November 2022: Ireland Single Use Cup Levy consultation


Linking to:
Ireland Single Use Cup Levy
As with the introduction of a charge for carrier bags – it seems Ireland are determined to be first! After introduction in Ireland it was then adopted across the UK. The Cup Levy could taker the same path.
“The levy on single-use disposable cups is being introduced to incentivise people to choose to re-use. It will work in a similar way to the plastic bag levy. Under these regulations, consumers can use a reusable cup when buying a hot drink or pay 20 cent for a disposable one.”
The consultation closed on Friday 25th November.
