Latte Levy on Single-Use Cups in the UK

As reported by the BBC, Telegraph, Sky and other media channels, a 25p latte levy should be introduced on single-use coffee cups to cut waste, UK MPs have said. The plan is being considered by ministers amid calls for a complete ban on all single-use cups by 2023 unless manufacturers can make them recyclable.

The UK throws away 2.5 billion paper cups every year, with many consumers believing they are being recycled when less than 1 per cent actually are.

The rest are incinerated or buried in landfill sites because they have an inner-lining made of plastic which paper mills struggle to remove.

The Environmental Audit Committee is calling on the UK Government to introduce a minimum 25p charge to cut waste in the same way the plastic bag levy has done in supermarkets.

UK MPs also called for a target to be set by the UK Government to ban all non-recyclable coffee cups by 2023 and increase charges for companies which do not invest in materials which can be reused, as in other countries.

As these articles show there is simply NO EXCUSE FOR SINGLE-USE.
