Dunkin' is officially dumping styrofoam cups in a "conscious un-cup-ling"

By

Last year, Dunkin' Donuts announced plans to ban styrofoam coffee cups globally by 2020. Suddenly, 2020 is just a few weeks away, and Dunkin' has finally phased out the landfill-clogging cups from nearly all of its stores. By Dec. 1, 2019, all Dunkin’ restaurants in New England will be 100 percent transitioned to paper cups, according to a Dunkin' press release; by April 2020, the transition will be complete worldwide, as per CNN.

Due to the double-cupping trend that many Dunkin' customers are fans of, this will not only take styrofoam out of Dunkin's supply chain, but also reduce the number of cups being used by half, in what Dunkin' is calling a "conscious un-cup-ling." Baristas will wear “The Double Cup is Breaking Up” pins this week to celebrate the new single status of Dunkin' cups.
