Starbucks Fair Trade Campaign

Mmm

An interesting campaign from the Organic Consumers Association to pursuade Starbucks to stop using ‘crappy hormone filled milk’.

The time has come to kick rBGH off the market, once and for all. If Starbucks, a major buyer of milk, were to reject rBGH dairy products, we could effectively eliminate it from the market.

Similarly, while Starbucks has slowly bought more certified Fair Trade coffee, it represents only a very small percentage of their total coffee (about 3.7%). Starbucks rarely offers certified Fair Trade coffee as their coffee of the day, nor has it followed its own policy of brewing Fair Trade coffee, on demand.

Kinda fits with my earlier Starbucks post..
