Starbucks just announced something HUGE.
By the year 2020, the plan on being completely plastic straw-free!
According to their press release, Starbucks will "eliminate single-use plastic straws from its more than 28,000 company operated and licensed stores by making a strawless lid or alternative-material straw options available, around the world."
This is also a big deal because it makes Starbucks the largest food and beverage retailer to do such a thing and think it will eliminate more than one billion plastic straws per year from their stores.
If you've been to a Starbucks recently, you've probably noticed that they've been using the new sippy-cup lids for their cold brew and other cold beverages. They've already proven to be a great alternative.
Good on Starbucks for helping make our planet BETTER!
