Getting green while following technology? Sure! Many Cafés are now offering digital newsstand, which are both green and modern, providing people with paper-free updated news at no cost. Here you can find two examples. The big corporation one, Starbucks, and a small Café in Croatia.
The Starbucks Digital Network has debuted their exclusive content network to further enhance the customer’s in-store experience. Customers who use the free Wi-Fi at more than 6,800 U.S. Starbucks locations will be greeted with the Starbucks Digital Network. As a channel where consumers will be plugged into a variety of reading sections like news, entertainment and business, this Starbucks Digital Network will keep readers engaged and going back to the famous coffee house for more access
On the other side of the Ocean, the Box Coffee Shop in Split, Croatia is replacing its offer of free newspapers with iPads. While each tablet is free to use, there is a security tag to alert baristas of any theft.
The idea is the same, the scale is a little bit different, but what is important is that the message must be clear: less paper, more green. (Credits: Trendhunter)
