    At A Local Starbucks

    Thursday, January 27, 2011

    I saw a four foot tall, stylishly designed burlap bag. Supported by a metal frame~not dissimilar to a burlap laundry hamper~I peeked over the top to see an inspiring sight.


    Almost filled to the brim, the entire bag held cleaned bottle caps, ready to be taken and recycled.

    It made me smile, because the Japanese take green living pretty seriously. They have their carbon footprint, don't misunderstand, but it's nice to see that some people really do talk the talk as well as walk the walk.

    Taking the time to clean each bottle cap before being placed into the large sack? Shows even more care.

    Kudos to you Starbucks of Azabu-Juban. You've earned yourself a very loyal customer.

    We can't even turn in the caps in our town.
    Nice work Starbucks - one more reason to love you! :)

    Absolutely! Kerri, it's funny how some of the places the US and Japan have in common are run so differently. I'm not sure if it shows where the priorities of the companies are and where their true interests lie, but I thought the bottle cap sack was a nice effort by the Starbucks team!
