So have you ever noticed the plastic lining inside your Starbucks cups? I drink it almost everyday and have noticed this before but 2 kiddos from Calgary did!
Mya Chau and Eve Helman, two grade 6 students from Terrace Road School, got the chance to attend the company’s shareholder meeting in Seattle a couple of days ago, and made some waves within Starbucks!
Change.org supported their trips as they got over 300,000 signatures on a petition asking Starbucks to change their cups!
Starbucks posted a whole thing on their website about it, but the company is looking to launch the NextGen Cup Challenge.
The NextGen Cup Challenge will award accelerator grants to entrepreneurs working to develop a more sustainable cup!
One of the coolest stories, and for two young girls being the ones to kick-start this makes it even better!
