From Coffee Ground Takeaway Cups to Contactless Reusable Cups

 - Dec 20, 2018
With the zero waste movement inspiring environmentally minded consumers to ditch single-use plastic, many consumers are investing in refillable water bottles and reusable coffee mugs for on-the-go use. While these kinds of products have been available in cafes and retail shops for years, their familiar designs are being updated with alluring features like scratch-proof exteriors, collapsible forms and even the ability to make contactless payments and stand in for one's wallet.

For this year's holiday season, Starbucks—which is famed for its iconic holiday takeaway coffee cups—released a collection of disposable cups, as well as a limited-edition reusable red cup design that has the potential to keep consumers warmed by comforting hot beverages season after season.
