Starbucks has built an empire off its signature green straws, plastic-lined cups, and the global “to-go” culture. Now, the ocean is paying the price for Starbucks' corporate waste.
Scientists have projected that the ocean will have MORE PLASTIC THAN FISH by weight by year 2050. Starbucks' gross overproduction of single-use plastic items is a major contributor to this global crisis.
While Starbucks is aware of its role, the corporation has yet to take any measurable action to reduce its plastic waste and continues to serve its iconic paper cups that are nearly IMPOSSIBLE TO RECYCLE due to their plastic lining. Each year Starbucks serves over 4 BILLION of these plastic-lined cups and that number continues to grow.We are running out of time to save our ocean, it’s time to demand that Starbucks #breakfreefromplastic and take action to curb its #StarbucksTrash.
