Starbucks Announces New Details on Red Cup Day


Starbucks’ Red Cup Day, a highly anticipated event for coffee enthusiasts and holiday cheer spreaders, returned on November 16, 2023, for its sixth season.

This special day has become a hallmark of the holiday season for Starbucks fans, offering a unique blend of festive spirit and environmental consciousness.

The highlight of Red Cup Day is the free, limited-edition reusable red holiday cup given to customers who order a handcrafted holiday beverage. This eco-friendly initiative aligns with Starbucks’ goal to cut its waste footprint in half by 2030.

The 2023 edition of the red cup is made from 75% recycled materials, a significant increase from the 50% recycled content used in 2022. This step forward emphasizes Starbucks’ commitment to sustainability and reducing environmental impact.

Customers who received the reusable red cup can enjoy ongoing benefits, such as a $0.10 discount on their order whenever they bring their cup for a refill.

Moreover, Starbucks Rewards members can earn an extra 25 bonus Stars on future orders when they reuse their red cup, up to three times per day. These incentives not only encourage the use of reusable cups but also reward customers for their environmentally friendly choices.

The promotion applied to a wide array of holiday beverages, both classic and new. Options ranged from Peppermint Hot Chocolate and Pumpkin Spice Latte to the new Iced Gingerbread Oatmilk Chai, accommodating diverse tastes and preferences.

To cater to health-conscious customers, Starbucks also offered customization options, like nonfat, nut, or non-dairy milk alternatives and the choice to reduce the syrup content in the drinks.

Red Cup Day 2023 was a unique opportunity for customers to indulge in their favorite holiday flavors while contributing positively to environmental sustainability efforts.

The blend of festive joy and eco-consciousness made it a win-win event for both Starbucks and its patrons.
