For Here – Committed to our Hometown
Partners, customers & UW came together to support the environment
As part of the Global Month of Service, UW and Starbucks partnered on Earth Day at the UW Center for Urban Horticulture.
We’re all for helping the things that make Seattle special. Which is why we’re all about serving you the best coffee alongside supporting local causes and youth engagement, protecting and preserving our environment, and doing all we can to help create a healthy future for Seattle.
Be it SoDo or Greenlake, Beacon Hill or Ballard – Starbucks is committed to helping neighborhoods thrive wherever we do business. It’s a vow rooted deep in our heritage. And with 100 stores and over 6,000 partners (employees) in the city of Seattle, it’s a testament that we can be a catalyst for positive local change.
The Starbucks Foundation supports our personal engagement in the Seattle community through Partner Match and Community Service Grants - providing matching grants to nonprofits where our partners have made personal monetary and time contributions.
To reduce the impact our stores have on the planet, we're designing and building them with locally sourced products, reusing or recycling materials where we can and finding ways to lower the amount of water and energy we consume. Learn more about our commitment to building greener stores and reducing our environmental impact around the globe.
Our first LEED® certified store at 1st & Pike has been designed and built with many environmentally smart features. Take a virtual tour, or better yet – come see us in person.
