The Green Truth

I am beyond disappointed that Pressed Juicery doesn't strive to always use organic produce. Huge concern for me since I'm a big fan of Greens 1 and the last thing I want to be gulping down is a bottle of pesticides:/ Below was the response to my email asking if they use organic produce... 
Also, if you ever got pressed juice from Whole Foods come to find out they don't use organic either. What a buzzkill!

Info ---@pressedjuicery.com



Hi Nicole,

Thank you for your email.  We strive to use organic produce whenever possible, but due to the high volume of juice that is being demanded of us sometimes a product becomes unavailable and we have to resort to conventional produce.  Please let me know if you have any further questions.

Yours in health,

So fresh and so clean

I'm not sure if this would fall under the category of an eco- car freshner, but I'm going to go with it. I haven't tried it, but a Trader Joes Employee suggested that I leave a bar of this soap in my car and it works as a great car freshner. Hmmmm... Let you know how it go's!

My massage therapist expanded my horizons after my recent visit with her when she told me about a salt water cleanse. She went to India on a retreat where she learned about this and I couldn't be any more fascinated.
