This in from the OCA:
Starbucks uses more than 93 million gallons of milk per year, according to 2011 figures (and the company has only grown since then).
That’s enough milk to fill 155 Olympic-sized swimming pools.
Too bad it’s not organic.
Starbucks likes to tout the fact that since itstopped selling milk that contains Monsanto’s rBGH growth hormone, it uses “GMO-free” milk.
That may be true. But by its refusal to switch to USDA certified organic milk, Starbucks is promoting the GMO agriculture model—because dairy cows are fed a steady diet of GMO feed, including corn, soy, alfalfa, and cotton seed.
