    If you go to a buffet restaurant and see customers take their used plates back to the buffet table to refill, are you going to go back there again? I won't.
    I'm a firm/serious believer in sanitation, but judging people on that level is a bit much. FWIW I'm battling a life threatening illness along those lines. Not contagious, but I actually tell people I'm in contact with just so they're OK with it.

    Restaurants I frequent have high sanitation grades and mandate using a clean plate, bowl, etc. for every single trip to the buffet, salad bar, etc.
    I'm a legend among my own kind... you my friend are just a legend in your own mind. Later!

    Yes, that is something coffee shops are already doing and I think that that is admirable. It helps to lower the plastic we use every day. Someone here compared it with "that would be the same as bringing my own plates to a restaurant" - be real, is it really? Can you compare the wreckage that the elephant does in a porcelain shop to the damage that a fly do in the same shop? those are two different things. Besides - restuarants dont ask you to eat from plastic dishes, they reuse them after washing.

    IT is a big deal to rduce the plastic waste, every little helps. And plastic cups isnt a little thing.

    well said.
    someone said that "if all worms in our planet disappear, the earth will die in few years. Also, if all insects disappear, all living things will also die in a couple of years. but if all human disappears, the our planet will flourish."

    environmentally, we are getting to a point where we got to do something very positive for our earth. And using less plastic is one of the solutions.

    I would do a discount if someone brought their own thermos, and if my coffee shop sold thermos's- then I'd do the same or similar cost for a refill- if they had purchased one of ours.
    $14 for a thermos $0.50 a refill -or- bring your own thermos- $0.65 a fill for the same sized one. Something like that.
    That's fair.

    yes. I think that is a good idea.
    always it brings extra income to sell other coffee related products, such as cups, shirts, roasted beans of your own brand...etc
    if the customer buys a cup from you, perhaps you can give a couple of free coffee and then bit less refill charges.
    or if the customer wears your coffee shop/brand t-shirts, bit less refill also or extra discount on his/her drinks.
    it will be a good marketing.
