Changes continue to brew at Starbucks, and this one will affect the cup that your morning coffee comes in. 

The coffee giant is testing compostable cups. This won’t change the outward appearance of your cup, but it will change the inside. Starbucks is replacing that plastic liner with a biodegradable one. 

They are being served at locations in cities including New York, San Francisco, and Seattle. 

In another push to go green, Starbucks also announced that their strawless lids will appear in all U.S. and Canadian stores over the next year.
