In multiple countries new rules are being introduced for disposable plastic cups and single-use food packaging.
In the Netherlands for example, the government agreed on:
From 1 July 2023: customers must pay for disposable plastic cups and food packaging when they collect food or drinks or have them delivered. And you need to offer an alternative that can be reused.
From 1 January 2024: if your customers eat or drink on your premises, you must not use disposable plastic cups and food packaging. Besides the positive impact on the environment, our reusable system is often cheaper than the single use alternatives.
