Shipping container Starbucks installed in Ballard
Starbucks in Ballard, Washington, has found an interesting new home, in shipping containers. The new Starbucks is located at 15th Avenue Northwest and Northwest Market Street, and was lowered into place this January. Instead of constructing a building, using traditional brick and mortar, they have used prefabricated containers. The efforts to put recycling and sustainability on the forefront do not go unnoticed, leaving one to wonder whether there will be more initiatives in other locations to follow suite.
