NEWS: Starbucks Challenge 4.0 Winners

City Hippy and green LA girl have picked 2 winners for Starbucks Challenge 4.0!

Winner #1: Snooble took 3 challenges within just 8 days, 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 :)

Award: A 2 lb bag of fair trade coffee from Just Coffee.

Winner #2: Michael of Vibes Watch. Michael and Erin tried out the Starbucks Challenge in LA -- where the baristas initially messed up the French press -- but then made up for it by loading the challengers up with 1 iced tea, 2 cups of coffee, 2 desserts and 2 drink coupons -- all for just $1.70. Good things happen to those who take the Starbucks Challenge! :P

Award: An enviro-friendly, reusable, and chic workplace dish set (right, a $39 value!)

Details about the People's Choice Award to come soon!

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 :)
