Default [BBC]'Latte levy' of 25p urged by MPs in bid to cut cup waste

[BBC]'Latte levy' of 25p urged by MPs in bid to cut cup waste
Full story:

MPs are calling for a 25p "latte levy" on disposable coffee cups - and a
total ban unless recycling improves.

A report by the Environmental Audit Committee says the tax should be
used to improve the UK's recycling and reprocessing facilities.

The MPs say throwaway cups should be prohibited altogether by 2023 if
they are not all being recycled.

In response, Starbucks said it would try out a 5p cup charge in 20 to 25
central London outlets.

"We will begin the trial in February and initially it will last for
three months," the firm said, adding that it continued to offer a 25p
discount to customers who brought their own reusable cups.

The government agrees plastic waste is a problem and will seek evidence
on a tax on single-use plastics.

'Revolution' needed
