Starbucks: Change from Plastic to Compostable

To be delivered to Howard Schultz, CEO

Petition Statement

Switch from plastic to compostable drink cups and straws.
There are currently 23,884 signatures. NEW goal - We need 25,000 signatures!

Petition Background

There are thousands of Starbucks stores in the world, and every day, millions of people people buy cold drinks in plastic cups with plastic straws and throw them in the trash. This creates thousands of tons of plastic waste per year, contributing to our mounting global pollution and climate change problems - even when the plastic is recycled. I love my iced coffee drinks, and I would like to enjoy them without feeling guilty about waste!
