Starbucks has built an empire off its plastic-lined iconic white cups and the global “to-go” culture. And now our oceans are paying for it. By 2050, the world’s oceans will have more plastic in them than fish.

It’s time to tell Starbucks CEO Kevin Johnson directly -- don't trash our planet with plastic.
