Starbucks Built With Reclaimed Shipping Containers

In an effort to be more eco-concious, Starbucks has built a new outpost in Tukwila, Wash., that uses four reclaimed shipping containers.

As shown in the photos below, the store uses sections as a drive-thru, a sign post, and the store itself.

"Our designers were inspired to create this store both as a result of the shipyard that can be seen out the back windows of our headquarters in South Seattle, as well as a desire to recycle the same kind of shipping containers that transport our coffees and teas around the world,” Starbucks spokesman Alan Hilowitz said.
