    I wouldn't work for a company with such harsh rules. What happens if you forget your lunch and have to buy something? Instead of being so cut and dry the employer should put their money where their mouth is by actually providing their staff with re-usable coffee cups, lunch bags and water bottles. If the employee then continues to bring in single use plastics then they could be disciplined, otherwise you're expecting employees to purchase these things, some of which can be expensive. By giving them to the employee the employer is practicing what they preach, plus it's a great way to advertise their company.
