On Facebook: What can be done to encourage more people to take their own containers to food centres for takeaways?, Forum News & Top Stories
What about giving those who bring their own containers a discount?
We should focus on banning single use plastics but at the same time put in subsidies for environmentally friendlier single use items. One wouldn’t work well without the other!
I have tried whenever possible to bring my own containers, but I realise that it is just not practical in many instances because usually I am outside and not leaving from home to go and buy food, and very often I forget to bring the containers. Charging more will not discourage people from using the disposables.

I know of stores which will not accept customers’ containers, for fear of the hygiene of those containers (which could result in possible food contamination).
