Starbucks conducts community event Baristas venture out, in protection of the environment

True to its philosophy, Starbucks serves more than just coffee. Since opening last year at the Renaissance Marketplace the Starbucks store has been a popular meeting place, a welcoming business setting, a spot to nurture friendships and enjoy relationships over terrific coffees and delectable snacks.

As a matter of fact, Starbucks is an engaged and engaging member of the island’s business landscape, encouraging and supporting partners – its employees and customers – to get involved in their communities.

While the corporation upholds a global community service program — teaching and following guidelines for waste reduction, recycling, energy & water conservation – it believes that being involved in the community is not only the right thing to do, it’s also good business. The individual Starbuck stores Think Globally and Act Locally, often coming together to make the world a better place.

In that spirit, the crew of the new Starbucks store, about to open at the Renaissance Mall on August 20th, joined hands on Saturday, to clean up the beach area from Renaissance Beach to Havana, in an effort to provide the island with an extra helping hand.
