Instead of looking to produce more stuff, even though more sustainable, we must focus on no single use at all. We need to change our mindset that this is a disposable society. The biggest motivator is money! So my idea is a simple one: Charge significantly extra for taking a single use anything and pay less when bringing your own. The exact amounts would need to be determined, perhaps a percentage. But not a small amount like a CRV. A much more substantial amount that equals the devastation the product causes the planet and then some. For example, a 50 cent savings plus 50 cent charge on a coffee would equal $1 savings if you bring your own mug. Some people would not care to pay and this tax would cover infrastructure and the cost of more sustainable cups. It is kind of an optional tax as you choose to pay it if you don't bother to bring your own, but do not have to pay if you are being sustainable! If you use their dishes, no charge either way. The money made by this is not extra profit, but can be used to purchase more expensive sustainable products and the rest as a tax for infrastructure. If it is for food, and sanitation is an issue, they can first place the food on foil and drag it onto your reusable. Coffee shops can make in a reusable and pour. And of course you would need to bring your own straw or a separate, smaller fee would apply for that.
