Petitioning Starbucks Starbucks: Stop Supporting Chicken Abuse!

Sign the petition Starbucks is supposed to stand for more than just coffee. It claims to care deeply about its community and social issues. Yet Starbucks doesn’t extend this care to the millions of egg-laying hens suffering in its global supply chain.

Starbucks refuses to end its support of farms that confine hens in tiny, filthy cages. These cages are so small and packed with birds that the hens can’t do anything that is natural or important to them. Often, their body parts are caught in the caging, which results in fractured or broken bones, deformities, and severe feather loss. Some hens, exhausted or unable to move, are trampled to death by their cage mates.

Hundreds of companies around the world are ditching cages. Global commitments to end cruel cages are being made by some of the largest companies in the world, including General Mills, Unilever, Nestle, Lidl,  Aldi, Wyndham Worldwide, InterContinental Hotels, Aramark, Sodexo, Mondelez, and Compass Group. Even low-end fast food companies and US prisons are moving away from this horrible practice. Starbucks, however, has failed to join this movement towards better treatment of animals globally.

In its mission statement, Starbucks states: “Now we see that our responsibility – and our potential for good – is even larger. The world is looking to Starbucks to set the new standard, yet again. We will lead.” Starbucks has fallen behind on animal welfare. The world is now looking to Starbucks to meet basic animal welfare standards and to lead the global restaurant industry in abolishing some of the worst factory farm abuses.

Please sign this petition to tell Starbucks that you won’t be purchasing any of its products as until it stops supporting this egregious animal abuse. r0  ·  Manage your email preferences  ·  Privacy policy
