I took this photo outside a local Starbucks. Why don’t they offer a recycling bin for just the plastic cups?
“Garbage and recycling bins, water filtration systems, shipping pallets, sheeting and automotive battery casings are just a few of the products that can be made out of recycled polypropylene.” (Source.)
Starbucks has said they are committed to the environment. But they are not committed to recycling — at least in my part of Colorado. C’mon, big guys — step up and do this — all over the USA, at least.
And here’s the beauty of feedback… I linked to this post on Facebook, and a friend reminded me of a great action in response to Starbucks’ failing. We can help them. Bring your own mug or cup!
