Target: Starbucks CEO, Howard Schultz
Goal: Convince Starbucks to only serve organic milk in order to protect the health of it’s consumers
Starbucks is America’s largest coffee chain which serves millions of people everyday in sixty-two different countries. Since there is such a large amount of people consuming their products, the leaders of this major corporation should take into account the health implications from consuming their products. It has recently been shown that there are many detrimental effects of consuming milk that is sourced from cows fed genetically modified organisms (GMOs). Many other companies have decided to make the switch and provide only organic milk to consumers and it would be in the best interest of everyone if Starbucks did the same.
If Starbucks were to switch to organic milk, it would keep its consumers from ingesting the harsh chemicals that are used in industrialized farming. These chemicals are starting a new wave of sicknesses called “superbugs” that are antibiotic resistant and can sometimes be fatal. Although GMO milk is banned in most countries due to the high amount of negative health effects including carcinogens, it is still widely used in America and that needs to be stopped immediately.
Once it became known that GMO milk was detrimental to human health, many customers stopped buying products from Starbucks. “Consumers are increasingly looking for organic milk. I stopped drinking Starbucks lattes once I found out the health implications of consuming non-organic milk. Starbucks would be surprised to see how many more customers would start visiting their stores if they started serving it,” said Vani Hari, creator of FoodBabe.com. If Starbucks were to serve organic milk, it would be in the best interest of everyone. More customers would be satisfied and the company itself would be making more money in an honest fashion.
Sign the petition below to urge Starbucks to make the switch to organic milk. It would be in the best interest of everyone and would help reduce the amount of GMO toxins and chemicals to which humans are exposed.
Dear CEO Schultz,
Starbucks is the largest American coffee chain and you are globally renown for excellent quality and service to your customers. Your company reaches people in sixty-two different countries with over 20,000 locations. That means there is a very large number of people who are consuming Starbucks around the world and that should be reason enough to care about the health and safety of your customers. Even though Starbucks uses organic soy milk, customers should also have access to organic dairy milk.
It has recently been shown how detrimental the health effects of GMO milk are and Starbucks should take responsibility and keep its consumers from being exposed to it. Your company is known for providing high quality goods and services to your customers so it should be only natural that these same customers also receive high quality milk.
It would be in the best interest of your company and its consumers if Starbucks were to make the switch to organic milk products. Many people would be happier and feel much safer if they knew that they could trust what they were being served. This would be good for your company as it would bring in more lifelong customers.
Please consider the use of only organic milk and milk products throughout all Starbucks locations world-wide. It would be beneficial for you and all of your customers.
[Your Name Here]
