Starbucks is taking health over the environment by temporarily stopping the reuse of personal cups and mugs.
The reason -- coronavirus.
But don’t worry if you’re being a friend to the environment just to snag the 10-cent discount. That will still be honored if you bring your favorite to-go cup but not use it. The reusable cup program, according to Starbucks’ website, started in 1985, but was ramped up in 2010 to help keep paper from to-go cups out of landfills, CNN reported.
The announcement was made in an open letter to customers.
Starbucks isn’t just worrying about its customers.
It’s also stopping business-related travel until the end of the month. Large meetings are being postponed or changed and there will be more cleaning at company-operated stores, CNN reported.
