The new lids are both strawless and recyclable. They are made from polypropylene, a type of plastic widely recyclable across the US and Canada. Straws cannot be recycled because of their size.
The new cups also contain 9% less plastic than the previous flat lid and straw.
Both company-operated and licensed stores will use the new cups for iced coffee, tea, espresso, and Refreshers.
The coffee chain will continue to serve iced drinks with whipped cream, such as frappuccinos, in cups with domed lids and a plastic straw.
Starbucks first announced plans for the strawless cups in 2018, when it said it would stop using single-use plastic straws globally by 2020. The company also plans to halve the amount of waste it sends to landfill by 2030.
Starbucks first got rid of plastic straws in Korea in 2018, where it introduced strawless lids and paper straws. These paper straws were introduced across the UK and Europe in 2019.
The company said it will continue testing more plastic straw alternatives over the next year, and hopes to roll out both these and the strawless lids in more countries.
