If you take the time to examine your personal buying habits closely, it’s rather obvious that those buying habits are based on decisions – informed or not. Most would agree, decisions are one of the more familiar ways we create our personal world. Yet somehow, there is often a big disconnect between how our little world decisions interface with and help create the larger world we share with others.
Often we are forced to reexamine our habitual choices in the light of new information or based on negative experience. Thankfully we all have the ability to redirect our power of choice by simply reconsidering the decisions we have made including where we spend our dollars. If Starbucks is on your favorites list, it’s past time to reconsider that choice and perhaps redirect your dollars elsewhere. Read on to find out why.
“In the past 2 years alone, Starbucks has been a part of a GMA-led coalition that has donated more than $70 million dollars to defeat GMO labeling efforts in California and Washington State. By opposing GMO labeling, Starbucks has willingly climbed in bed with Monsanto and the GMA and is intentionally misleading customers about their commitment to “sustainability” and “ethical sourcing”.” 
Let’s start with an update from the “GMO Inside” Campaign to get GMOs out of Starbucks’ dairy products.
On March 4, 2014, Green America’s GMO Inside announced the launch of an anti-GMO campaign aimed to pressure Starbucks to stop using milk sourced from cows raised on GMO feed. So far the campaign has sent an impressive 150, 505 letters to Starbucks through the combined efforts of GMO Inside, Food Democracy Now!, Organic Consumers Association, and Friends of the Earth.
You can take action now by sending your own letter or the template letter to Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz, urging them to use only GMO-free organic milk in all their stores.
