Starbucks’ Move Away From Disposable Cups Is ‘Lip Service,’ Says PETA

Seattle – Below, please find a statement from PETA President Ingrid Newkirk in response to news that Starbucks intends to eliminate disposable cups by 2030:

Starbucks admits that the dairy in its drinks has a carbon footprint nearly four times bigger than its packaging, so if it wants to do more than pay lip service to sustainability, it’ll heed PETA’s calls to stop charging extra for eco-friendly vegan milks. After all, paper cups may be disposable, but the lives of cows and their calves should not be.

PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to abuse in any way”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview. For more information, please visit, listen to The PETA Podcast, or follow the group on X (formerly Twitter), Facebook, or Instagram.
