How 'Green' is Your Coffee?

How 'Green' is Your Coffee?

With more and more eco-friendly coffee on grocery store shelves in the U.S. and with major outlets like Starbucks and McDonald's getting into the act in recent years, you might think the coffee industry is becoming greener. But think again. 

Shalene Jha, assistant professor in the College of Natural Sciences, and her colleagues evaluated global coffee production and found something surprising: the proportion of land used to cultivate shade grown coffee, relative to the total land area of coffee cultivation, has fallen by nearly 20 percent globally since 1996.

Jha's research is featured in an article by E&E News: http://www.eenews.net/stories/1060006689
