Starbucks #BetterCup Baristas Wanted

March 9, 2017

Hi, fellow Starbucks partner! I’m a Starbucks barista and I can’t keep this secret any longer. And, I need your help. You probably want to sit down for this one, because it’s a doozy.

You might have already noticed this in your own store but… you know those bins marked ‘recycle’ on them? The ones that fill up with our used white cups? Most people think that those cups get recycled but they’re wrong. In most places, paper Starbucks coffee cups aren’t recyclable! Shocking, right?
