Coronavirus: Starbucks bans reusable cups to help tackle spread
Starbucks branches have temporarily banned reusable cups in response to the coronavirus outbreak. The coffee chain said customers would still receive a 25p discount for bringing reusable cups with them, but drinks would be served in paper cups. Great Western Railway and LNER have banned reusable cups on trains - but GWR scrapped the policy after days. UK train operator LNER said it had stopped accepting refillable cups on its trains "To help prevent possible contamination from handling cups and lids". Greggs said there would be no changes to its reusable cup policy, where customers bringing their own cups received a 20p discount on drinks.
