Every year, 265 billion paper cups are thrown away. While the companies say they're recyclable, the truth is not so simple.
That's a lot of trees an a lot of plastic.
This week, Stand.earth wrapped up a 5-day protest at Starbucks Headquarters in Seattle as part of our #BetterCup campaign that saw visits from the beloved Cup Monster, an art installation of our Cup Wall, climate caroling with youth ambassadors with Plant for the Planet, and lots of engaging conversations with Starbucks executives and staff.
To date, we've protected over 65 million acres of forests from unsustainable logging and clearcutting. For the wildlife, for the climate, and for the healthy ecosystems we all need, support Stand.earth's work to protect the world's forests.
