If you are a hot coffee fan of Dunkin' Donuts, this will affect you.

It is getting more and more rare to spot any coffee place that still uses styrofoam. Although it's a great source of insulation and keeping your coffee hot, it's awful for the environment.

So Dunkin' Donuts says they will stop using the foam cups by 2020. They estimate that by doing so, they will eliminate a billion of the foam cups each year from the waste stream of things that don't break down and deteriorate.

The cups will no longer be found anywhere. They are being completely phased out globally at all Dunkin' Donuts in favor of double-walled paper cups. (Which works just fine for Starbucks.)
