7-Eleven's corporate website boasts that:
"The company operates, franchises and licenses approximately 7,600 stores in the U.S. and Canada. Of the more than 6,500 stores the company operates and franchises in the United States, more than 5,200 are franchised.
Outside of the U.S. and Canada, there are more than 35,900 7-Eleven and other convenience stores in Japan, Taiwan, Thailand, South Korea, China, Malaysia, Mexico, Singapore, Australia, Philippines, Indonesia, Norway, Sweden and Denmark."
Stores accumulate a lot of trash. Recycling is an option in many countries around the world, and should be utilized by a company so large. Consumers will recycle if you make it easy for them. You have the power to do the right thing for our collective future.
Take a lesson from Starbucks, which has placed recycle bins inside many locations across the U.S. If they can afford it, and impliment it, there really is no excuse for 7-Eleven.
7-11 Inc., I urge you to take immediate action and place recycling bins inside and in front of all stores wherever recycling is available.
