re you part of the Green Renaissance? If so, you realize that our daily choices collectively impact the environment—for better or worse. That means we’re ideally investing in solutions that benefit us and the planet. A big part of living green is removing toxic chemicals from our living spaces. According to the EPA, indoor pollution levels can range from 2 to more than 100 times higher than outdoors, due to the volatile organic compounds (VOCs) evaporating from chemical-laden home cleaning products. That’s rather a high price to pay for a clean house! Happily, there are safe, effective alternatives. Something as simple as switching your dishwasher detergent can significantly reduce the level of pollutants that you introduce into the environment. If You Care hits a green home run with their super
concentrated Automatic Dishwasher Tablets, which combine a potent blend of mineral and plant-derived cleaning ingredients with powerful enzymes for pristinely clean dishes. These little powerhouses are biodegradable, septic tank and grey water safe, free of toxins, chlorine and phosphates, and never tested on animals! They also vastly reduce emissions/ energy consumption related to transport and handling, due to a 45% to 55% reduced product weight compared to other brands. All this, plus your dishes will glisten! How cool is that? Eco-friendly If You Care Automatic Dishwasher Tablets, Dish Liquid and Laundry Detergents are sold exclusively at Whole Foods Market. And from August 14 thru August 27, Laundry Detergents are $2.50 off and Dishwasher Tablets $1.00 off at the register. Green home, healthy planet! Visit www.ifyoucare.com
From 8-14 thru 8-27 – Detergents are $2.50 off and Automatic Dishwasher Tablets $1.00 off at the register exclusively sold at Whole Foods Markets.

re you especially social in the summertime? That’s when many people thrive on gathering outdoors with friends, entertaining in the garden, hitting the beach, and hosting BBQs, parties, picnics—even neighborhood “happy hours” in local parks! So what should you serve? Along with traditional summer favorites like grilled meats and seafood, coleslaw, colorful veggie salads, and fresh fruit platters, most people greatly appreciate a range of delicious, hydrating beverages. Clever hostesses usually make sure to offer non-alcoholic options in addition to wine, beer or cocktails. That’s in part because kids are often in the mix, but also because not everyone drinks liquor, and even those that do partake enjoy refreshing thirst quenchers too, especially in the daytime. It’s also smart to alternate cocktails with non-alcoholic beverages, both for wellness and safety. It’s a crowd-pleasing move to incorporate iced tea, lemonade and sodas along with the adult beverages. And yet, many of us are no longer comfortable serving traditional sodas, as they’re invariably laced with high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) and/or artificial additives. Healthconscious people are scaling back on HFCS, for a few reasons. While commercials claim that it’s fine in moderation, that may not be accurate. Some research suggests that this cheap, heavily processed sweetener
on any TWO (2) Zevia Zero Calorie Soda 6-pks of cans or 4-pks of glass bottles, any flavors
interferes with your body’s metabolism, making it difficult to moderate consumption. That may be because HFCS is thought to slow down the secretion of leptin in the body—a crucial hormone that informs you when you’re full, so you can refrain from overeating. If this is accurate, it might help explain our American obesity epidemic. According to the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, the consumption of HFCS increased 1000% between 1970 and 1990, far exceeding the changes in intake of any other food or food group. HFCS now represents 40% of caloric sweeteners added to foods and beverages, and it’s the sole caloric sweetener in conventional soft drinks in the United States! For decades there were no healthy alternatives to these sodas for people who love tasty, cold, bubbly drinks, but want to avoid sugar-dense, processed soft drinks for various reasons. Thanks to Zevia, however, it’s a brave new world! With zero calories, and no artificial sweeteners or sugar, all natural Zevia sodas are the perfect alternative to both sweetened and diet commercial sodas. Zevia has created a sparkling, delicious array of beloved flavors like Lemon Lime Twist, Cola, Ginger Ale, Orange, Strawberry, Black Cherry, Caffeine-Free Cola, Grape, Cherry Cola and more. So now when it comes to birthday parties, Monday Night Football, pizza night, potlucks, holidays and other festivities, you have the ultimate soda solution! As to life on a daily basis, who doesn’t love a tasty, guilt-free quencher between meals, after a workout, relaxing in the evening, or on the go? Best of all, you can feel good about enjoying Zevia when it comes to your waistline, as well as the health of your family! You’ll also be delighted to know that all Zevia sodas are 100% GMO-free. Now that’s soda perfection! Visit www.zevia.com
