Coffee chain rolls out reusable cups

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Starbucks is rolling out $1 reusable plastic cups at its cafes.

The Seattle-based coffee chain already gives customers a dime discount each time they bring in reusable cups for refills.

Now the company hopes the new cups, which bear its logo and resemble its white paper cups, will increase the habit.

As with other reusable cups, the new cups will be cleaned with boiling water each time customers bring them in.

The cups will be available starting Friday.
