Fion commented on optional single use tax

could not agree more. the environmental externalities associated with disposable cups should be added to the purchase price. for example, the Responsible Cafes initiative which offers the financial incentive for people to bring their own cup. Very easily adopted by cafes which is why they have over 4,000 participating cafes worldwide. But I agree with you, I suspect charging for the wastefulness would have a bigger impact. If single-use became too expensive it would be much easier to fund efficient dishwashing of durable reusable cups and more.

if a people just want to have a chill for a coffee, he has to bring the coffee and back home for collecting? Is it any recycling station or spot can be established for more convenient and can be set in the partnerships stores?
