Two Calgary students have met with the CEO of Starbucks after an online petition they spearheaded to push the coffee giant to deal with cup waste attracted more than 300,000 signatures.
The Grade 6 students from Terrace Road School — Eve Helman, 11, and Mya Chau, 12 — want Starbucks to commit to a fully recyclable cup to reduce what ends up in the landfill.
