Saving the world, one chai latte at a time?
Starbucks just announced it's rolling out free reusable cups to London's Gatwick airport. Customers can return the reusable cup once they're done with their drink at any of five drop-off locations throughout the airport.
Otherwise, if customers select the standard paper cup, they'll pay a small extra fee of 5 pence (about 6 cents) on top of their coffee bill. The program, which will involve 2,000 reusable cups, aims to eliminate 7,000 paper cups in the month-long trial, according to CNBC.
Airport employees will then collect the cups from the drop-off points, wash them and return them to Starbucks for reuse.
