    Default If you like double D cups...major change ahead

    ...
    At Dunkin? Donuts, a thick-walled foam cup keeps your hand cool while your coffee stays hot.

    Not for much longer. This week, Dunkin? announced plans to insulate their beverages in a more environmentally friendly way. Beginning this spring, the company will eliminate the polystyrene foam containers they currently use in favor of a new, double-walled paper cup, a move that's expected to remove 1 billion foam cups from waste streams annually.

    I like it.

    I don't use the cups at the store anyway....bring my mini thermos.

    +1 to both of FFZ's comments

    Is it just me or does this seem an unusual thing for ol Bob to post?

    Good idea. The whole plastics thing is due a radical change.
    Iím condescending, that means I talk down to people.

    While we are on the topic, some people may not know but word is that recycling is not the answer with single use containers like water bottles for example. Reusable containers like Jim illustrated are vastly superior. And styrofoam is bad any way you look at it afaik.

    My local DD has been using paper cups since it opened over 20 years ago. Styrofoam had already been banned. We've had the double DD cups since lady summer or fall. The town also banned plastic bags few years ago.

    I'm with Jim. Why look for things to pay for? I fill my own water bottle and coffee mug when I leave the house. Saving money and doing the right thing. A no brainer.

    I always have a jug of water with me, but sometimes it's hard to resist a DD iced coffee. Never too cold for an iced coffee:
