Starbucks Coffee, TEA, and Spices…
Hi, my name is Suzanne and I am the Brand Manager for Tazo Tea here at Starbucks. I’ve been lucky enough to have been a part of Tazo now for about seven great years. Tazo was started by a guy named Steve who wanted to “pull the doily out from under the tea cup” and introduce a whole new generation of tea drinkers to the captivating world of tea. His goal was to breathe new life into this ancient beverage, which (back in 1994, anyway) he felt held little interest to most Americans.

Recycling in Starbucks Stores, an Update
Hi, my name is Sue, and I work in Global Responsibility on environmental impact. I've written about recycling and wanted to give you an update. We are developing our program for next year, and you will be seeing some exciting things! First of all, we have reviewed our recycling status - currently 70% of the North American stores where we manage trash are recycling behind the counter already. Early next year, we are going to survey the stores where we don't manage trash to find out how many of them are already recycling.
