Amid criticism, Dunkin’ moves to replace foam cups

The Dunkin’ Donuts foam cup is so familiar to coffee drinkers — sold millions of times every day — that it even appears in the company’s logo. But Dunkin’ customers may soon find themselves drinking their coffee out of something new.

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.
