Starbucks Corp., the world's largest coffee-shop operator, began selling reusable plastic cups for $1 at its U.S. and Canadian stores. And I don’t see this working at all in locations which are drive-thru only with no cafe or lobby at all. I recognize that idea might turn off some customers if you don’t trust that it has been adequately sanitized. Some communities readily recycle our paper and plastic cups. Reusable cups are an important component of our overall waste reduction strategy. To learn more about our work in encouraging the use of reusable tumblers read our Global Responsibility Goals & Progress Report.

Starbucks is committed to reducing our cup waste.

You’ll notice the mugs are much more prominently displayed near the POS in our new store designs. Starbucks reusable 16oz coffee cup with lid, $1 and 1.6oz/44g.

Starbucks Reusable 3 Hard Plastic Venti 24 oz Frosted Ice Cold Drink Cup With Lid and Green Straw w/Stopper 4.7 out of 5 stars 1,132 $14.70 $ 14 . The set includes 5 reusable hot cups with fun Halloween saying’s like Witch’s Brew, Siren Potion, Freshly Brewed, Dark Roast, Hot Off The Cauldron, and Goblin Juice. Let me explain how it works: The Starbucks in University Village is the perfect location for this. We are working as a member of the Foodservice Packaging Institute’s Paper Recovery Alliance and the Plastics Recovery Group to bringing solutions to scale and address common challenges. In January 2013 we launched a $1 reusable cup in the U.S. and Canada, and a £1 cup in the United Kingdom in April. While we’ve sold reusable mugs and tumblers for years, what makes this new cup exciting is that it’s yours for only US$1. Step 3: When you have finished your beverage, return the cup to the cup retrieval machine.

A key point is that you can’t receive the $1 back without returning the cup. Since 1985 we’ve rewarded our customers with a discount when they bring in personal tumblers, and we have a goal to serve 5% of the beverages made in our stores in tumblers and mugs brought in by our customers. Use your Starbucks card to pay for your drink. You do not retrieve your $1 back until you return the cup. However when you pick it up, you can feel that it is sturdier and weightier than a single use cold cup. In an attempt to reduce their customers’ waste, Starbucks is introducing a reusable plastic cup for frequent customers. This program is only available for limited sizes: The grande and venti sized cold beverages, and tall, grande, venti sizes for hot beverages.
