Life Time Fitness and emagineGreen Team Up To Go Green For Earth Day

“A healthy body and healthy environment go hand in hand. emagineGreen is partnering with Life Time Fitness on April 18th from 8am to 1pm to educate people about ways to go green for Earth Day. Valley residents and their families are invited to workout for Free during the open house weekend. emagineGreen will have greenCoaches at all four locations providing information about how fitness-goers can begin their ecoJourney. Samples of emagineGreen’s line of eco-friendly products will also on hand. And 10% of all emagineGreen purchases made during the event will be donated to the Life Time Fitness Foundation. emagineGreen’s network of greenCoaches facilitates fun and educational ecoParties. Each greenCoach is a trained professional who simplifies the going green process for ecoParty guests and customers.‘We’re the Tupperware party of the green movement. Our workshop participants are amazed to learn how simple changes can add up to big benefits for mother earth,’ said Tonya Ensign, emagineGreen Founder. ‘After attending an emagineGreen workshop, participants don’t view water, waste or energy the same as they did before the emagineGreen experience. They have told us ‘I can never look at a plastic bottle or plastic bag the same way again.’ Since February of 2008, emagineGreen customers have saved over 2.9 million one-time use plastic bottles from ending up in landfills by committing to reusable bottles. They have also diverted over one million plastic grocery bags from being used. And 158 families have started composting after learning that food is the number one component of landfills by weight. This saves nearly 20,000 lbs of food scraps from landfills each month.”
