Healthy Lifestyles Media strives to be a “green company” so we don’t do massive paper postal mailings. When we do use print and paper, we use recycled and natural fiber-based papers and ecologically-friendly printing processes.

We do the same with promotional products such as t-shirts, caps, key chains, or water bottles. We like cool stuff that won’t get tossed in the garbage so we try to choose things we know you’ll like or if you don’t, will use for re-gifting.

We also look for environmentally-friendly products using sustainable natural resources and recycled or recyclable materials. For our own shipping, we use recycled boxes and non-toxic packing materials.

Finally, we send paper mail only to people who really want the mailings. We don’t like wasting resources by sending things that weren’t requested to people who will only toss them from the mailbox to the shredder. If you ever receive anything you didn’t sign up for, please let us know.

Please join us in using our Planet’s resources wisely!
