starbucks challenge

this has nothing to do with knitting, but it does have to do with being vegan...

siel at green LA girl has been doing a great job of challenging starbucks to live up to its promise to french-press a cup of fair trade coffee for anyone who wants it. please check out this letter to starbucks and consider signing on.

i haven't been participating in the challenge because i am lucky to have access to independent cafes that serve fair trade organic coffee, and i'd rather patronize them than starbucks even if starbucks did serve fair trade coffee. but if you live in an area where starbucks and other chains have a near monopoly, please consider joining the challenge. it's easy! all you have to do is go into starbucks and ask them to french-press a cup of fair trade coffee for you, and then report the results.

After a bad experience with Starbucks (given cow milk after asking and paying for soy milk, I gave my boyfriend the latte), I avoid it as much as possible.

Maybe I will go see if I can get a cup of fair-trade coffee though, which means that I will need to find a Starbucks amid all these Dunkin Donuts!

even here in Toronto, they never have their fair trade option available.' i also choose to go elsewhere (mainly make coffee at home where i KNOW it's fair trade) but i'm glad to hear that people are starting to tell Starbucks to act what they speak.
