Memorial Day Fun!

Pekoe, Celebrate, Iced Tea,

Celebrate Memorial Day with Tea

Memorial Day is a day to remember all those who have sacrificed their lives to serve our country. It is also a day to spend with family and friends in the anticipation of summer. Memorial Day is usually filled with cold drinks, burgers on the grill, and outdoor activities, all things that are making us excited for the upcoming holiday!

Add Iced Tea to Your Day

Nothing sounds more relaxing and refreshing then an iced tea on a warm summer day. Iced tea is not only delicious but has a long list of health benefits along with it. It is rich in vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants that keep a check on calories consumed during the day but also is overall a great way to boost your energy and nourish your body. Even kids enjoy the sweet flavors and refreshment of iced tea with the extra bonus of low sugar. Hot or cold, tea is a great option for any time of day to enjoy, even in your food! We want you to focus on your time spent with family and friends and leave your menu planning to us!

Let’s Celebrate the Earth!

Reusable, Mugs, Pekoe,

Earth Day is such an exciting day to remind us how great this state of Colorado is with its fresh mountain air and a community that is motivated to stay healthy and active outside. With today being the official day for earth awareness, most of you probably took an extra minute of your day to really take in how we are helping the environment, but couldn’t we make Earth Day every day!

Boulder,CO

As a Boulder, Colorado local company, Pekoe Sip House is involved in keeping the earth around us clean and healthy every day. They focus on the use of recyclable products and promoting reusability with their collection of travel mugs and tumblers. Keeping the earth clean is a main priority which makes each sip that much more enjoyable.

Each one of us can help make a big difference with just that one extra thought each day, that’s only 365 minutes a year for the environment which is a lot less minutes thinking about work, yourself, and eating. In Boulder and the whole state of Colorado, the locals are great examples of how each one of us makes a difference in keeping the earth clean and the mountains as prestigious as they have always been. The bike paths that run more than 300 miles around the city allows commuters to not only enjoy the 300 days of sunshine Colorado offers, but keeping the air free from less car pollution. With those paths, people are walking, running, or even roller-skating to work, stores, and home. Not only does this allow our beautiful state of Colorado to stay clean but it keeps the community healthy and motivated.

Here are a few easy ways to help the Earth every single day.

REUSE and then RECYCLE: You know those days you are rushing to the grocery store to make dinner before the craziness of the kids coming home then you get to the store and you forgot your reusable bags. We have all been there, and now you are forced to use the paper grocery store bags but that is OK! Now you can use those bags next time at the store and the time after that until its completely used then you RECYCLE. A small gesture like this can make a huge difference in the long run.

• BYOM – Bring Your Own Mug: This small act is so easy and it cuts out having to worry about recycling! Bringing your own mug to Pekoe Sip House will of course give you the perk of a discount every time, but also the convenience of on-the-go capability with the comfort of your own mug and no need for finding a recycling bin once you finish your beverage. Sounds like a no-brainer!
• Take a Stroll or Ride – Boulder makes it extremely easy for us to commute on foot or bike to work, shop,and grab a happy-hour drink with friends. With the access to the bike paths no matter your location in town, you can contribute to the clean breathing air by one day a week walking or biking instead of driving.

Just once a week can make a huge difference!

Get Outside and Play!

Earth Day is a great way to remember why we want to keep the land we live in clean and flourishing. Take a look out your window or take a walk on your lunch break, appreciate what Colorado has to offer and and what each one of us can offer to this amazing state we call home.
