  1. because styrofoam is the devil. That’s the main reason. This is why they are going to an insulated hybrid cup made of paper with a sealer. A secondary (and more relevant to business sense) reason is that the styrofoam cups were bulky in shipping and you got approximately half as many of them in a box vs the plastic ones for the same cost. Now add to that the face that it’s actually pretty easy to punch a hole in one of them while using it (I’ve done it with a straw), and the fact that they weren’t actually waterproof and would leak through over the course of a few hours, that they simply shouldn’t have ever been made in the first place.
    Note that the plastic interim cups are basically not any better for the environment than the styrofoam ones.

  2. Hello!
    With the onset of COVID-19 back in March, My Franchise owner decided to make changes to the menu and the order of business to ensure that our limited staff could still make our customers happy while still being profitable. A few tweaks to the menu and a change or two to the amount of stuff needed to order, and there you go.
    Thank you for your patience, McDonald’s thanks you for your continued patronage.

  3. It is how the franchise make sure the loyalties are being paid in the most cost effective way in order to keep the business at its optimum. Notice those non-recycle foam for Big Mac are gone forever?

  4. Because they can? There’s no real reason for every single change and especially this is so small that I would have no clue knowing. Besides this I’ve only gotten 1 drink at McDonald’s.

  5. McDonald’s Corp. “We congratulate McDonald’s on its decision to stop using foam beverage cups, which will reduce the threat of plastic pollution to the world’s oceans and provide a more recyclable, valuable alternative in paper fiber,” Conrad MacKerron, As You Sow’s senior vice president, said in a statement.
