IDL worked with Starbucks to explore materials and processes and ultimately create these new rope baskets for all store formats worldwide. To date, over 85,000 units have been produced and deployed across the globe.
A story of sustainable sourcing
Ethical sourcing is one of Starbucks' primary tenets and objectives, allowing IDL to use stringent labor standards for the production of the baskets and stands. Many of the materials were chosen for their renewable nature and natural aversion to pests, eliminating the need for harmful chemicals and pesticides in the coffee shops.
