Delish is reporting that Starbucks is testing a paper cup fee at select locations in an effort to become more eco-friendly:
This month, 35 London outposts began charging a five pence fee (equivalent to about seven cents, as of press time) to anyone who ordered their drink in the chain’s standard cardboard takeaway cups. The trial will last three months, and stats from the period will be used to determine if the practice encourages people to bring their own travel mugs. Baristas will offer those drinking their coffee in the store a ceramic cup, cutting down on paper while lending a more independent cafe vibe to the coffee giant’s shops.
