    Are you asking about using non-plastic cups for home use or for a café or restaurant?

    The cups that are used for hot drinks are excellent for cold drinks, too. I sometimes bring some 16 ounce hot cups home from work to use for cold drinks, (soda, iced tea, etc.) especially when I know I will be having guests stop by. Many people have remarked that they like the idea of using the non-plastic cups. Plus, the hot cups tend to keep the drinks colder longer, and they don't sweat from condensation as much as the plastic ones do.

    I don't know of any cafes that use non-plastic cups for cold drinks. The plastic cups are clear, and most people like to see the ice cubes and the colors of their cold drinks, especially when they have iced coffee drinks, and they're mixing milk into them.

    In cafe situation, they should serve cold drink in a glass cup, if they want to drink in the cafe.
    but for to-go, they should offer some sort of discount when a customer brings in his own cup. without own cup, i guess paper cup should be fine.

    Maybe in developing countries...

    The whole idea of disposables is to stay away from used. Customer's own cup is used, isn't it? How can you make sure it's clean before you touch it and then touch others with the same hands?

    Maybe it's OK 50 years ago, because people don't travel and goods don't ship much at that time. So if you pass germs around, the worst case is you may kill people in a whole town. So nobody cares. But now things are completely different, virus can travel through continents in no time. So everything is global now.

    We only need one such incident to stop "bio-friendly" stupidity.
