Starbucks Challenge 3.0 – Sign the Letter

starchall.jpgGreen LA Girl and City Hippy have been enjoying some great success in getting Starbucks’ attention with regards to the “fair trade” coffee issue. It is Starbucks’ policy to offer fair trade coffee to anyone who asks for it, but by and large, havn’t been able to deliver much when Starbucks around the world were asked for it.
The challenge works like this:
1) Pop into a Starbucks and ask, specifically, for a “Fair Trade” cup of coffee.
2) Observe what happens and send a report to Green LA Girl orCity Hippy.
Now, the challenge has been extended to include a letter-writing campaign – click here to hop on board! This is consumer action at its best.
