Become a part of our global campaign demanding Starbucks keep its promise to curb its impact on plastic pollution by signing the petition here.

Another impact you can make for this movement is to email the Starbucks CEO with a pre-written forum by simply filling your info here. The more they hear from us, the more they will be forced to take corporate responsibility for the 4 billion Starbucks plastic-lined cups that are trashed every year.

Join the social media storm with the hashtags #starbuckstrash & #breakfreefromplastic. It is up to the corporations to take responsibility toward upstream solutions, which we can enforce with social pressure from consumers like you.

with over 20 partnered ngos, we've compiled these demands for starbucks to engage FOR their 2018 annual shareholder meeting, march 21st in seattle.

1. Keep your 2008 promise & serve 25% of hot and cold beverages in reusable cups.

2. Reduce plastic pollution by eliminating single-use plastics like straws & stirrers.

3. Keep your 2008 promise & make a 100% recyclable cup without plastic lining.

4. Manage & recycle all cups & food packaging in all stores.

5. Report publicly on the type & amount of plastics used in packaging.

6. No global double standards. Sustainability goals include making the same progress in the Global South as in the Global North.
