NEWS: Starbucks Challenge Stats

My good pal and fellow Starbucks Challenge Starter, Siel, has done a stats update over at GreenLAGirl. We are now upto 331 challenges with 209 blogs participating! Wahoo! Thanks to you all for joining in...and thanks to all new challengers for keeping up the pressure. It ain't over people...we are just being nice and giving Starbucks plenty of time to get with the programme and deliver on their promise to serve Fairtrade coffee to anyone who requests it etc.

Siel's report makes for interesting reading. Starbucks clearly are committed to offering Fairtrade in all their stores as they promise although why the Fairtrade success rate is going down is anyone's guess. Still, at least Starbucks write huge CSR reports talking about how much they love Fairtrade. Priorities people!
