I’m a real Starbucks lover. And happy to hear that they’re now joining my world.

See, last thursday they announced that the company aims to earn LEED certification on all new company-owned stores beginning in 2010. LEED means: Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design.

The company has set long-term goals including replacing all stores’ incandescent bulbs with LED bulbs and ensuring 100 percents of its cup supply is reusable or recyclable by 2015.
