Earlier this year, we told you that Starbucks was working to diminish their carbon footprint by charging for paper cups at certain test locations. However, they are now taking it a step further by diminishing the need for straws altogether with their adorable sippy cups.
While the sippy cup was for Nitro Brews as customers to enjoy the foam that tops their Nitro drinks, you can actually order the sippy cup with any drink, and ditch the straws that contribute heavily to environmental degradation. In fact, in the United States alone, 500 million straws are used per day.
So, the next time you order a drink at Starbucks, why not ditch the straw and ask for a sippy cup instead! With environmental conservation, every little bit helps!
