Gatwick Airport has collaborated with Starbucks and Hubbub to launch the world’s first reusable cup trial.

Customers who visit Starbucks at Gatwick’s South Terminal will have the option to borrow a free reusable cup for their drink instead of the standard paper cup. Once used, the cup can be dropped off at one of the five ‘Cup Check-In’ points in the airport.

This scheme is part of a wider partnership between Starbucks and Hubbub to reduce single-use plastic pollution. Starbucks will be putting 2,000 reusable cups in circulation throughout the South Terminal, which will be collected, washed, and returned back to the store.
