DISCOUNT FOR BRINGING OWN CUP TO STARBUCKS
The coffee shop chain Starbucks will give customers a discount if they bring their own cups. It wants to cut down on the number of paper cups that are put in the trash. It is part of a two-month trial in cafes in England. Starbucks wants to reduce waste and recycle more. The vice president of Starbucks UK said: "Starbucks is committed to increasing recycling rates and reusable cups are a key part of our overall waste reduction strategy." Bosses will decide later if they will continue the discounts. Customers who bring their own cups will not get a discount on the cafe's cheaper filter coffee.

TYPEWRITERS TO STOP RUSSIAN COMPUTER LEAKS
