The appearance of AYA, a startup specialised in lending cups, is expected to resolve the single-use plastic issue of coffee store chains. AYA was officially launched in August in Ho Chi Minh City Instead of bringing tumblers or using single-use plastic cups for takeaway drinks, customers can now borrow AYA cups for a deposit of VND50,000 ($2.17) which they can get back after returning the cups at 20 coffee stores that entered into co-operation with AYA. “Some customers told me that they found lugging along their tumblers every day inconvenient.
