Sustainability, Social Justice, and Starbucks

Interesting story about Starbucks in today's Alternet:

I called Starbucks' corporate office and learned that only 6% (SIX) of the coffee purchased by Starbucks is organic/fair trade. The rep. told me they hope to raise that to 80% by 2013. Time will tell.

In the meantime, Coffee-loving consumers can have a voice in the matter. Give Starbucks a call, send an email, and most important: use your coffee dollars as votes for fairly traded, shade-grown and organic coffee.

Think critically and eat well,
