Starbucks, in a July 9 announcement, said it is the largest food and beverage retailer to ditch plastic straws, a move that's expected to eliminate 1 billion such units each year.
Instead of straws, Starbucks will be implementing a "strawless" lid for all iced beverages.
Some Starbucks drinks, like cold brew with cold foam, are already served in cups with strawless lids.
To replace the straws, Starbucks also debuted images of its new strawless lids, which will begin to appear in Seattle and Vancouver locations this fall, with phased rollouts within the US and Canada to follow next year. A global rollout will follow, beginning in Europe.
Starbucks said the move will affect its more than 28,000 company-operated and licensed stores worldwide.
