Public Support for Disposable Cup Levy

Let’s do this ! And then next single use packaging for lots of other Single use items. A great step in the right direction. We did it with plastic shopping bags. We can do this!

A new poll has indicated there is widespread public support for the introduction of a 20c levy on disposable cups, with more than 70% of respondents saying they think the waste reduction measure is a good idea. Like the plastic bag levy before it, the 20c so-called ‘latte levy’ aims to encourage people to carry a reusable cup instead, and their takeaway coffee will be 20c cheaper if they do.
