Starbucks New VIVANNO™ Cold Cups Reducing Our Environmental Footprint – One Cup at a Time
Take a closer look at Starbucks newest VIVANNO™ cold cups and you’ll notice something a little different. Traditionally, our cold cups have been made from the industry-standard Polyethylene terephthalate (PET or PETE) plastic. You can identify it by the #1 symbol on the bottom of the cup.

One cup doesn’t make much of a difference, but we sell … more »

Early on in the commenting and voting, our Idea Partners chimed in and shared Starbucks community investments focus areas which include young social entrepreneurs, social investments in coffee, tea and cocoa communities; and helping children get clean water through the Ethos Water Fund. As you can probably imagine Starbucks receives thousands of requests for so many worthy causes and we wish we could support all of them, but we are continually challenged … more »
