For years, the Starbucks cup has been iconic. The cups even include coveted limited edition holiday designs. But in 2022, any disposable cups just look like one thing... a threat to the environment. Starbucks is aiming for their stores to utilize a Bring Your Own Cup program by the end of next year. By 2025, they are hoping to implement a Borrow A Cup program. You would be able to drink coffee in stores from mugs that can be re-used by other customers.
The Borrow A Cup program would find customers paying a $1 deposit to use the mug and getting the money back after they return it to a smart bin.
