Starbucks Rolling out Reusable Plastic Cups

Starbucks Takes A Step Towards A More Affordable Sustainable Culture

Whether this is a smart marketing ploy from the Seattle base coffee giant or a true effort to help consumers move towards becoming more environmentally conscious, Starbucks will be rolling out reusable cups starting today, any customer who brings the cups back for a refill receive a $.10 discount. The cups cost $1, making it a lot more affordable compared to the $20 Starbucks coffee travel mugs.

It might not be a huge discount but it is a step towards consumers becoming more environmentally conscious.

During the past few weeks researching and blogging for my Demystifying Our Food Series, I’ve really been more conscious of the food I consume and how it is consumed. No, I am not a tree hugging hippie, I am inspired by the people that continues to go the extra mile when producing or purchasing sustainable food, ensuring that we as consumers continue to have access to healthier options.
