Environmental group slams Starbucks over non-recyclable cups in this funny video

One other day, one other Starbucks cup controversy.

However this time, critics of the cup aren’t attacking Starbucks for its supposed liberal agenda. They’re taking a stand to protest the wastefulness of the cups.

Stand.earth, an environmental non-profit, launched a video that accomplishes a uncommon two-pronged victory — calling out unhealthy habits from a company and making enjoyable of hipsters. It options Spencer, an inexplicably scruffy chap who loves Starbucks cups as a result of of their ephemeral nature.

“It will possibly’t be re-used, it will possibly’t be recycled, it exists for one second in time and it exists only for me,” he says.

The video was created by Erika Share, former Senior Editor at The Onion and Anthony Easton, former managing editor of ClickHole.

It takes about 20 years for the standard paper cup to break down and nearly all of Starbucks cups are usually not comprised of recycled paper. Starbucks has agreed to check a brand new type of recyclable espresso cup in the U.Okay. however Stand is hoping its #bettercup marketing campaign can expedite issues.
