NEWS: Starbucks Challenge 4.0 People's Choice Awards - VOTE NOW!

City Hippy and green LA girl are now proud to announce the Starbucks Challenge Peoples Choice Award nominees awaiting your votes.

And the nominees for the Starbucks Challenge Peoples Choice Award for services to the Challenge are:

Declan of Dublin
Declan is a long time supporter of the challenge and in phase 4 did three challenges with mixed results but plenty of interesting observations about Starbucks staff thinking they either stopped doing fairtrade or that all their coffee is fairtrade. So no training problems there then eh? ;)

Took 3 challenges within just 8 days and all in the Philly area :) On top of that, she took the time to educate others about fair trade and Starbucks' practices -- the good and the bad -- on Surfing on a Rocket. AND -- the baristas reading this will love this one -- she tipped 150% after her first successful challenge :)

Two Heroes
Two heroes has taken 13 challenges (surely a record?) and has blogged them all on one page. Now that is what I call dedication...and we love dedication ;)

The prize:
A Fan Belt, courtesy of BTC Elements. The belt's made of recycled tire inner tubes in Boulder, Colorado.


VOTE NOW! Voting ends on Sunday, June 18; winners will be announced Monday, June 19, 2006.

Have a fair trade day :)
