Sitting outside a Charlotte area Starbucks this morning with a former co-worker when he stopped our conversation to comment on someone who just pulled up and got out of their car to enter the store. He noticed the bumper sticker on their vehicle said ‘more trees/less bush’ but pointed out the owner was decked out in Nike apparel. He commented that if they really believed in the environment then they wouldn’t be wearing Nike which isn’t known as a company who “cares” about the environment when compared to other manufacturers such as Patagonia or Columbia.
My opinion? I thought my grande hazelnut latte and cinnamon twist were exactly what I needed on a comfortable, slightly foggy/overcast October morning.
