Environmental concerns
 
At last someone is talking sense. When you go to a coffee franchise how many people are using 'disposables' even in the shop. Disgraceful, I always ask for (and get, no hassle) 'normal fincan'.

'Latte Levy': Government should introduce 25p charge on disposable coffee cups to cut waste, say MPs | The Independent

25p is not enough 50p would work

If the coffee franchise was not to tight to wash a the Fincan [cup]. We would not have this problem in the first place all to do with profit .

If you ask for one they will not refuse. I think it is more the 'image' of being like what they have seen in the US that is the reason for the disposables. I don't use them in the UK, but have never had a problem here in Turkey at all.

Unfortunately plastic cannot be un-invented but there really must be a solution to all the waste, especially in our oceans. I heard quite a good thing on the Radio yesterday morning. A football club, somewhere in the U.K used to serve pints of beer in thin, cheap plastic containers and the cleaners were sick of picking up all the litter after the games. The solution - the bars were offering study plastic glasses with 1.00. deposit, returnable when customers were finished with them. Those left behind were quickly picked up by the local children and at a 1.00. a throw was a good way of making a bit of pocket money.

5.75 TL in our local Starbucks for a medium (bloody large) filter coffee, beats wandering round Migros with the missus any day of the week.

thanks for the translation. I totally agree but originally they were catering for takeaway trade, now they still use plastic to drink in house. This should be banned.
