Yo Mon Frozen Yogurt is thrilled, excited, over the moon (anything but mellow) about the newest offering in our stores: Marley’s Mellow Mood Drinks! Marley’s are designed to de-stress, calm down and basically put you at peace with the world. The drinks have been created in partnership with the family of reggae legend, Bob Marley, and are made with all sorts of lovely, calming botanicals like lemon balm, hops, valerian root, chamomile and passion flower. The brand has flavors like Black Tea (Peach-Raspberry-Passion Fruit), Green Tea with Honey, Tea Lemonade, Berry Sparkling Relaxation Tea, and Citrus Sparkling Relaxation Tea. You know that Yo Mon likes to be the place you come to take a load off, chat with friends and family, smile and otherwise let the world slip away for a while; well, we think Marley Mellow Mood Drinks is another step in that direction.
And you know what else we love about this company? They have a mission. If you know anything about Bob Marley, then you know that he wanted to leave the world a better place than it was when he entered it. To that end, Marley’s Drinks has a foundation, 1Love, with three platforms: Youth, Planet, and Peace. In their own words:
Youth: We believe the future of our collective nations rests in the care, feeding and education of our children.
Planet: As a global community we need to live green and engage in sustainability in order to protect our planets precious resources for future generations.
Peace: the well being of humanity lies in the hands of our global community and a commitment to the greater good.
Last year, they were able to give one million dollars to charitable organizations, and they are in the midst of creating a new program to bring educational resources to Jamaica as well as to raise money for Victoria Jubilee Hospital in Kingston, which offers services to 70,000 women and delivers 9,000 babies every year.
Their goal is this: “Raise much needed funding and donations to significantly help select charities that align with our core values. Create a movement that inspires people in mass numbers to channel their energy and efforts in a uniquely Marley way. We want to inspire and encourage people to make a real difference in the world through both their influence and actions.” See why we like them so much?
We think Marley’s Mellow Mood Drinks are a great addition to Yo Mon—delicious, very chill and adding to the greater good. Kind of makes you want to sing a little One Love, huh?
Come in and give Marley’s a try soon and let us know what you think; and if you’re inspired to sing a little Bob to us, too—so much the better, mon!Share
