Starbucks responds to ‘latte levy’ with 5p cup charge to cut waste

Ben Webster, Environment Editor

January 5 2018,

 

Starbucks will test the impact of a 5p charge in 20 to 25 London stores.

A charge on disposable coffee cups is to be imposed in Britain to address the problem that only a tiny proportion is recycled.

Starbucks will test the impact of a 5p charge in 20 to 25 London stores in a three-month trial starting next month, the first time any coffee chain has required customers to pay extra for a cup.

The company announced the charge after learning that the Commons environmental audit committee would recommend today that the government introduce a minimum 25p “latte levy” on disposable cups.

A report by the committee says that disposable coffee cups should be banned unless almost all are recycled by 2023.

 

 

 

And the EU ? – they don’t give a  toss about anything unless money is the prime motivation.
