UNITED NEWS INTERNATIONAL (UNI) — A worldwide coffee giant has joined other companies efforts to offer customers sustainable products and reduce toxic waste polluting landfills and oceans.

Starbucks announced on Monday, July 9, it aims to eliminate single-use plastic straws from over 28,000 stores globally by 2020.

The company will replace the straws with what social media has coined as an “adult sippy cup” lid, that features a raised lid and is recyclable.

Some drinks like Frappuccinos will still require straws.

However, the company will offer the drink with either compostable plastic or paper straws.

The change reportedly will help eliminate more than one billion plastic straws per year.

Starbucks joins McDonald’s and Hyatt hotels who are phasing out plastic straws in certain locations, but the coffee company is the largest to completely ditch the straws.

Recently, Starbucks invested $10 million in creating recyclable and compostable cups.
