We knew it would be a matter of time before Starbucks changed up how you get your iced mocha or latte. And you can thank the pandemic for it. Instead of your regular plastic straw, Starbucks will start using the ‘sippy cup’ lid for it’s iced beverages.
Though we shouldn’t be too surprised. Starbucks announced in 2018 that it planned to start phasing out plastic straws from all its stores by 2020. So, here we go. Bye-bye boring straws, hello hip sippy cup lid. The modified plastic lid with a drinking spout has already made it’s debut and will likely be on your next order of cafe latte.
