Dunkin’ says goodbye to foam with global transition to paper cups

The sustainable change is expected to remove 8,618 tonnes of polystyrene from the waste stream annually

Dunkin’ has announced a 100% global transition from polystyrene foam cups to paper cups in its coffeehouses and restaurants.

In the company's US restaurants, the foam cups have been replaced by double-walled paper cups, which by the end of the summer, will come with recyclable hot coffee cup lids as well.

It says the transition to paper cups will remove approximately one billion foam cups from the waste stream annually - combined with the change to recyclable coffee cup lids, this will remove a collective 8,618 tonnes of polystyrene from the waste stream annually.
