Restrict the use of disposables

This petition had 25 supporters

It is unfortunate that the problem of huge amounts of disposable tableware such as plastic/paper cups, bowls etc ending up in bins is not seen as a serious problem by many of us. I believe the lack of regulation over when any of the shops including small shops are allowed to use disposables, and when to use reusables even at small coffee places is allowing every company to choose the easier option of using these paper/plastic cups, in order to avoid the cost of employing people for the purpose of cleaning. I understand it's a convenient option to throw away after using instead of cleaning it for reuse, however it only proves how selfish the shop owners and the people have been. Considering the number of paper/plastic cups we all use everyday, we can make a huge difference by bringing the numbers down where and when we can. My plea here is to make the shops use reusable facilities where they can and make the use of disposables as the last option. Don't you think a cup of coffee served in a proper mug tastes way better than a coffee from a plastic leached cup?
