Fit for Green
Fit for Green gamifies the creation of renewable energy in the gym using social media as a platform. Today there are several companies that retrofit gym equipment so that energy created by users can be captured. Fit for Green will partner with these companies so that the ROI from these energy capture systems becomes more about leveraging social media, green energy concepts, and friendly competition to draw people into the gym. This new ROI model will be a catalyst for renewable energy machines in all gymnasiums replacing calories burned with watt/hours created as a measure of fitness accomplishment.

 Guayaki Yerba Mate

Yerba mate is a stimulant from the South American Atlantic Rainforest that encompasses the strong energizing effects of coffee, more antioxidants than green tea and the euphoric qualities of dark chocolate. It provides a distinctly focusing form of energy and does not lead to the upset stomach, crash or jitters as common with other stimulants. Guayaki Yerba Mate works with indigenous groups in South America, providing fair trade wages, reforesting/preserving the rainforest, and producing the highest quality shade grown organic yerba mate available.

Guayaki’s yerba mate comes from the leaves of a holly tree that grows indigenously throughout the South American Atlantic Rainforest.  Our company’s Market Driven Restoration Business Model allows the indigenous rainforest groups that we work with to keep their rainforest intact while growing their yerba mate under the rainforest canopy rather than clear cutting the land for traditional farming practices. Guayaki’s mission is to steward and restore 200,000 acres of rainforest and create over 1,000 living-wage jobs by 2020.The rapidly expanding University Hot Mate Brewing Program allows universities to brew yerba mate next to coffee for students. Customized Education Stations at the brewing station track each university’s contribution to the rainforest by the amount of mate that they are consuming through our third party verified impact reports. This program educates students on sustainability through commerce while providing them with the nourishment and energy they need for long hours of studying. http://guayaki.com/
