A Time for New Habits

April is Earth Month!

One of the things we've been thinking about as we spend more time inside is developing new (good) habits! So as you're brushing up on your knitting, learning to play the ukulele, or dialing in your handstands... it's also a great time to think about how you're managing (and reducing) all the waste you create on a weekly basis.⁠

At GU, we think portable sports nutrition is awesome for fueling on the go, but we also know that using single serve packets creates waste. That's why we fund a collection program through TerraCycle that converts empty sports nutrition packets into useful things like bike parking stations, playgrounds, tools, and more.⁠

So here's our Earth Month challenge for you:⁠

  1. Educate yourself on what can be recycled with TerraCycle (hint: we accept ALL brands!)⁠
  2. Repurpose or create something to hold all of your used sports nutrition (hint: shoe box, drink mix canister, or reuse an old Ziploc bag)⁠
  3. Sign up for our "Sports Nutrition Brigade" through TerraCycle⁠ (hint: click the link in our bio!)⁠
  4. Download and print a free shipping label and drop off your box at a local UPS⁠ (hint: you don't need to go inside the UPS store since you already have your label printed)⁠⠀
