Dunkin’ Donuts recently announced that it has met its target (that was set two years ago) of transitioning from polystyrene foam cups to paper cups across all of its restaurants across the world.
In Dunkin’ US restaurants, the foam cups have been replaced by double-walled paper cups. The chain reports that it is also on track to fully transition to new, recyclable hot coffee cup lids in all of its US restaurants by the end of this summer.
The new cups are made with paperboard certified to the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) Standard and are currently used to serve all Dunkin’ hot beverages.
Dunkin Donuts does note that while a limited number of restaurants may still have foam cups in their inventory, the company’s distribution centers are no longer offering foam cups, making only the new, double-walled paper cups available to Dunkin’ US franchisees for use in their restaurants.
