It's reported a charge of up to 15 cent could be levied on disposable coffee cups in a bid to tackle waste.
According to The Irish Independent, Environment Minister is looking into the extra charge as a possible way of tackling the vast amount of cups currently sent to landfill.
Denis Naughten wants to encourage customers to bring their own reusable mugs to cafes when they're getting their cappuccino to go.
It's understood talks have already taken place with major companies including Insomnia and Supermac's.
The Green Party has already proposed laws which would ban non-recyclable cups altogether, but the minister believes that could be in breach of EU rules.
