BOSTON (AP) — The Dunkin' coffee chain said customers will have to do without a "double cup" for their iced drinks.

A new campaign focused in Massachusetts and Rhode Island told customers they can no longer nest their iced drinks in a second, foam cup for extra insulation as the company moves to eliminate its polystyrene cups.

The brand said the double-cup habit was started in New England and is most common there. However, by Dec. 1, all the region's stores will swap foam cups for paper ones that the company said are more environmentally friendly.

New ads tell customers the "double cup is breaking up" because the chain's relationship with foam isn't sustainable. Cold drinks are being marketed as "iced, delicious and single."

The company said its foam cups will be eliminated worldwide next year.
