness of the awful environmental impact of single-use items.

Available DISHrupt™ items for your event:

  • 790 metal plates – 24cm diameter
  • 180 metal side plates – 20cm diameter
  • 100 metal cups (more available on request)
  • 70 reusable plastic tumblers
  • 200 forks
  • 200 knives
  • 200 spoons
  • 100 teaspoons

You can DISHrupt™ your event with a donation of $0.50 per item, with a minimum donation of $100 per hire through our Givealittle account. DISHrupt™ is offered by Sustainable Queenstown, a not-for profit tackling sustainability challenges in the district. Your donations will go back into making positive social and environmental impacts our community.
