Starbucks Japan to sell reusable rubber straws


Starbucks Coffee Japan, Ltd. will launch the sale of silicone rubber straws at most of its stores nationwide on Wednesday as an effort to reduce plastic waste.

The reusable straws come in various colors with a wide diameter, making them usable for the company’s frozen drinks.

Each straw costs ¥990 and comes with its own carrying case and cleaning brush. The straws are also available for purchase online.

Since January 2020, Starbucks has been making a gradual switch from plastic to paper disposable straws.
