NEWS: Starbucks Challenge 3.5 awards
After reading the 40 Starbucks Challenges taken this week, City Hippy and green LA girl have picked 2 winners!
Winner #1: Justin
took 5 challenges, all over the Seattle area, since Challenge 3.0 -- despite the fact that he doesn't like the taste of Cafe Estima!
Award: An enviro-friendly, reusable, and chic workplace
dish set (right, a $39 value!)
Some honorable mentions: Matty from Rockville put the challenge before his date -- what a guy! And fromscatteredtribe
of Arizona had a textbook failure with almost every possible error made and still managed to not murder anyone.
But the winner #2 is... Ardent Eden's It's Not Just for Coffee post, which was informative and generated some great comments too.
Award: Fair trade yummies from Clipper-Teas!
Details about Starbucks' response to this round of the challenge to come soon, pending a call back from Cindy of Starbucks.
We will report back in mid-March, when - according to the LA Starbucks managers we met with last month - all LA-area stores - and hopefully stores all over North America, should, at the very least, have French presses and serve fair trade coffee to those who ask firmly.
Stay tuned -- And if you find yourself at a Starbucks between now and then, always ask for fair trade coffee :)
Have a fair trade day :)
