From Coffee to Wildflowers
Starbucks has partnered with Evergreen for the past seven years by supporting Evergreen's Earth Day event in Vancouver and volunteering at many Evergreen events. But with a new national partnership, we're greening communities across the nation. Together Evergreen and Starbucks are encouraging people to "pledge to do some green" by volunteering or pledging to live greener (start a compost, or ride your bike to work!). Simply sign up on the Starbucks Facebook page and receive a free cup of responsibly-grown coffee. And Starbucks employees are actively involved themselves. So far this summer, 251 Starbucks employees have dedicated over 750 hours on a variety of activities including planting over 900 native wildflowers, saving over 50 trees and shrubs and removing approximately 100 large bags of invasive species!
