Starbucks welcomes reusable cups for drive-thru and mobile orders in U.S. and Canada

Sustainability

Starbucks Coffee Company now allows customers at all U.S. and Canadian company-operated and participating licensed stores to use their clean personal cups.

Effective immediately, customers can opt for reusables when ordering in the café, drive-thru, or via the Starbucks app. This milestone offers a significant opportunity for customers to choose sustainability, supporting Starbucks' commitment to a 50% waste reduction by 2030.

Starbucks is the 'first' U.S. national coffeehouse to allow personal cups for mobile orders, while in Canada, the option extends to all drinks and sizes. This move is part of Starbucks' larger cultural shift toward reusables, making it convenient for customers to use their personal cups during every visit.

Customers at participating U.S. and Canadian stores receive a $0.10 discount for using any clean, personal cup, with Starbucks Rewards members in the U.S. earning an additional 25 Bonus Stars.

With a 30-year history of championing reusable cup options, Starbucks continues its commitment to sustainability through ongoing trials and initiatives globally.

Michael Kobori, Starbucks chief sustainability officer, said: At Starbucks, we envision a future where every beverage can be served in a reusable cup. Offering customers more options to use a personal cup when they visit Starbucks marks tangible progress towards the future. We know our customers are passionate about the planet, and now, they can join us in our efforts to give more than we take, no matter how they order.
