I was eating lunch with some friends yesterday, and we
noticed how much waste we accumulated just during our simple lunch. One of the
major items being the single use cups for our drinks. As we sat there, we
discussed what could be done to have a certified reusable cup that one could
bring in to any fast/fast like food place to use. Understanding, of course,
that there would be a fee for the drink, but one that is less than what is
As the resident environmentalist in the group, I was tasked
to find out if this idea has been explored before, what are the issues
surrounding it, etc.?
Thank you for any information you might have on this idea.
