The Clean Green Life.com continues it's daily digest, focusing this edition on a local Colorado organic farm that grows incredible organic juice.
Online PR News – 28-July-2011 – – At Dr. Mercola's website, he and his team assist people in choosing to live a healthy life. One of the most powerful dietary changes he recommends introducing is juicing. Organic fruit and vegetable juice is one of the most nutrient-dense foods on earth and Dr. Mercola highly advocates it as part of a clean, green life.
TheCleanGreenLife.com, a website specializing in daily information on living simply and healthy, also posted content in their daily digest about a Colorado based Organic Juice farm. While store bought juice typically doesn't have as many nutrients as fresh juice, it is still a valuable part of a healthy lifestyle.
Emily Gill, curator for The Clean Green Life .com put together the following excerpt from the site's daily digest. It discusses organic juice, some eco-friendly construction examples, and how television shows are even catching the clean living trend.
Organic Juice, Super Efficient Construction, And A Good TV Show
Hey everyone, today I put together a little motivational trio of encouraging articles. The clean, green life is becoming more and more popular as people become aware of the importance of living simply. I put together three different snippets from three very different industries. Take a look at some of the cool stuff happening in Local organic farming, green construction, and even a television series. Enjoy.
Drink Local... Drink Organic
Big B's Family Orchard In Paonia, CO
Big B’s has been around for over 40 years pressing this amazing organic fruit into some of the finest apple cider available. We press around 2,000,000 pounds of organic apples each year in small 150 gallon batches to sell throughout the Rocky Mountain Region. Just think, one little bottle of Big B’s Fabulous Juices is the result of 12 months of hard work preparing the trees, growing the apples, picking the fruit, and pressing the juice. I love living and working on an orchard, and I am thrilled that you get to experience a little bit of our orchard every time you drink some of our juice. If you are ever in the North Fork Valley, definitely stop by and I would love to show you around.

Top 10 Extreme Eco Friendly Homes
#4- 995 Longbow Place in Larkspur, Colorado – This 9,800 square foot home is known as “one of the greenest luxury homes ever built.” In spite of the enormous size, the utility bill costs a meager $350 per month. The spacious $4.5 million green home is full of eco friendly attributes like solar thermal panels, 90 percent efficient water heating systems, solar electric panels and wrap-around wall insulation. Recycled and organic materials were used throughout the home, like Volatile Organic Compound-free paints and stains and logs made of composite materials for the outside finish.
I found this cool little Colorado gem and the rest of the Top 10 kind of buried over at this Construction Management Blog.
I personally get really excited to read about some of the cool things that are happening in the world of green construction. There is sooooooo much energy to be saved plus, the power of being in a clean, intentionally built space is no small thing.
TV Series "The Good Wife" Sets Green Example
The CBS series “The Good Wife” is a green production. From the practices on the set to the scenes they film they are being green.
The set has made significant reductions in waste … using soda fountains instead of cans of soda, mostly eliminating paper plates and plastic ware, using reusable water bottles and sending scene / script rewrites electronically rather than printing paper copies.
They even “lead by example” by modeling green behaviors … having characters carry reusable water bottles instead of single use plastic bottles.
See the video for more information … two of the actors and the Executive Producer tell how they live green in real life. This is an impressive story.
You can find the video and rest of the story over at the GreenTechnoLog.
This kind of stuff always gets me excited. When I see all sorts of encouraging things happening around clean, green living, especially from such different areas, it makes me think we are starting to move in a healthy direction. Local organic farms, technologically advanced green building techniques, and even TV shows starting to help out. All very cool stuff!"
