Starbucks Starts a NextGen Cup Solution

Starbucks Coffee started to develop a more recyclable and compostable hot cup that could soon save the environment by year 2022. The company announced recently about the details of a new and more continuous cup technology from the NextGen Cup. The cup made its debut at Starbucks locations in three big cites in the United States and two big cities from around the world.

New York, Seattle, San Francisco, London, and Vancouver already have the cup that is making an impact. The coffee company studied twelve models before collecting BioPBS liner. The new cup has impressive features that other plastic cups don’t have. The coating of the cup is made out of renewable material which is melted and spread on to paperboard before being used for the new cups.

The good news about these new cups is that they are recyclable and compostable. Which means Starbucks will no longer use plastic cup liners that adhere to paper cups.This prototype can reduce the amount of plastic that ends up in the oceans. Also, since the cups are recyclable, it helps the environment and keeps the planet earth clean.

Moreover, the coffee company may be seeking feedback from its employees and most important customers. They may ask whether the prototype cups keeps the coffee super hot and prevents leaking. Starbucks stated that customers who use the prototype will not notice the difference from the current cup.

Recently this year, Starbucks announced it was going to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions and the amount of waste it sends to landfills by half over the next decade. The company’s main goal is to have a more recyclable and composable hot cup solution in two years. Another aim is to conserve and replenish 5o percent of all the water it uses by 2030.
