08 Nov The Company Contrast – Starbucks
Each week 2ndVote takes a look at a popular company that scores poorly on the 2ndVote scoring system and then provides some better alternatives for you to easily align your shopping dollars with your values. This series is called The Company Contrast, and the company we will be focusing on this week is Starbucks (1- liberal).
Starbucks is one of the top coffee companies since the company began in 1971. Starbucks is the parent of the following brands: Seattle’s Best Coffee, Tazo, Ethos Water, and more. Even though Starbucks is a popular place to grab a cup of coffee and do some work, eating there undermines your values based on their continuous support of the leftist agenda.
Starbucks scores a 1 on 2ndVote’s scoring system because of its partnership with the National Urban League which supports same-sex marriage and sanctuary cities. Starbucks also contributes to different organizations that are pro-choice. To see all of the reasons Starbucks scores so poorly, you can click on their company page here.
Fortunately, when you want coffee or a snack, but don’t want to sacrifice your conservative views, there are better alternatives out there. Try supporting a small local coffee shop, Green Mountain Coffee Company or Lasaters Coffee & Tea. Their neutral stance on issues and commitment to its customers is why 2ndVote has deemed them better alternatives to Starbucks.
