Instead of getting take-away in a plastic-lined cup with a plastic lid, why not use a flask?
Flasks keep cold things cool, and hot things hot.
I was originally going to talk about taking your reusable coffee cup. BUT, a few weeks ago, I asked for my coffee to be served in my reusable cup and was refused, on the grounds of Covid 19.
So, in this case, carrying your own is reliable, convenient, and safe.
If you want to make a small change, take the lid you recieved, and use that as much as possible.
I generally refuse lids when I order,and it mostly works. I was able to get my flasks filled at shops in Quebec, but not all countries operate the same.
Asking politely with a smile often goes a long way.
I bought this flask second-hand in Quebec City 3 years ago.
