Starbucks: Break Free From Plastic


Starbucks is part of the global plastic pollution problem: tell the coffee giant to stop trashing our planet with plastic!

Every minute the equivalent of one garbage truck full of plastic ends up in the ocean. Yet Starbucks has no plan to reduce its tons of plastic trash -- and continues to serve 4 billion plastic-lined paper cups per year, along with masses of single-use plastic lids, its signature green straws, and cutlery.

In 2008, Starbucks said it would serve a 100% recyclable paper cup and increase reusables to 25% by 2015. To date, it hasn’t done either.

Tell Starbucks to live up to its promises now.
