Starbucks Is Testing Reusable Cup Program at London`s Gatwick Airport

Starbucks Is Testing Reusable Cup Program at London`s Gatwick Airport 1

The new trend is to save the planet with straws and cups that are reusable and earth friendly. The program that is being tested at Gatwick will involve 2,000 reusable cups and it aims to eliminate 7,000 paper cups in the month-long trial. Seven million cups are used at the airport annually according to a report on CNBC by Marc Rod.

In this current test, customers were given a choice in the South Terminal location to have a free reusable cup or pay 5 pence (6 cents) for a paper cup. If they do choose to use the reusable cups they can drop them off at a location before boarding planes in the terminal. Last year the UK Starbucks implemented a paper cup fee for all stores. The charge for cups is encouraging consumers to bring their own cups or use reusable cups in the future.

With the goal of saving 7,000 cups over the course of  a month, this program is applauded by many who are truly focused on environmental projects and saving money at the same time. This is a win-win project for all. We will be updating along the way.
