Protest Starbucks

ABOUT THE CAMPAIGN

Support Fair Trade
After hundreds of OCA organized rallies at Starbucks around the world, and years of grassroots pressure, Starbucks announced in 2008 that all of Starbucks products are rBGH-free.
The OCA will continue to pressure Starbucks to increase its sales of organic and Fair Trade coffee, organic milk and start selling Fair Trade chocolate.

RECOMMENDED BOOKS

  • Organic Coffee
    Despite deepening poverty and environmental degradation throughout rural Latin America, Mayan peasant farmers in Chiapas, Mexico, are finding environmental and economic success by growing organic coffee. Organic Coffee: Sustainable Development by Mayan Farmers provides a unique and vivid insight into how this coffee is grown, harvested, processed, and marketed to consumers in Mexico and in the north. Organic Coffee refutes the myth that organic farming is less productive than chemical-based agriculture and gives us reasons to be hopeful for indigenous peoples and peasant farmers.
