Make Starbucks Cups Recyclable

Did you know that Starbucks coffee cups ARE NOT recyclable?! Some estimates say 4 BILLION Starbucks cups are thrown away each year.

Starbucks is working on a recyclable cup and has been for some time with little urgency. The company has also complained that implementing a successful recycling program at its 24,000 stores around the world is harder than one might think.

The Seattle-based company said its net income for the fiscal fourth quarter of 2016, ended Oct. 2, rocketed to $801 million, up 22.8% from $652.5 million. That helped boost fiscal year net income to $2.8 billion, up 2.2% from $2.7 billion last year.

Starbucks does a lot of great things for its employees. They are doing well financially and remain an industry leader; it's time they stepped up and did something for the environment.
