Starbucks Going Green

Guess how many paper coffee cups are used in the US annually?

3 billion!

The good news is that Starbucks is hoping to reclaim a good portion of that number.

PSFK reports that Starbucks is currently testing a nine-week program in New York City in which all 86 locations have 'just-for-cups' recycling bins. The program started in September and we're hoping it works.

And it gets better -- USA Today reports that each new company-owned Starbucks will be LEED Certified.
