CNY Dunkin’ Donuts Making Changes to How Your Coffee is Served
Dunkin' Donuts is cutting key items from their offerings, and this time, coffee lovers will notice a difference.
Dunkin' Donuts is committing to making a big change in how you get your favorite Dunkin' drink: the company has committed to eliminating all of their foam coffee cups and replacing them with double-walled paper cups by 2020.
In a press release, Dunkin' said the move "complements Dunkin’ Donuts’ earlier commitments in the U.S. to have 80% of fiber-based consumer-facing packaging certified to the Sustainable Forestry Initiative Standard by the end of this year; eliminate artificial dyes from its menu; build new, more energy-efficient restaurants; and partner with the Rainforest Alliance to source certified coffee."
Dunkin’ Donuts’ transition to paper cups will remove nearly 1 billion foam cups from the waste stream annually.
The new cups will come in four sizes: small, medium, large and extra-large. Dunkin' says not to worry, the cup will still feature the current re-closable lid that Dunkin’ customers know and love.
