Starbucks: Be a partner to us and forests!
Starbucks serves 4+ billion nonrecyclable papers cups a year. That’s 8,000+ cups a minute cut from more than a million trees!
In 2008, Starbucks set a bold goal of serving coffee in recyclable cups and increasing the amount of coffee served in reusable cups (from 2%-25%) by 2015 but, they haven't delivered. Starbucks needs to recommit to this goal. We want a #bettercup.
Why is this important?
Starbucks paper cups exact a huge toll on our forests, our climate, and landfills -- and the majority of coffee-addicts and baristas still don't know it's happening! I'm a current barista and sustainability is important to me -- and I bet other partners agree. By signing and sharing this petition, we can send our message far and wide. Become a #BetterCupBarista right now.
Starbucks has emerged as the industry leader in caffeinating the world, and therefore has a duty to its customers, as well as past and present partners, to do so in a socially and forest-friendly manner.
How it will be delivered
Stand.earth has committed to delivering this petition directly to CEO Kevin Johnson at Starbucks Seattle headquarters for us!
