Starbucks is the largest coffee retailer in the world, sourcing 99% of its coffee sustainably to make coffee drinking guilt-free.
Currently, the company is testing out the use of a variety of greener cups that are both recyclable and compostable. It has also started using lightweight strawless lids in its bid to eliminate 1 billion single-use plastic straws annually. In fact, Singapore is one of the select cities to pilot and introduce these strawless lids for selected drinks and the use of compostable straws made of corn starch-based material.
Customers who bring their own tumbler or mug may even get a discount* for their favourite drinks.

Food For Tots is a self-service kids café that believes children can help themselves and others while positively impacting the world. It runs a series of programmes for children, such as Food Crafternoon and Nature Bingo Trail, to inspire them to be positive change agents.
Food For Tots draws influence from Jacob Ballas Children’s Garden’s mission to cultivate an appreciation for the natural environment by incorporating an upcycled colander light installation on its premises and adopting the use of sustainable cutlery, biodegradable plant straws and chemical-free bamboo napkins.
