McDonalds to switch to coffee paper cups

September 26, 2013

The oak brook-based hamburger chain says it is switching to paper cups for its coffee and other hot drinks.

Paper cups will replace the polystyrene plastic cups that are harmful to the environment.

The switch will not be immediate.

McDonalds says its transition to paper cups will occur over the next several years.
