Starbucks Call-In Day of Action
PLEASE CALL STARBUCKS TODAY!
Call Starbucks and ask the company to be a leader in its industry by providing organic dairy milk, sourced from cows not fed GMOs.
How? Call 800-782-7282 and share your concerns with a customer service representative.
When? Monday, May 19, 2014
Why? Starbucks listens to its customers: In 2007, consumer demand for milk free of artificial growth hormone led the company to stop sourcing its milk from cows injected with rBST (a great first step!). However, Starbucks’ dairy is still sourced from cows raised on GMO feed grown with increasing amounts of pesticides. By sourcing milk from conventional dairy operations that feed cows a diet high in genetically modified corn, soy, and alfalfa, Starbucks is supporting an unsustainable agricultural system that prioritizes profit of biotechnology corporations and processed food companies over farmers, consumers, and the environment.
Join us in calling Starbucks today and ask for a company-wide long-term commitment to providing organic milk from cows not fed GMOs.
“Hi, my name is [NAME] and I am in [CITY, ST]. I am calling today to ask Starbucks to provide organic dairy milk and stop sourcing milk from cows fed GMOs grown with increasing amounts of pesticides. Starbucks demonstrated its dedication to consumer preference by phasing out milk sourced from cows injected with artificial growth hormone, but organic milk is the highest standard of sustainability when it comes to dairy. By serving conventional milk from cows fed a diet high in GMOs, Starbucks is supporting an unsustainable food system that only benefits biotechnology corporations and processed food companies. I hope that Starbucks will be a leader in environmental and social responsibility by sourcing its milk from cows raised on organic, non-GMO animal feed.”
