The Canton company replaced its signature cup with a double-walled paper version at five Brookline locations Monday. The swap is taking place in anticipation of the town's Dec. 1 ban on the use of disposable polystyrene, better known as Styrofoam, in packaging for food and beverages at food service establishments.
"It's a little cheeky, but we can't use foam, so we made a paper cup that looks like foam," said Scott Murphy, Dunkin's chief supply officer. "We worked with a design agency to actually mimic our foam cup and make it an easy conversion for the consumer."
