Starbucks Introduces Plastic Cups Available for Re-Use


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.
