Starbucks debuts green cup to encourage unity during divisive election season

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Has this election season felt particularly divisive? Starbucks is hoping to fix that with its new green cup.

The coffee giant debuted the cup Tuesday. It's featured artwork -- designed by artist Shogo Ata -- features a single line that connects several people from all racial backgrounds and walks of life, pitted against a green backdrop.

"The green cup and the design represent the connections Starbucks has as a community with its partners (employees) and customers," said Howard Schultz, Chairman and CEO of Starbucks, according to a news release. "During a divisive time in our country, Starbucks wanted to create a symbol of unity as a reminder of our shared values, and the need to be good to each other."

The cup will be available only in U.S. Starbucks stores, for a limited time, while supplies last.
