Sparkly Drinks with Cascade Ice

A fun zero calorie drink from Cascade Ice!  This is a great summer refreshing drink as a good alternative to soda or juice. It can be used for mixes and creating cocktails and cocktails or your summer get togethers. Cascade Ice is a zero-calorie, sugar-free flavored sparkling water that eliminates all the unnecessary, unhealthy “extras” found in other flavored waters like sugar, sodium, carbs, caffeine and gluten.

Cascade Ice recently launched two new zero-calorie sparkling water flavors – Coconut Pineapple and Coconut Mango! The waters are not only zero-cal but are also free of sugar, sodium and gluten. These sparkling waters are a tasty and unique choice for warm weather enjoyment!

With summer just around the corner, it’s time to start switching your hot coffees and teas for something cool and refreshing. But don’t reach for a soda or margarita just yet! Did you know that one soda contains over 40g of sugar? And a margarita can have up to 600 calories per serving!

Colorful Stationaries from YOOBI @YoobiGives

What a great concept! Yoobi is a new colorful and vibrant school supply brand that makes learning fun while also giving back. Yoobi means “one for you. one for me”—for every Yoobi item you buy, a Yoobi item is donated to a classroom in need right here in the U.S. It’s that simple!

Many kids in the U.S. don’t have access to basic school supplies, unless teachers pay for them out of their own pocket. We don’t think that’s right and we bet you don’t either!

Yoobi believes that it should be a right, not a privilege, for every child in the U.S. to have creative and colorful tools for learning. Together we can make it happen.
