NBC's is reporting on Starbucks's reuseable program. 

Starbucks has announced that it will start accepting personal, reusable cups for all types of orders, including drive-thru and mobile, at its company-operated and participating licensed stores in the U.S. and Canada. This initiative, part of Starbucks' commitment to reduce waste by 50% by 2030, makes it the first national coffeehouse chain to offer this option for mobile orders. Customers who use their own cups will receive a 10-cent discount on their beverage and, for U.S. Starbucks Rewards members, an additional 25 bonus stars. The process involves customers notifying baristas of their personal cups when ordering in cafes or at drive-thrus, and selecting the "personal cup" option in the app for mobile orders. This new practice follows a successful pilot program in Colorado and is aligned with Starbucks' vision of serving every beverage in a reusable cup, as stated by their chief sustainability officer, Michael Kobori.
