During the pandemic, Starbucks suspended its use of reusable cu[s as a safety precaution. Starting on June 22nd, reusable cups will be allowed in Starbucks shops again but it will look a little different!
Their plan is to reduce single-use cups when possible and they are also bringing back the promotion that offers customers $.10 cents off their drink when it's served in a reusable cup.
For now, their new plan will only launch in-store only and accepts clean cups from customers. They will plane their cup in a ceramic mug and keep their lid. The baristas will pour the drink in the reusable cup, only touching the ceramic mug before handing it back to the customers.
Are you happy about this?
