Starbucks And McDonalds Team Up To Create A Compostable To-Go Cup

It's easy to grab your favorite latte in the morning on the way to work then throw the cup away as soon as you're done, without considering the environmental impact that one single cup has on the planet. Though they're major competitors, Starbucks and McDonalds are coming together to design a new recyclable, compostable to-go cup to make our morning coffee run a little more eco-friendly. They plan to launch the sustainable cup within the next three years.

“There are certain things we’d say that we’re not competitors on. We all have to come with solutions and make sure we’re watching out for the public’s interest. This is something that we see as kind of similar. It’s a societal issue, and there’s a way that we can come together, not as competitors, but as problem solvers. We can use our collective scale to make a difference,” Marion Ross, the McDonald’s chief supply chain officer in the U.S., told Fast Company this week.
