Congratulations, you’ve just put another work week in the history books. Whether you’re winding down or winding up, we’ve put together an epic list of everything that’s on offer over the break. So as you allow the positive energy to enter your soul, take a look at our latest edition of Feel-Good Friday.
St. ALi Hand Out Good Vibrations for Youth Mental Health
Embracing what Feel-Good Friday is all about, St ALi is literally handing out good vibrations next week. The coffee connoisseurs are asking fans to support youth mental health on Tuesday August 23 at the newly revamped ST ALi Canteen, 30 Collins Street Melbourne. St. ALi will be hosting a day of good vibes from 7am-3pm donating all proceeds from coffee sales for the entire day to Youth Foundation, headspace. It’s a chance to try the newest blend, Good Vibrations, a delicious coffee brew with a purpose.
The Australian Bureau of Statistics’ latest National Health Survey found that almost 19% of Australians aged 15 to 24-years-old experience depression. These overwhelming statistics resonate deeply with ST. ALi and headspace. As such, $1 from each Good Vibrations bag sold will be donated to headspace, to support the great work they do. Good Vibrations is found exclusively at Coles Supermarkets in Victoria, New South Wales and ACT.

Borneo Orangutan Survival Australia Pledges to End Illegal Wildlife Trade and Unsustainable Palm Oil Practices
Today, Borneo Orangutan Survival (BOS) Australia, who raise money to support the largest great ape conservation program in the world, continues its bid to garner the nation’s support in what they say is a critical and urgent time to fight the extinction of great apes, with the launch of two global initiatives on International Orangutan Day – the Palm Oil Pledge, and the Wildlife Trade Pledge.
With only 55,000 wild Bornean orangutans estimated to be left in the wild, they face many threats, with deforestation, habitat loss, illegal hunting, and illegal wildlife trade being the main threats to their
well-being, survival, and population. The two new Pledges aim to encourage the public to become part of the solution by signing the Pledges online and learning practical steps to end these damning industries.
AFL Legend Brendan Fevola Launches Mad Mex’s New Plant-Based Range
Mad Mex, one of Australia’s leading fast, casual Mexican restaurants, is pitting beef against plant power by challenging Australians to see if they can taste the difference between its meat and plant-based mince. Mad Mex is the first and only Mexican restaurant brand to create vegan mince as part of its menu. The Mexicali Mince contains no meat but still has an authentic Mexican meat taste. The mince incorporates a mix of Mad Mex’s signature sauces and spices that deliver an unbeatable tasty and saucy filling, that might even be better than the real thing.
Mad Mex has partnered with a renowned carnivore and former AFL player Brendon Fevola “Fev” to trial these new tasty ‘flexitarian’ options and launch its new Powered by Plants menu items. Fev said: “I love meat. I must admit I was sceptical of the taste and flavour of plant-based food. I’ve tried them before and it hasn’t tasted nice. This tastes exactly like meat, I can’t tell the difference. That’s the biggest surprise to me. I’m focused on my diet right now and if there’s a way I can make healthier choices and still get the same flavour and taste, then I’m all in”.
To celebrate the new range, Mad Mex is offering customers a free Mexicali Mince Taco when they purchase any main meal from the 15th -21st August, nationwide. All people need to do is say “Mission Mexicali” at outlets to receive the complimentary taco and taste the Powered by Plants range. For more information on the offer, head to the Mad Mex website.
