In March 2018, Starbucks committed to bring a recyclable and compostable paper cup to market within three years. A week later, Stand.earth announced the next phase of its #BetterCup campaign, challenging several coffee giants — McDonald’s, Dunkin’ Donuts, Costa, Tim Hortons, Peet’s, and Caribou — to “meet or beat” Starbucks.

The movement to stop climate change comes in many shapes and forms, including our work to stop deforestation — preventing trees from being cut down just so they can be turned into single-use items like coffee cups that are used once and thrown away.
That’s why in 2016 Stand.earth launched the #BetterCup campaign calling on Starbucks to make a coffee cup that can be more easily recycled. And on March 20, 2018, after a two-year campaign and pressure from thousands of customers, Starbucks finally promised to deliver a recyclable and compostable paper cup by 2021.
