Justin Bieber and Tim Hortons® announce collaboration to bring new menu and merch items to restaurants in Canada and the U.S., starting with limited-edition Timbiebs Timbits®

Tim Hortons

Tim Hortons and Justin Bieber are proud to announce a partnership to collaborate on menu innovations and co-branded merchandise, all inspired by Justin’s fanatical love of the Tims brand. Tim Hortons guests in Canada and the United States will get their first taste of the collaboration on Nov. 29, with the launch of a limited-edition selection of Timbiebs Timbits in Chocolate White Fudge, Sour Cream Chocolate Chip, and Birthday Cake Waffle flavours. Justin shared with the Tims team that Timbits are his favourite item on the menu, which led to a multi-stage, iterative journey with Chef Tallis Voakes, Tim Hortons Director of Culinary Innovation, to experiment with different flavour combinations and collaborate on the recipes that guests can soon try for themselves. "Doing a Tim Hortons collab has always been a dream of mine,” said Justin. “I grew up on Tim Hortons and it’s always been something close to my heart." Tim Hortons is thrilled with how Justin has been all-in on this partnership, said Hope Bagozzi, Chief Marketing Officer for Tim Hortons, including filming a fun TV commercial for the Timbiebs launch. “What’s amazing about working with Justin is he has an authentic, lifelong relationship with Tims and he was so invested in working on Timbiebs and our future plans together,” said Bagozzi. “He knows exactly what our guests already love about the Tims brand and he’s helping us deliver new menu innovations that we know they’re going to love. We’re really looking forward to what’s next.” A lineup of Timbiebs merch will also be available in participating restaurants in Canada and the United States on Nov. 29 – more details will be announced soon. Tim Hortons® is one of North America's largest restaurant chains operating in the quick service segment. Founded as a single location in Canada in 1964, Tim Hortons appeals to a broad range of guest tastes, with a menu that includes premium coffee, hot and cold specialty drinks (including lattes, cappuccinos, espresso, teas and our famous Iced Capps™), fresh baked goods, hot breakfast sandwiches, breakfast snacking items, and other food products.

National Family Caregivers Month

YourUpdateTV

National Family Caregivers Month – celebrated each November – is a time to recognize and honor family caregivers across the country. Caregiver Action Network (CAN), the nation’s leading family caregiver organization, selects each year’s theme for National Family Caregivers Month and spearheads the celebration of National Family Caregivers Month nationally. Recently, John Schall, Chief Executive Officer of the Caregiver Action Network, participated in a nationwide satellite media tour to discuss National Family Caregivers Month and the importance of honoring those caring for a loved one. For National Family Caregivers Month 2021, the #CaregiverAnd Campaign encourages family caregivers to celebrate the identities and passions that enrich their lives. This digital campaign will highlight the other roles, activities, and passions that make up the lives of family caregivers. #CaregiverAnd will also raise awareness of family caregivers as people realize that their daughter’s piano teacher may be caring for her husband with lung cancer, or the mail carrier they see every day may be caring for his dad with Alzheimer’s. Far too often the role of family caregiver overshadows the identity of those caring for their loved ones. As family caregivers juggle their many responsibilities, they may lose sight of who they are beyond the caregiver role. As you focus all your attention on caring for your mom with leukemia, the fact that you’re an architect who loves to do crossword puzzles sometimes gets pushed to the side—and this campaign aims to change that. A person’s sense of self makes their life complete. This is an essential component of self-care that can ultimately prevent caregiver burnout and depression. For more information, visit www.CaregiverAction.org About John Schall: As the Chief Executive Officer of Caregiver Action Network, John Schall is the organization’s content expert, responsible for articulating CAN’s vision, developing the organization’s strategic plan and leading the organization’s advocacy efforts. Recognized nationally as a thought leader on caregiving issues and trends, John effectively links private sector goals with health care public policy. John leverages his 30+ years of expertise in a wide range of policy fields, including healthcare, labor, education, economic development, taxation, and budget policy, to develop programs and strategies to solve the nation’s looming caregiver crisis. About Caregiver Action Network: Caregiver Action Network ( www.CaregiverAction.org ) is the nation’s leading family caregiver organization working to improve the quality of life for more than 90 million Americans who care for loved ones with chronic conditions, disabilities, disease, or the frailties of old age. CAN serves a broad spectrum of family caregivers ranging from the parents of children with significant health needs, to the families and friends of wounded soldiers; from a young couple dealing with a diagnosis of MS, to adult children caring for parents with Alzheimer’s disease. CAN reaches caregivers on multiple platforms. CAN (the National Family Caregivers Association) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization providing education, peer support, and resources to family caregivers across the country free of charge.

Ethos Announces ‘100 Most Sustainable Luxury Items Of 2021’

Ethos

Digital media and e-commerce platform, Ethos, has launched its first comprehensive sustainability ranking: The 100 Most Sustainable Luxury Items of 2021. It kicks-off the platform’s sustainable luxury ranking series. Vetted by Ethos co-founder and creative director, Jackie Lutze, a Harvard University Sustainability MA candidate, the list evaluated individual products instead of brands as a whole—this allowed for a wider range of inclusion. Ranking included ingredients and materials, packaging and shipping practices, labor conditions, and circular sustainability efforts. All brands had to meet at least two stars in order to be considered for inclusion. “This list came to fruition much in the same way Ethos did; we knew there were luxury brands building sustainability into their core,” Lutze says. “We started with a clear-cut list of exemplary attributes and built a rating system around it. At the minimum, all products had to be ethically made with sustainable materials or ingredients.” It’s also the first comprehensive sustainable ranking list of its kind to only feature items made without any animal products or animal testing. “From there, we looked deeper into the brands themselves, rewarding points for those that went above and beyond, such as receiving B Corp Status, using certified organic materials or ingredients, Fair Trade Certification, or LEED-certified production facilities,” says Lutze. Brands earning the highest scores include Stella McCartney, Gucci, Chloé in fashion; Aether Diamonds Tiffany and Co., and Chopard in jewelry; Susanne Kaufman, Aesop, and Sana Jardin in beauty. To see the full list and rankings, click here. “It may sound strange to call the luxury market underserved, but when it comes to sustainability, that’s often the case,” says Jill Ettinger, Ethos co-founder and editorial director. “The luxury market is valued at more than $5 trillion; that is immense purchasing power and influence. These brands need to shine a greater spotlight on their sustainability efforts. And according to our research, the luxury consumer wants to make the best choices for the planet. To them, sustainability is luxury.” To celebrate the launch, Ethos is donating 100 trees to its nonprofit partner, The Fruit Tree Planting Foundation. The trees will be planted in Mococa, Brazil, in 2022. “When Ethos approached us about collaborating on one of our groundbreaking fruit tree plantings, we were thrilled to suggest an upcoming initiative to plant 100 life-sustaining trees for low-income families in Brazil later this year,” said Cem Akin, FTPF’s TreeEO. “Through this generous support, generations of families will have cleaner air to breathe and a healthy source of nutrition right in their backyards. We are so grateful to partner with Ethos in supporting sustainable, earth-friendly projects,” Akin said. About Ethos: Launched in 2021 by Jackie Lutze and Jill Ettinger, Ethos is the premier digital platform for personal and planetary sustainability filtered through a luxury lens. Through thought-provoking conversations and recommendations across fashion, beauty, travel, food, nutrition, and more, along with its e-commerce platform and its first sustainability rankings, The Ethos 100, Ethos is helping to bridge the gaps in the sustainable luxury market. the-ethos.co.
