If you love your coffee and helping the planet, you will love the latest news from Tim Hortons.
The coffee chain has announced customers will once again be able to bring their reusable cups to restaurants and through their drive-thrus, starting April 6th.
And for the first time, customers will be able to order cold beverages in their own cups! This includes Iced Capps, cold brew, iced coffees and iced lattes, lemonade and more.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, Tim Hortons paused accepting reusable cups in order to protect the health and safety of their team members and guests.
Now, starting Wednesday, customers will not only be able to use their reusable cups for both hot and cold drinks in restaurants and through the drive-thru, they will also receive a 10 cent discount for doing so.
“We’ve been looking forward to accepting reusable cups in restaurants again and have been working hard with Tims restaurant owners to ensure we do so safely and consistently – including with cold beverages,” said Paul Yang, Senior Director of Innovation and Sustainability for Tim Hortons.
“In 2019, we reduced our usage of single-use cups by serving nearly 15 million hot beverage orders in reusable cups. Now by offering the option of getting cold beverages served in reusable cups, the potential to reduce the use of single-use cups is even greater.”
If you are planning on bringing in your reusable cup to a Tim Hortons location, make sure it is clean and in good condition. Team members will not be cleaning cups or serving drinks in cups that are cracked or visibly damaged.
If you are ordering in a drive-thru lane, customers are asked to ensure they have a lid for their reusable cup.
