Clean Health: Sweat Till You're Wet

Work up a sweat

If you can work up a sweat for just 1 hour a week, you'll enjoy a range of benefits: reduced risk of heart attack, better mood, and lower blood pressure. I like interval training on the elliptical, with 15 pullups and 15 dips every 10 minutes. Your muscles will become more efficient, so you'll have more stamina for more enjoyable activities that also work up a sweat.

Clean Earth: Pens And Pencils

Make a better impression in your written work... 

Americans buy more than 5.1 billion pens every year, and most are the disposable type, thrown in the trash once the ink runs dry. That adds up to about 770 tons more of unnecessary plastic waste in landfills each year.

Make a better impression in your written work by using long-life refillable pens made from recycled plastic, paper, or timber, or from fully biodegradable bio-plastic (derived from corn starch). Also, look for pencils manufactured from sustainably harvested timber or wood substitutes such as recycled paper, old plastic cups, wood offcuts, and reclaimed denim.
