Starbucks is going strawless!
Chances are you’ve probably already seen and used one of these “sippy cups.” Starbucks started testing these a year ago as part of an initiative to eliminate plastic straws from ending up in landfills.
These recyclable, lightweight strawless lids are made with less plastic and are easy to recycle. Expect your iced coffee, tea, espresso, and Starbucks Refreshers beverages to now be served using this lid.
If you’d still like to use a straw, just ask your barista. Straws will be available upon request.
“Recyclable, strawless lids for customers across the U.S. and Canada is another step in our journey to reduce our environmental footprint,” said Michael Kobori, chief sustainability officer at Starbucks. “As we move closer toward our 2030 target of a 50 percent reduction in waste sent to landfills, the long-standing history of innovation within Starbucks, partnership across the industry and changing consumer behavior remain fundamental to our purpose and our prosperity as an organization.”
