Strarbuks, Stop Polluting Our Landfills with Your Lids

Starbucks Lid RecyclingNot very often do we sit down at a Starbucks. We're the 'drive-thru' kinda people, but not today.

Earlier today we went to a local Starbucks and sat down to drink our Mocha and Chai Tea. As soon as we were done I took our lids to the Barrista and asked her if they recycled them. She told me they did not and added "I know. I feel pretty bad about it."

Well, so do I. I know Howard Schultz is trying to clean up his company right now. I think it is time for Starbucks to really become an environmentally conscientious company too.
