Partner with vendors to charge a tax for getting disposable foodware (e.g. 10 cents for a styrofoam container and plastic utensils, 5 cents for biodegradable utensils) or provide discount for bringing reusable things (e.g. get 5 cents off for bringing your own coffee cup, plastic container, or utensils).

Ideally lead towards banning styrofoam and taxing disposable foodware (similar to the Cambridge Bring Your Own Bag Ordinance that's going into effect on March 31).
