MAP is taking great strides to reevaluate the use of plastic and start using more sustainable, environmentally friendly materials for its various brands. MAP through one of its major brands, Starbucks, has been a long proponent of a more sustainable lifestyle. Recently Starbucks launched the trial of “Greener Nusantara” movement to create a strategic approach to support the government and local authorities so everyone can contribute toward a more sustainable future. Greener Nusantara highlights that all Starbucks Bali stores since 1st October 2018 has been using new ‘greener’ materials. The much discussed single use plastic straw has been replaced with a durable paper straw, whilst the plastic stirrer is now made from wood. Additionally, the plastic cups used for cold and iced drinks has now been replaced by cups made from r-PET based components. Under the Greener Nusantara move, Starbucks Indonesia will also test the recycling program of waste ground coffee into compost by collaborating with local compost crafters in Bali which will be the pilot project called “Grounds For Hope”.
