Starbucks wants you to kick the habit of using throw away paper cups.
The Seattle-based coffee chain will start selling one-dollar reusable plastic cups to cut down on the waste, according to USA Today.
The eco-friendly cups will look similar to the paper version, bearing the Starbucks logo.
Starbucks already gives a 10-cent discount if you bring in your own cup for refills.
They'll do the same for the re-usables.
The cup pays for itself after ten uses.
Also, U-S-A Today reports Starbucks will clean the re-usable cup with boiling water for you before each refill.
