All Tim Hortons cups for hot drinks will come with recyclable cardboard sleeves soon and you won't be able to ask for double cups anymore.
In November, Tims is ending the practice of double cupping steaming hot beverages to make them easier to hold.
You'll get a cardboard sleeve instead that's made from 100% recycled material and is 100% recyclable itself.
when double cupping will no longer be allowed
Starting on November 4, Canadian locations will stop double cupping and only give people those recyclable cardboard sleeves.
This is expected to eliminate more than 200 million cups a year which is equivalent to wrapping half of Earth's circumference with Tims cups.
Last year, the retailer was found to be one of the biggest plastic polluters in Canada for the second year in a row.
