Starbucks said that it will begin using the strawless alternatives in Seattle and Vancouver stores by this fall, and expand to the USA and Canada, followed by other global locations, in fiscal year 2019.
By the fall, all cold coffee beverages in Seattle and Vancouver will be served with the same strawless lid now offered for the cold brew drinks.
Starbucks said the conversion will be complete by 2020. Ice-blended Frappuccinos, meanwhile, will be served with straws made of paper or compostable plastic. Vancouver will become the first Canadian city to do so in the fall of 2019.
Straws are a small contributor to the overall plastic problem, but they are an easy target since most people don't require a straw to consume a beverage. Similar proposals are being considered elsewhere, including NY and San Francisco. McDonald's said earlier this year that it would stop using plastic straws at all of its stores in the United Kingdom and Ireland.
