Today, onJuly 7, OCA, GMO Inside and other concerned groups are asking their members to call Starbucks and ask them to switch to buying organic milk.
Starbucks is the largest retail coffee chain in the world. That makes it one of the biggest supporters of Big Dairy factory farms.
What’s wrong with the Big Dairy factory farm model?
Everything. Animals are abused. Food safety is compromised. And dairy CAFOs (Confined Animal Feeding Operations) support Monsanto’s toxic, unsustainable GMO corn, soy and alfalfa.
Need help with what to say when you call Starbucks? Here’s a sample script:
“By serving conventional milk from cows fed a diet high in GMOs, Starbucks is supporting an unsustainable food system that only benefits biotechnology and agrichemical corporations. I hope that Starbucks will be a leader in environmental and social responsibility by sourcing its milk from cows raised on organic, non-GMO animal feed.”
Starbucks has listened to consumers before. In 2007, the company stopped using milk from cows injected with the artificial growth hormone, rBST.
Will they listen this time? Only if enough of us speak up.
TAKE ACTION: On July 7, Call Starbucks (800-782-7282). Ask the company to switch to organic milk!
