Lisbon wants to eliminate the use of throw-away plastic cups.

As of 2020, the Portuguese capital bars and restaurants will be banned from giving patrons beverages in single-use plastic containers.
The measure is one of a set of ten measures that Lisbon will be implementing under a new version of its Urban Waste Management, Hygiene and Cleanliness strategy.

Waste generation in Lisbon grew ten percent from 2015 to 2018, largely due to tourism.
