A Note to Starbucks

I went to Starbucks with Charlie this morning. They do an amazing business. But the waste generated by their products is overwhelming. I decided to write them:

Dear Starbucks,
I really enjoy your coffee and snacks.
But I am REALLY concerned about the amount of WASTE, especially PLASTIC WASTE generated by your stores.
Can’t you make your plastic cups out of 100% post consumer waste?
That would make you a hero company.
Couldn’t you offer paper straws? That would make you a hero company, too.
Couldn’t you ENCOURAGE the plastic cups to be put in recycle? That would make you a hero company.
Couldn’t you find a way to make your paper cups recyclable?
Couldn’t you at least make your paper cups out of 100% post consumer waste (instead of a sorry 10%)?
You’re smart people. Couldn’ t you figure that out?
And, if you did these things, as an industry leader, you know other companies would follow suit, so your efforts would be multiplied.
PLEASE be a HERO COMPANY!
Please be a leader on this and make things better for earth.
