Dunkin' Donuts Is Making A Major Change

(Canton, MA) -- Dunkin' Donuts is done with using foam cups.

The company announced today it's replacing them with a new, double-walled paper cup. There's been a push to get rid of foam because of environmental concerns to marine life and other animals that ingest it. The chain says it will begin phasing out foam cups in its global supply chain beginning in the spring. The targeted completion date is 2020.

Meanwhile, McDonald's announced last month it would use only recycled or other materials friendly to the environment for its soda cups, Happy Meal boxes and other packaging by 2025.
