New Cups for Starbucks

Posted: Updated:

Attention coffee lovers, Starbucks has a New Year's Resolution for you... kick the habit of using throw away paper cups!

According to USA Today, starting today, the Seattle-based coffee chain will start selling one-dollar reusable plastic cups to cut down on the waste.

The eco-friendly cups will look similar to the paper version, bearing the Starbucks logo. 
Starbucks already gives a 10-cent discount if you bring in your own cup for refills. 
They'll do the same for the re-usables.  The cup pays for itself after ten uses. 

Also, USA Today reports Starbucks will clean the re-usable cup with boiling water for you before each refill.
