Nearly 900,000 people call for Starbucks to deliver on decade-old recycling pledge as protesters gather at AGM

Nearly 900,000 people have backed a petition calling for Starbucks to honour a pledge made a decade ago and develop a recyclable coffee cup.

Bolstered by this mounting consumer pressure, campaigners gathered at the company’s AGM in Seattle on Wednesday to protest and call for more environmentally friendly packaging from the coffee giant.
