Starbucks makes reusable glass options available in Japan

The glasses are made of resin and come in two sizes.

Dine-in customers now have the option to use reusable in-store glasses for their drink orders.

The new option is part of Starbucks' commitment to reducing waste to send it sends to the landfill by 50% by 2030.

The reusable in-store glasses are made of resin and come in two sizes, which are designed to serve any iced beverage from short to venti. In addition, customers can continue to make small changes for a big impact by bringing their personal cups for to-go orders or choosing mugs for hot drinks when dining in-store.

“This is a very significant step in the shift towards reusables, and the fact that these options are now available across Japan is very meaningful. Many of our customers have agreed, and we are beginning to see results that exceed our expectations. We expect that as warmer seasons approach, the use of in-store glasses will increase. We look forward to working together with our customers to provide their favourite beverage while reducing waste,” said Daisuke Furukawa, director, of Sustainability & Purchasing, Supply Chain Division of  Starbucks Coffee Japan.
