Starbucks are one of the biggest chains in the world and it they seem to be popping up all over Dublin at the moment. They make a big deal about their coffee being fair trade and looking after the environment but it would seem that doesn't apply to their own shops. A new Starbucks is opening on Leeson Street today and to help achieve that sleek minimalist look that their brand is known for they've been busy cutting down trees today.
