Starbucks Big Picture

Starbucks is encouraging customers to move towards reusable mugs with “Big Picture”, described as a green project and an eco movement. To illustrate the importance of the customer challenge, Starbucks invited thousands of people to exchange their cups for reusable tumblers while creating a symbolic Sequoia mural for Starbucks on March 17 and 18 in New York City. The mural symbolized the collective impact individuals can make, and during this event, 5,000 individuals pledged to continue using tumblers.
