This Saturday, November 13th, is World Kindness Day. We love that there is a day focused on spreading kindness in the world. The purpose of this day is to remind everyone that simple acts of kindness can have the power to bring about a kinder world. The day was founded with the core intention of highlighting good deeds and how goodness binds us all together.
Here at Twrl Milk Tea, we are all about good health and good ingredients. Our founders Pauline and Olivia share a love for good food and the community we all live in. They are super passionate about producing great-tasting, plant-based milk tea, using the best and cleanest ingredients possible, without having to compromise on flavor. Truly, every part of Twrl is dedicated to kindness—to your taste buds, to your body, to our suppliers, to our planet.
From start to finish, Twrl Milk Tea is about all goodness and joy. Our milk teas start with, well, tea! Each one of our tea leaves are grown from sustainable, multi-generational family-owned tea farms. We have a special relationship with our growers which is why our tea tastes so so good—it's grown with love! Not to mention, they are also packed with nutrients. Our teas contain antioxidants and adaptogens that promote relaxation and health. Learn more in our blog post about the benefits of our tea!
Furthermore, our milk teas are made with pea milk, the most sustainable plant based milk there is on the market. This means it is kind to our environment and body. Learn more in our blog post about the benefits of pea milk. Don’t forget, our cans are 100% recyclable, which is another way for us to show love to mother nature.
As working professionals and also moms, Pauline and Olivia greatly value the community they live in and believe strongly in giving back. They both actively seek to promote and work with our community, especially minority groups. Our upcoming product launch of Twrl Me Up Gift Box features all female artists that Twrl hand picked ourselves. Each postcard is specially designed by a curated selection of small-scale female artists in efforts to support and empower the women in and outside the art community. We collaborated with the Dance community to showcase their Twrl Signature Let’s Dance as a celebration of our Twr Me Up launch. Dance is artistic expression and a form of healing that provides inspiration and joy to others. The Twrl team hopes the dances will bring happiness and joy to everyone that watches the dances.
A key part of Twrl Milk Tea is our commitment to giving back to the community and this includes elevating the minority and/or women partners that work with us. A portion of the proceeds of the Twrl Me Up Gift Box will be donated to AAPI mental health and well being.
In efforts to spread our core values and celebrate World Kindness Day, we have compiled a few ways to spark positivity in the lives of those around you.
- Finally catch up with that person you’ve been meaning to talk to! Whether that be giving your parents a call or sending a sweet text to someone you haven’t seen in a while, take some time to appreciate the connections you’ve made in your life and give them some nourishment.
- Give someone a random gift—friends and family do not need a special reason to be worth celebrating! Whether the gift is as small as a back massage or as grandiose as our Twrl Me Up gift box (which, by the way, is a GREAT holiday gift that spreads happiness and cheer), these random acts of kindness have a much bigger impact than you’d expect. A portion of Twrl Me Up is donated to AAPI nonprofits focused on providing mental health and well being services so your kindness will reach even more people in need.
- Give 5 strangers a compliment, because who doesn’t love one. Especially in the age of the pandemic, small interactions with strangers have become increasingly rare, but who says it has to stay that way? A quick compliment can brighten anyone's day.
- Most importantly, be kind to yourself! Portion some time of your day to celebrate and treat yourself, whether that be through a relaxing bath, delicious meal, or a long breath of fresh air. Remember, kindness comes from within, and by being kind to yourself, you’ll find yourself naturally being kinder to everyone around you.
To promote mental health and well being, Twrl Milk Tea will be hosting a number of free events on Instagram Live.
