Since yesterday, the local government around the country started to crack down on the use of disposable plastic cups in coffee shops. If customers order a cup of coffee for takeout and then use a disposable cup in the store, the coffee shop owner will pay a fine of 50,000 up to 2,000,000 won in consideration of the number of crackdowns, the size of the store, and the number of visitors. The crackdown policy has already been reported to the national coffee shop owners through local governments.
Next time you go to the coffee shop, use a mug or a glass cup in the store. Whether you use a mug or a tumbler of any brand, you can use it in any coffee shop if you have a personal cup.
