Starbucks Accepts Reusables: Drive-Thru & Mobile Orders
Now, at Starbucks in the U.S. and Canada, you can bring your own cup when you order in-store, at the drive-thru, or through the app.
This goes for all Starbucks locations. Since most folks grab their coffee on the run, this change is a chance for you to use your cup and helps Starbucks cut waste by half by 2030.
Michael Kobori, Starbucks' sustainability leader, sees a future where everyone uses a reusable cup. He says giving customers more options to use their cups is a real step forward. Starbucks knows their customers care about the planet, and now, however you order, you can join them in being eco-friendly.
Starbucks is the first national coffee spot in the U.S. to let you use your cup for mobile orders. In Canada, they are the first to let you do it for any drink and size in mobile orders.
This is part of Starbucks' bigger push to get folks to use reusable cups and say goodbye to single-use plastics. They want it easy for you to bring your cup every time.
Kate Daly from Closed Loop Partners, a group focusing on reducing waste, points out that bringing your cup is a big step in cutting down on single-use packaging. Starbucks is a leader in this—they are the first big national store to let you use your cup for any order, including mobile ones. The NextGen Consortium, also into waste reduction, cheers on Starbucks as a founding member and supports their work for a world with less waste.
