As many moms out there, I am a huge fan of coffee. I drink (on average) 2 cups a day and look forward to my first sip of the morning. Sometimes, I’m so tired at night, I fantasize about that first sip. Ha! But there is something that could potentially jeopardize our access to coffee. It’s called coffee rust fungus. It’s a fungus that attacks the tree leaves and causes them to fall off.
This could not only affect our access to our favorite morning drink, but it could potentially affect the farmers growing the coffee, too. That’s where the Starbucks® One Tree One Bag campaign comes in:
- For every bag of Starbucks® 10-12z & 20z Ground or Whole Bean coffee purchased at participating Albertsons Company stores in the U.S. from May 1st through May 28, Starbucks, through its partnership with Conservation International, provides one disease-resistant coffee tree to a farmer in Mexico, Guatemala or El Salvador.For each bag sold, Starbucks will donate 70¢ to Conservation International – the average cost of a tree – to foster thriving coffee communities.
- To learn more, visit conservation.org/onetree.
I think this is totally awesome for the coffee farmers in South America and for our beloved coffee! We have always believed Starbucks can – and should – have a positive impact on the communities we serve. One person, one cup and one neighborhood at a time. I love that this conservation project is easy for me to participate in because Starbucks® Pike Place® Roast is my favorite coffee. It’s the coffee that originally got me to fall in love with my morning (and afternoon) cup of joe.
You can pick up your bag of Starbucks Pike Place at your local Albertsons or Safeway store, making it easy for you to pitch in on the conservation effort!
Here are some other ways you can practice conservation:
- Bring reusable bags with you to the grocery store
- Use refillable bottles instead of bottled water
- Participate in a local clean-up for your city or state
- Think before you print and use less paper
- Take shorter showers
- Use energy-efficient appliances
- Install a drip system in your yard
- Recycle your bathroom products (toilet paper rolls, shampoo bottles, etc.) – these are often overlooked
