Impact Projects

You are here for a reason, and it's to leave a lasting impact. Making a positive impact in your own health, wellness, and performance  maximizes your potential. It's what you DO with your potential that makes an impact. 



your carbon footprint

Reducing plastic use, supporting removal of plastic pollution with material repurposing efforts. Adding carbon off-set initiatives as first step towards carbon neutrality. Tree planting organizations, community gardens, rooftop gardens, and planting green walls, offers stress management benefits while improving the local community, with carbon off-set benefits in densely populated areas. 


food rescue

Food rescue programs that take uneaten food items from kitchens and retailers, and repurposes the food for distribution locally. Food is a necessity to life, we need to eat on a continual basis. Food also "has" life and is dynamically existing with the environment in the same way we are. This is why food has a shelf life; exposure to the elements and microorganisms brings it to a point of development when it's optimal for us to eat it. Continued exposure or unnecessary exposure pushes it past this safe time to consume and it can actually do more harm than good if eaten. Because of the time, energy, and resources required to produce food to that critical point of safe-to-eat, we need to use that food to it's fullest potential and avoid waste. Food rescue programs ensure that waste is avoided, and that safe food is distributed optimally. 




Food is necessary to live. For everyone. Food isn't free though, in fact the food industry is the most sensitive to inflation, product loss, and price changes due to fluctuating supply & demand.  Keeping food on the table and a roof over your head requires financial certainty, and with fluctuating costs this means constant analysis of the current cost of food items and allowing for adjustments made that meet your nutritional needs and your current budget. This is skill that can save money, save stress, save waste, and save lives.



Sustainable and scalable methods to provide supplemental nutrition for essential nutrients. Human beings require essential nutrients that we get from our food. Food however isn't always available, accessible, or affordable, for everyone to meet our needs, and our food production systems deplete natural resources and shift ecosystems away from their natural cycles. Supplementing the essentials both to humans and to the ecosystems to regain that balance.
