What's Brewing: April 2019
Good day, eco-warriors!
Here's the good news: It's April, which means it's almost May, which means it's almost summer! The bad news is it's still cold. But! Because we like to take a positive spin on things over here at GoJava, we're looking ahead to ways that you can green up your routine for spring both at home and at the office. We're also giving you a treat to help you stay energized through the busier days that come with the spring and summer months. So read on!
10% Off Nomz
That afternoon slump is FOR REAL. Some days (most days?) a coffee or tea just doesn't cut it and you need a little extra something to get you through the day. Rather than reaching for processed or sugar-laden treats that spike blood sugar and then have us crashing 20 minutes later, at our office we like to hit up the Nomz energy balls for a dose of healthy, organic, and energizing ingredients that include super foods like almonds, cocoa, dates, coconut oil and sea salt. They are also delicious so if you have a sweet tooth, these will do the trick. Whether at home or at the office, we want you to feel good and guilt-free about what you put in your bod! So from now until June 30th, please enjoy 10% off all Nomz products at GoJava.ca with code: NOMZ at checkout.
Green At Home
Did you know that one of the most harmful areas of toxin exposure we are open to on a daily basis comes from the cleaning products we use? Not to mention the negative impact it has on our oceans and lakes when we use cleaners, dishwasher pods and laundry detergents laced with harsh chemicals like ammonia, chlorine, sodium hydroxide and others that are impossible to pronounce. One easy, effective and economical way to green up your spring cleaning this year is to swap out chemical-based cleaners for natural ones. And trust us, they work!
For bathrooms and sinks, try swapping out your scouring powders and toilet bowl cleaners for basic baking soda and vinegar. In fact, vinegar can be used for everything from windows and mirrors, to counter surfaces and floors. It's Mother Nature's way of providing us with a natural disinfectant and cleaning agent. Hate the smell? Add a few drops of lemon or orange essential oil to a mixture of 50% water & 50% vinegar and voila! You have a cheap, effective, and non-smelly home cleaner that won't cause skin irritation or breathing difficulties, let alone more serious side effects like endocrine disruption and asthma.
If mixing your own products isn't your thing, we also provide natural cleaners with a positive rating from the EWG (Environmental Working Group) such as Nature Clean Glass & Window Cleaner, Seventh Generation All Purpose Cleaner, Nature Clean Dishwasher Packs, Seventh Generation Dish Liquid and much more!
Green At The Office
One thing offices go through at an alarming rate is bathroom tissue. And as such, one of the most impactful things you can choose to do if you are ordering the products for your office is to switch from regular bathroom tissue to an environmentally friendly option. Not only do they work basically the same way (there's not a huge margin for error here!) but they come without dyes, fragrance or chlorine -- which might not be a big deal to you -- but when you think of all of that accumulating in water systems and landfill, the chemicals ADD UP. There are a variety of brands out there with comparative costs including Seventh Generation 2-Ply Bathroom Tissue which, as luck would have it, we provide at GoJava.ca :)
We hope you are enjoying a healthy, green start to the spring! If you are interested in learning more about the environmentally friendly products and services we offer, please don't hesitate to reach out to us at email@example.com. And as always, we thank you for your continued support!
Keep it green!
