Sun campaign persuades Starbucks to turn off its taps

The Sun has claimed a victory in its campaign to persuade Starbucks to stop keeping a tap running all day in its coffee shops in order to clean its spoons. The practice was wasting 23 million litres of water a day, the Sun reports.

The coffee giant’s 698 UK stores are now going to clean their spoons with a burst of hot water from the espresso machine, and shops worldwide are set to follow suit.

On a different, coffee related note – it’s worth picking up The Guardian today for its free Starbucks coffee promotion – this correspondent is currently enjoying a free large soya milk latte, normal price £3.
