We like to keep busy here at Stand.earth.

From calling on Levi's and Carnival Corporation to stop using fossil fuels to power their factories and ships, to pushing Starbucks and Charmin to incorporate recycled paper into their coffee cups and toilet paper, to fighting the expansion of fossil fuel infrastructure while championing a clean energy future across California, Washington, and British Columbia — we're always up to something.

My mom went on her first cruise a few years ago. She couldn’t wait to tell me all about it--the food, the outfits, the entertainment, the excursions.  She planned the trip for more than a year and was so excited to explore the world from a totally different vantage. I was incredibly happy for her, but dismayed that the very ship that brought her a new appreciation of the natural world is also putting our planet at risk.

There’s only one thing this obnoxious guy really values in this world. One thing that’s ‘pristine enough’ to pique his interest. It’s the (unrecyclable) Starbucks paper cup.
Starbucks Cups: Corporate stewardship or individual responsibility?

Hi and welcome to Starbucks! How would you like your coffee today? Would you like it with corporate stewardship or individual responsibility? Uhhh, how about both? We all need to do our part. When it comes to Starbucks, their part is to make a cup that’s recyclable so that the 4 million cups they serve a year don’t end up in the trash.

One of the things I love the most about working at Stand.earth is that we go toe to toe challenging some of the world’s largest companies to do better, to stop destroying forests, to address climate change, to not put people and our planet at risk. This is never comfortable – not for us taking on companies that have more revenue in a few hours than we fundraise in a full year. And it’s not comfortable for the companies we take on – who often want to do the right thing but have simply not prioritized it.

We don’t often talk about Presidential politics at Stand.earth, but the events of the last few days can’t be ignored. There is a great deal of pain in the United States and it exists on all levels with the election of Trump. Apparently climate change is a hoax and  our neighbors are to be feared, and hated, if they have brown skin. On women’s issues, it seems like we’ve landed somewhere back in the seventeenth century.
