Earth Day - Starbucks Mission for a Better Planet

On April 22nd we celebrate International Earth Day. Even if Starbucks pursues its sustainability goals throughout the year, Earth Day is an important occasion to reflect on our own actions and to provide an outlook on the measures for a better future for our planet.

Our earth's resources are limited and must be used wisely. Sustainable action is our responsibility and obligation to our descendants and supports the health and viability of people, nature and the economy. That is why Starbucks' mission and values ​​are geared towards sustainability. From the beginning, Starbucks has strived to be a company that inspires people and their actions and brings them together through coffee to create a better future. Starbucks' vision is to continue to be a resource efficient company and to create a better future for its partners (employees) and the communities it serves. In this context, for example, Starbucks aims to reduce its carbon emissions and the waste that is generated in manufacturing and in stores that end up in landfills by 50% by 2030.

As Starbucks looks to the future, the company is focused on its quest to give more to the planet and help create a sustainable future for coffee growing communities. Starbucks is proud that it has already reached an important milestone and that 99% of its coffee is now sourced from ethically harmless purchases. The Coffee and Farmer Equity Practices, so-called fixed sustainability standards in the coffee industry, which were developed in cooperation with Conservation International, form an important cornerstone for this. When we talk about sustainable coffee, we mean that the supply of high-quality coffee is guaranteed. For this reason, Starbucks is a founding member of the Sustainable Coffee Challenge, the aim of which is to make coffee the world's first sustainable agricultural product. This achievement would provide a good livelihood for 25 million coffee farmers, cover the increasing demand for coffee and safeguard natural and environmental measures.

Starbucks has also been campaigning for a more conscious use of disposable cups for some time: to encourage the use of reusable cups, a discount of 80 cents is given in stores on every drink that is filled into a reusable cup.

Starbucks: a taste explosion with the new Bubble Pop Frappuccino

 Starbucks welcomes a real eye-catcher and a real frappuccino sensation in the coffee houses with the new Bubble Pop Frappuccino. The deliciously creamy pleasure is really appealing with a fine bubble gum aroma and pink popping candies on the top of the cream, which provide a tingling surprise in the mouth. 

The cheerful, colorful Starbucks novelty is the ultimate drink hit for spring, because the Bubble Pop Frappucino has everything a real Frappuccino needs: a cool, colorful look, a sensational taste and a funny twist while enjoying it. The Popping Candy Topping contains compressed air bubbles that expand as soon as the outer shell melts in the mouth and finally burst, thus creating a funny tingling sensation on the tongue! The eye-catching drink gets its bright blue color from spirulina, a natural blue-green algae that has been an important source of food for centuries.

The taste experience and the fun factor are not neglected with the Bubble Pop Frappuccino, because the drink delivers what its look promises! The wonderful cream-based drink with a delicious bubble gum taste, crowned by the cream cap with the funny popping candies, is a real seduction and guarantees fun in our everyday life.

The Bubble Pop Frappuccino will be available for a limited time from April 10th at Starbucks Coffee Houses.

Achieve your dewiest skin yet with  Mario Badescu's new Hyaluronic Dew Cream.
It is formulated with a Sodium Hyaluronate complex for supreme moisture without the heaviness, this oil-free moisturizer leaves skin looking fresh and dewy.
The light texture and cool-to-the-touch hydration replenishes at multiple levels of the skin—and with it, botanical benefits are delivered seamlessly, too. Infused into this oil-free, gel-cream hybrid are restorative Green Tea, clarifying Thyme, and mineral-rich Cucumber to boost the complexion and give skin a dewy, fresh-faced finish.
To boost hydration and glow, you can pair the Hyaluronic Dew Cream with any Mario Badescu Facial Spray. Start with freshly cleansed, toned skin before misting liberally then apply the moisturizer while your skin is still dewy to maximize moisturization.

I had the oppurtunity to test the new Mario Badescu's Hyaluronic Dew Cream and I can really say it delivers good hydration with a dewy finish. It is easily absorbed and layers easily. It feels so cooling and nice on the skin, especially after a shower or toning. I think if you have combination skin like I do this cream is really a great find especially when used with the Badescu's Facial Sprays.
