April 2019 Update

Posted by Allison McDonald on

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 Kind Bars

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 heavily 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 Kind Bars for a dose of healthy, non-GMO and energizing ingredients that include super foods such almonds, coconut, dark chocolate and sea salt. They also happen to be 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 Kind Bars at GoJava with code: KIND 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.
 


Green At The Office

One of the most significant sources of waste that is generated through offices comes from not having the option to compost food waste items. Luckily, GoJava has a Zero Waste Office program that includes weekly or monthly pickup of green bin organics. If your office is interested in learning more about how we can help you green up this spring, please get in touch with us at info@gojava.ca to learn more about our Zero Waste Office Solutions!


We hope you are enjoying a healthy, green start to the spring and, as always, we thank you for your continued support!


Keep it (what else?) GREEN!
The GoJava Team
