Today is Earth Day, a day in which we reflect upon the fragility of our planet and our place upon it. Earth Day was created in 1970, coinciding with the passage of Clean Air, Clean Water Act and the Endangered Species Act. Every year, on April 22, people all over the world are called to action to do something to protect our planet. What are you doing today to help keep our air and water clean?
At our gym, we do our best to minimize our impact. Our rubber floor is made from recycled tires. We could have gone with a cheaper flooring option, but we are committed to recycling where possible. Have you noticed our bottle, can, plastic, and paper recycling boxes in the office?
We clean the gym with Norwex cloths and DoTerra essential oil cleaners. These companies are committed to providing non-toxic environmentally friendly products. The Norwex cloths we purchase through member Heidi Maxwell. These microfiber towels clean without the requirement for extra cleaners and detergents. They are embedded with silver, a natural antimicrobial element. When we need to use a special cleaner, we use the DoTerra On Guard cleaning solution. Once a week we use DoTerra On Guard on all the surfaces and on the pull-up bars, barbells, kettle bells, and anything else we grab and put our hands on. We want a clean gym, but not at the expense of clean air and water. Speaking of clean air, have you noticed the diffuser in the bathroom? We like to diffuse essential oils rather than use chemical air fresheners. Who wants to breath or ingest potential carcinogens?
We purchase recycled paper towels for the bathroom (yes, we know the current stock doesn't fit quite right), and when we can find it, recycled TP.
We know if takes resources to run a business, but we are committed to finishing ways to reduce our impact.
In honor of Earth Day and Arbor Day on Friday, we are extending our Seva WOD to all classes on Friday. Our Seva WODs are free to you and/or a guest with the donation of 2 seed packets. We are collecting seed packets to donate to local school gardens.
