We recognize the importance of reducing, reusing, and recycling. That’s why our bottles are made of 100% post-consumer recycled plastic and our cardboard packaging is Sustainable Forestry Initiative Certified. Here are some tips on how to reduce, reuse, and recycle in your own home: Ditch your plastic tupperware for glass or ceramic tupperware.

Change your lightbulbs to a compact fluorescent light (CFL) or eco-friendly bulb. These bulbs last way longer and are more energy efficient, using about a quarter less energy than regular bulbs. You’ll save more money with these...

In honor of Earth Day, this week we will have a series of posts about the holiday and why it's so important. Today, we start with how Earth Day came to be.  Earth Day is a national day to show support for environmental protection. Earth Day was founded by former U.S. Wisconsin Senator Gaylord Nelson. After witnessing the devastating damages from a 1969 oil spill in Santa Barbara, California, Nelson felt that if he could create a National day to focus on environmental efforts, Americans would become more conscious of environmental issues. In turn, he felt citizens would put more...
