Can your cup in a cup

Oct 17,2018
Starbucks Korea CEO Lee Seock-koo, third from left in front row, announces that the company will donate 100 million won ($89,000) toward installing and managing recycling bins for disposable cups during a ceremony held in front of the Starbucks Jongno R branch in central Seoul on Tuesday. The coffee franchise plans to donate 17 recycling bins shaped like Starbucks take-out cups to help collect and recycle disposable cups. The move comes after Starbucks signed a voluntary agreement with the Ministry of Environment earlier in May to cut down disposable waste and promote other green activities. [YONHAP]
