What is the Starbucks policy on plastic straws?

In an effort to reduce plastic waste and promote sustainability, Starbucks has implemented a policy to eliminate single-use plastic straws from its stores worldwide. The company has been phasing out plastic straws since 2018 and has introduced alternative options like paper straws and strawless lids.

Starbucks has also introduced initiatives to encourage customers to bring their own reusable cups and introduced a $1 reusable cup program in 2019, offering customers a reusable cup for $1 which can be used for drink purchases and then reused on subsequent visits.

Overall, Starbucks has taken a number of steps to promote sustainability and reduce its environmental impact, including eliminating plastic straws from its stores, promoting the use of reusable cups, and implementing recycling and composting programs in stores.
