Weekly Update # 20

I know I've been not so good with keeping up with my weekly updates so I'm sorry about that. This week though, we are right on track.

Starbucks Renovate to Educate

Starbucks partners (employees) are trained not only to pour an extra shot of good in each cup but also in everything they do. Now, Starbucks aims to inspire its partners to serve beyond stores and straight to communities where they are a part of. This is in line with the company’s goal to have 100% of its stores globally to participate in a community service starting 2020.

Starbucks is taking steps towards this commitment through celebrating the Global Month of Good annually every April. During this month, Starbucks partners from stores all over the world will lead projects that will help strengthen the communities they serve.

To commemorate the Global Month of Good in the Philippines, Starbucks began inspiring volunteerism among its partners by involving them in several community service projects since April. This time, the partners volunteered for the Renovate to Educate (RED) Project with long-time partner, Teach for the Philippines (TFP).

As a non-profit organization with a mission of providing quality education to Filipino children, TFP works together with Renovate to Educate to rehabilitate classrooms and facilities in public schools across the country.


As we celebrate World Ocean Month this June and plan the next beach trip for a quick weekend getaway, let us help preserve the beauty of the ocean in our own little way with MAGWAI Reef-Safe Sunscreen.

MAGWAI Reef-Safe Sunscreen stemmed from two beach-lovers’ passion and admiration for the ocean and coral reefs. It may seem like corals are merely rocks that serve as homes to sea creatures, but they are actually made of thousands of tiny animals and are vulnerable and need protection too. Inherent climate change issues, destructive fishing practices, recreational misuse, trash and plastic pollution are the common elements we know that harm the ocean, but not a lot are aware that chemicals in our sunscreen that we use before hitting the beach are actually toxic to coral reefs, even with just a minimal amount.

MAGWAI Reef-Safe Sunscreen is designed with natural ocean-loving ingredients that also keep us safe from sun damage. It contains SPF 50+ broad spectrum, UVA and UVB protection, it’s water and sweat resistant, paraben-free and uses non-nano ingredients and boosts of all-natural ingredients such as Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide which are harmless to reefs and corals.
