Tell Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz: Switch to Organic Milk!

Starbucks uses more than 93 million gallons of milk per year, according to 2011 figures (and the company has only grown since then).

That’s enough milk to fill 155 Olympic-sized swimming pools.

Too bad it’s not organic.

Please sign our petition asking Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz to switch to organic milk!

Starbucks is the largest coffee chain in the world, with 20,100 stores, and annual sales of $14.9 billion.
Imagine the impact a company that size could have on the organic milk industry. And the role it could play in ending the abuse and unhealthy practices rampant in factory farm dairies.

Starbucks likes to tout the fact that since it stopped buying milk that contains Monsanto’s rBGH growth hormone, it uses “GMO-free” milk.

That may be true. But by its refusal to switch to USDA certified organic milk, Starbucks is promoting the GMO agriculture model—because dairy cows are fed a steady diet of GMO feed, including corn, soy, alfalfa, and cotton seed.

That’s an unhealthy diet for the animals. And an unsustainable model for agriculture.

Please join GMO Inside and the Organic Consumers Association in asking Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz to switch to organic milk!
