Starbucks will serve 4+ billion disposable paper cups this year —8,000 cups a minute. That's four times the weight of the Brooklyn Bridge.
In 2008 Starbucks promised that by 2015 it would use only 100% recycled and recyclable cups, and serve 25% of its drinks in reusable mugs. But, today, forests around the world are still destroyed to make Starbucks cups.
Seattle - This morning, Starbuck’s launch of its annual holiday cup was met with concerned citizens and activists dressed as reindeer delivering a 12-foot tall Holiday Cup to the Westlake Center Starbucks at the corner of Pine Street and 4th Avenue. The activists had an additional delivery: they handed out disposable paper cups that, unlike Starbucks’ cups, are recyclable in standard recycling facilities. Currently Starbucks cups are not recyclable almost anywhere because of their plastic lining.
