I just posted last week about how our beloved Seattle icon Starbucks is greening their footprint building a recycled shipping container store. But today I stumbled upon their latest creation “Evolution Fresh” and let me tell you this is not just another “concept” coming from the coffee giant…this is an all out EVOLUTION in our fast-food diets!
This evolution isn’t just at this store, oh no! It is replacing all the coffee stores Naked juice brand with Evolution Fresh choices, and they are YUMMY! I picked up my first Spicy Lemonade and what a pleasant combo of lemon, ginger and a hint of cayenne…. Lovely!
And get this… as I sat here writing this post outside the store on The Lodge’s comfy couches they came up & offered me a sample of their “Southwest Scramble”. It was light, tasty and filled with hints of mouth-watering goodness! I’m ordering lunch before I leave today & know I won’t be disappointed!
So check out the juices in your local Starbucks store today and if ever in Seattle head east 20 minutes to Bellevue & try their new version of fast food… our world’s health (and taste buds) are going to forever be evolved!
Starbucks… their logo is green (perfect for upcoming St. Patrick’s day!) -AND- more importantly the company is GREEN, as in Eco focused!
As a true born-and-raised Washingtonian, I <3 my local coffee company. They have always brought out the best in so many ways but their latest store opening in south Seattle made out of recycled shipping containers is quite simply BRILLIANT! And a good GREEN focus here on the eve of St. Patrick’s day and everyday for those of us that choose the color Eco-Green all the time!
Just check out their brilliant architecture…
and how could you beat that this store is fully transferable to another spot? Yep, they just have to break it down, ship it up and reposition it on another spot for true multi-use-functionality!
Thanks Starbucks! For taking our GREEN agenda here in the PNW and expanding it with your vision yet again! There are other coffee houses, coffee companies and coffee choices… but as long as you keep leading this environmentally conscious direction, I am eternally your follower!
I have cut back on my latte consumption in the last two years, partially because of it’s cost and secondly because I’m still trying to loose that extra baby-weight. But today I did make it in before work and to my surprise I was one of the first to witness the launch of an initiative by Starbucks (who donated $5 Million to and is teaming up with) and Opportunity Finance Network to “Create Jobs for USA“. (www.createjobsforUSA.org)
In these economic times it is essential for all of us to pitch in to not only turn our economy around but help out the businesses and neigbors who are out there on the front lines doing their part.
So Starbucks is selling these awesome little bracelets for your $5 donation which 100% goes to a whole slew of investiment strategies from funding nonprofits to what else… job creation!
I have a funny feeling these bracelets are going to sell out… so I would get in today and get yours and help all of us pull our country (and in a sense the rest of the world) out of this negative spin we’ve been in for years now and get going again in the right direction!
The saying on the bracelet says “Indivisible” and that’s what I’m standing behind with my purchase and outward fashion statement!
