What: Star­bucks Cof­fee has al­ways been a big sup­porter of "go­ing green" and tak­ing part in en­vi­ron­men­tally sus­tain­able busi­ness prac­tices. Their new ven­ture into so­lar en­ergy proves just that. The new 84-panel so­lar­pow­ered sys­tem can now be seen on the rooftop of the store in St. Char­bel Vil­lage. On April 23, the Transna­tional Uyeno So­lar Cor­po­ra­tion and Rus­tan Cof­fee Cor­po­ra­tion held a cer­e­mony con­grat­u­lat­ing the part­ner­ship of the two and the new be­gin­nings for Star­bucks Cof­fee. The new setup not only cuts elec­tric­ity costs by 20 per­cent; it also sets an ex­am­ple for other busi­nesses, as well as their loyal cus­tomers to be en­vi­ron­men­tally cau­tious and use en­vi­ron­men­tal-friendly al­ter­na­tives. Where: Star­bucks Cof­fee, St. Char­bel Vil­lage in Que­zon City
