Starbucks discontinued its policy to allow customers to bring their own cups of coffee to the COVID-19 pandemic last year to prevent the spread of the virus. Customers are still not allowed to bring their cups to the store. The series instead partnered with Go Box and picked up the cups used to clean them in less than 48 hours through its own “Borrow a Cup” initiative.

The chain says that a reusable cup replaces 30 disposable people, explaining that the effort is part of its ongoing plan to cut waste by 50% by 2030.

Starbucks says it is also partnering with Seattle-based Ridgewell, a company that will collect reusable and hard-to-recycle items from people’s homes to make it easier to reduce waste.
