march 21st, 2018 was the day of the starbucks annual general meeting.

We joined our partners on the ground in Seattle, & you showed your solidarity by taking direct action with us nationwide & around the world.

Thanks to earth activists like you, letters to Starbucks Managers were handed in at 40 locations in 6 countries outlining our coalition demands:

1. Keep your 2008 promise & serve 25% of hot and cold beverages in reusable cups.
2. Reduce plastic pollution by eliminating single-use plastics like straws & stirrers.
3. Keep your 2008 promise & make a 100% recyclable cup without plastic lining.
4. Manage & recycle all cups & food packaging in all stores.
5. Report publicly on the type & amount of plastics used in packaging.
6. No global double standards. Sustainability goals include making the same progress in the Global South as in the Global North!


Thanks to all our friends who have demanded corporate responsibility from Starbucks for a sustainable future. To keep up to date on future actions & how you can support the #BreakFreeFromPlastic movement, sign up for our newsletter & follow us on social media.
