Starbucks has a Paper Cup and Recycling Problem

YEah, we all love a good cup of coffee. And yes, Starbucks brews a pretty decent, consistent cup of Joe. But did you know that out of the 200 BILLION paper cups that end up in Landfills every year, Starbucks contributes a whopping 3 BILLION?

Pick one up and do your part.
