Go Green with Zest!

Go Green with Zest!

Each month, our partner, Virgin Pulse, rewards members for committing to healthy behavior.  This month's Healthy Habit Challenge coincides with Earth Day.  It is a reminder to protect the Earth by avoiding disposable plastics, such as shopping bags and water bottles.

Plastic is a non-biodegradable material, which most of us do not recycle.  50 percent of the plastic we use is thrown away.  Make a difference by avoiding disposable plastics all together during the week of April 17-23.  Track the Healthy Habit "Go Green" from the Contribute to my Community thrive area throughout the week of April 17-23.  You will earn an extra 200 points for tracking 5 of 7 days.

Don't forget to celebrate Earth Day on April 22nd.  There are many simple ways to contribute, even at work:

  1. Share the road. Take public transportation or carpool with a friend.
  2. Think reusable.  Bring your own thermos to the coffee shop on the way in to the office, and pack your lunch in glass containers.
  3. Use less paper.  Use email to share documents, and if you must print, use both sides.
  4. Find your green thumb.  Bring a small plant to liven up your desk.
  5. Take the stairs.  Get a bit of exercise while saving some of the electricity required to power the elevator.
  6. Power down.  Shut down your computer when you're away from your desk, and don't forget to unplug your charger.
