Supplement Spotlight: Onnit Earth Grown Nutrients Superfood


EGN Powerfood is a nutrient-dense combination of some of the world’s healthiest natural foods. A highly varied diet is key to optimal health and performance, and while our lifestyle and taste buds don’t always allow the inclusion of such vital vegetation, adding EGN can ensure that you have your bases covered.



We have organized the ingredients into 5 major categories:

Onnit Champion Antioxidant Blend
This incredibly potent combination of Peruvian Purple Corn, Acai Fruit, Maqui Berry, Lucuma, Grape Skin, and Camu. Camu are some of the most potent antioxidants found in the world. Our unique blend is the catalyst behind EGN’s jaw-dropping 90,000 ORAC score.

Onnit Power Green Blend

The best of both land and sea, this combination includes Wheat Grass, Barley Grass, Oat Grass, Kale, Kelp, Dulse, Spirulina, and Alfalfa. These greens are full of micronutrients, minerals, and vitamins in their most natural and available form. They’re also nature’s multivitamin, good enough to fuel a 2000lb racehorse, or a 200lb human.

Onnit Rainbow Blend
Good things come in all colors! Cranberry, Carrot, and Beet Root provide nutrients especially valuable for urinary tract health, eyesight, and athletic performance.

Onnit Detox Blend
We aren’t saints. For every indulgent action there should be an equal and opposite health reaction, and the detox blend is just that. Milk Thistle, Olive Leaf, and Dandelion help the body support and cleanse vital organs like the liver, kidneys, and prostate.

Onnit Digestion Blend
The stomach is the cauldron of health, as the old expression goes. The more we learn about the complicated processes that happen in the body, the more invaluable we understand the gut to be. We start with an 8 strain probiotic to help cultivate the healthy bacteria that break down the food and keep us happy and healthy by supporting serotonin production and immune system modulation. To further ease the system and help the body digest these dense nutrients, we have added some powerful digestive enzymes, Hemicellulase, and Phytase along with Papaya Fruit which contains the natural enzyme Papain.

Product Spotlight: Green Sheep Water



Green Sheep is a bottled water company with a green conscience.

It’s clear that reusable bottles are always the best option for your water needs, but somehow you keep finding yourself buying plastic bottled water. We get it. You’re busy: you’re learning 9 languages (including Na’vi), saving baby Belugas in Alaska’s Cook Inlet, becoming Edward Sharpe’s 10th Magnetic Zero, and not to mention that triathlon you’re training for. And so, your reusable bottle is often left behind. You either forget it or don’t feel like carrying it around all day. Even when you do take it with you, it fails in keeping your water ice-cold throughout your daily adventures and you can’t always find an adequate source to refill it. So when you’re looking for something refreshing to quench your thirst, you end up buying a product that pollutes the environment for thousands of years.

Here at Green Sheep, we work hard to give you a better choice. By offering water in 100% recyclable aluminum bottles, we give you the convenience of traditional bottled water with a reduced impact. Go on to our Product Features page to learn more about the benefits of aluminum.

The Greenest Office Building In The World Is About To Open In Seattle

The Bullitt Center is made from totally clean materials, has composting toilets, and catches enough rainwater to survive a 100-day drought. And it’s 100% solar-powered, in a city not known for its sunny days.

eattle’s Bullitt Centeris being heralded as the greenest, most energy-efficient commercial office building in the world. It’s not that the six-story, 50,000-square-foot building is utilizing never-before-seen technology. But it’s combining a lot of different existing technologies and methods to create a structure that’s a showpiece for green design--and a model for others to follow.

A project of the Bullitt Foundation, a Seattle-based sustainability advocacy group, the Bullitt Center has an incredibly ambitious goal. From the website:

The goal of the Bullitt Center is to change the way buildings are designed, built and operated to improve long-term environmental performance and promote broader implementation of energy efficiency, renewable energy and other green building technologies in the Northwest.

Electric scooters provide a green taxi service in Amsterdam

Dutch company Hopper has introduced an eco-friendly taxi service to the streets of Amsterdam that uses electric scooters rather than cars.

We’ve previously seen green taxi services, including cab4one, which uses mini cars that only transport one passenger to keep carbon emissions down. Now, however, Dutch company Hopper has introduced an eco-friendly taxi service to the streets of Amsterdam that uses electric scooters rather than cars.

Providing a cheap and environmentally-friendly form of transportation, Hopper scooters are intended to be quicker than a taxi car service, as they can weave in and out of stationary traffic to decrease waiting times. Every ride has a flat rate of EUR 2.50 regardless of the distance, although the service only runs in the city centre and Zuidas WTC/RAI areas of Amsterdam.

The company claims that electric scooters produce 68 percent less carbon emissions than a traditional moped scooter. The scooters can be flagged down in the street, booked over the telephone or via the website and are operational from 8am till 8pm Monday–Friday.

The service is currently only running in Amsterdam, but the founders have plans to extend it to The Hague, Rotterdam and Utrecht within the next six months – transportation entrepreneurs, one to bring to your city?

New Method soap bottles partially sourced from ocean plastic

Eco-conscious household/personal care products maker Method offers limited-edition soap in bottle made from ocean-recovered and PCR HDPE plastic.

Method has launched its latest innovation in sustainable packaging: bottles made from a blend of plastic recovered from the ocean and post-consumer recycled plastic. This limited-edition packaging is for a new Method product, a two-in-one hand and dish soap, available exclusively at Whole Foods Market stores nationwide.

Scientists estimate that several million tons of plastic make its way into the oceans every year, polluting the environment and hurting marine populations. Through this new use of recovered ocean plastic, Method says that it is demonstrating how a business can tackle environmental problems, and that there are smarter ways to make plastic than using virgin material. Nearly all of Method's packaging is made from PCR material, which helps keep additional plastic out of landfills and oceans.

"Our goal with ocean plastic packaging is to show that the most viable solution to our plastic pollution problem is using the plastic that's already on the 55601-Ocean-Plastic-Hero-shot-72dpi-md.jpgplanet,” says Adam Lowry, co-founder and chief greenskeeper of Method. “Method's ocean plastic bottle demonstrates in the extreme that recycling is possible. By recycling and reusing plastic to make our bottles, we turn off the tap of plastic flowing into our oceans and take the first, most important step toward solving the ocean plastic problem."

Over the past year and a half, Method employees have worked with local volunteers from Sustainable Coastlines Hawaii and the Kokua Hawai'i Foundation to hand-collect several tons of plastic from the beaches of Hawaii, where the kinds of rigid, opaque plastic needed to make this packaging are most abundant. A portion of the product's proceeds will go to these two Hawaiian organizations as part of Method's efforts to establish an ongoing business model and supply chain for collecting and sorting plastic marine debris.

Method partnered with recycler Envision Plastics to develop a new recycling process to make the bottles. The process allows plastics recovered from the ocean to be cleaned, blended, and then remanufactured into high-quality recycled plastic that is the same quality as virgin high-density polyethylene HDPE plastic.

The new two-in-one soap with odor-eliminating technology is now available exclusively at Whole Foods Market stores nationwide and on methodhome.com. It is available in two fragrances—Sea Minerals and Sweet Water—for the suggested retail price of $4.99.
