Starbucks has a goal to develop a comprehensive recyclable cup solution by 2012. Today Starbuck´s cups can only be recycled and composted in some communities – far from all. Therefore they have now initiated a cup-recycling program in cooperation with Global Green USA´s Coalition for Resource Recovery. It´s a pilot to test the collection and recycling of coffee cups when combined with old corrugated cardboard, which should be the most extensively recycled material in the U.S. They are looking over the entire system; material usage and design of cups as well as logistic and how to collect them after usage. Pratts Sustainable Design Incubator has helped them with the guidelines. It´s great that a big company like this is investing in this and hopefully giving new opportunities to the entire coffee shop market. Read more on Greener Package
