Pubs, hair salons and restaurants are all turning their backs on notes and coins in favour of contactless card payments
Companies are starting to refuse physical cash as payment as the digital revolution makes notes and coins obsolete.
Many firms around the world are beginning to shun cash in preference for a future dominated entirely by digital currency.
Chain restaurants Sweetgreen and Dig Inn in the US have already stopped accepting cash at nearly all of their locations.
The firms have joined many Starbucks and UK pubs in moving on from the paper notes and metal coins in favour of card and contactless payments.
