Let’s get behind this initiative and sign the #petition Repost from @5gyres “ @starbucks has been a leader in promoting the global “to-go” disposable coffee culture, and the company doesn’t pay enough attention to where its trash is going. Each minute, the equivalent of a garbage truck full of plastic ends up in the ocean — more than eight million tons every year. Starbucks cups, straws and single-use items like plastic utensils are a huge part of this litter. Starbucks is opening 1 store every 15 hours in China, which means the company will only become an even bigger part of the global plastic pollution problem. Starbucks paper cups are lined with plastic, and most paper mills cannot adequately separate the plastic from the paper. Let's get @starbucks to go back to offering in house cups, make all to-go cups 100% recyclable, and disrupt this corporate giant from putting too much plastic into the environment! STAND UP TO #STARBUCKSPLASTICTRASH Visit www.5gyres.org to sign the Change.org petition we will be presenting at their shareholder's meeting in March!
