Starbucks Shared Planet is Starbucks commitment to doing business in ways that are good to each other and the planet. With the first time ever of having 5 different covers (Poplar, Bamboo, Cherry, Spruce, and Oak). Yes, each design represents a specific wood because of the hard bound exterior of the planner is made from engineered or artificial wood --- Poplar being the lightest and Oak the darkest.
