If you are a Starbucks frequenter, then you are probably well aware that they offer a 10-cent discount for those who bring in their own cups. Effective immediately, the Starbucks policy has been suspended in efforts to help prevent the spread of coronavirus. They have also updated their cleaning procedures at cafes, and have cancelled all business-related travel.
For those of you who enjoy the savings on your morning cup of joe, the offer is still available. You may bring in your own cup or request “for here” ware for the discount, but your drink will be prepared in a paper cup. This new standard is temporary, but the change to their environmental stewardship program will be ongoing until further notice.
