Boycotts Starbucks

15 Nov, 2014

Young boycotts Starbucks due to their involvement in a lawsuit by the Grocery Manufacturers Association, of which they are a member, against the state of Vermont’s new law that requires all foods containing GMO’s to be labeled as such.

I used to line up and get my latte everyday, but yesterday was my last one. Starbucks has teamed up with Monsanto to sue Vermont, and stop accurate food labeling. Monsanto might not care what we think — but as a public-facing company, Starbucks does. If we can generate enough attention, we can push Starbucks to withdraw its support for the lawsuit, and then pressure other companies to do the same.
