Hillz Design - If Earth is Our Mother Candles

Within the candles’ flickering lights, you will discover the precious gifts contained in the coffee grounds.

Starbucks has invested in social corporate responsibility activities for a long period of time, from community clean-up projects, to regular involvement in both small-and large-scale group activities. Since 2010, Starbucks partners had already reached an accumulated 185,000 hours of volunteer work. With Starbucks Taiwan’s 20th anniversary in 2018, from the perspective of the Starbucks brand, the thought is of how more can be done for society and how circular economy and renewable energy issues can be incorporated into Earth Day activities.

Candlelight, Calligraphy, and the Mother Earth: Beginning to repair relationships from ‘the heart’

The inspiration for “If Earth is Our Mother” came from the traditional Hawaiian therapy of ‘Ho’oponopono’. Comprised of four phrases of cleansing and healing (‘I love you’, ‘I am sorry’, ‘please forgive me’, and ‘thank you’), it is intended to build a connection between modern humans and the Earth. While using candlelight and calligraphy pen to write out the ‘four phrases’ of Ho’oponopono in a ceremony where participants gather for a congenial party, Mother Earth begins to repair relationships from the ‘heart’.
