Sandra’s Celebrates National Chicken Month While Celebrating the Earth

The chicken brand’s Upcycle campaign focuses on sustainability.

In honor of National Chicken Month this September, Sandra‘s all natural chicken brand is highlighting its commitment to sustainability.

The chicken brand launched #UpcycleWithSandras, a unique sustainability campaign designed to encourage consumers to repurpose and reuse product packaging to reduce waste. To help with ideas, the inside of Sandra‘s packaging features different printed designs of fun, reusable items like bookmarks, thought bubbles, recipe cards, coupons and patterns that can be colored to create something new.

“We value sustainability and being good stewards of the environment,” says Marketing Manager Alicia Mort. “We’ve taken something that would normally be thrown out and given consumers options to reuse it for another purpose. Whether it’s cutting out one of the mustaches to snap a fun photo or coloring in the patterns printed inside the box, the Upcycle campaign is a way to encourage thinking ‘outside of the box’ and promote sustainability.”

In conjunction with the campaign, the company that makes Sandra‘s chicken also aims to reduce waste and build a broader sustainable culture within its operations.

“Our staff is focused on identifying long-term sustainability projects that helps the company work toward its goal of becoming a zero landfill operation,” says Mort. “Sandra‘s is doing our part by encouraging consumers to think about creative reuse of the product packaging.”

During National Chicken Month, Sandra’s is also celebrating its commitment to producing chicken products with better-for-you ingredients. The brand recently introduced its premium chicken entree line featuring antibiotic-free chicken and superfoods now in five flavor varieties: Cauliflower & Chia, Quinoa & Veggie, Kale & Pepperjack, Cordon Bleu, and Broccoli & Swiss.

With a mission to make people, “live, laugh and love your Mom,” he called on his own mother to co-host his show.

Cool products for your car

You don’t have to be driving around in the newest model of a sports car to feel amazing in your ride. There are easy (and relatively cheap) upgrades that you can invest in to make any car instantly cooler.

It’s important that any modifications or add-ons you choose for your vehicle are legal and don’t cause a distraction, which could lead to a car accident. It’s much more important to be safe than to look good; however, if you ever are involved in a collision, speak to a Greenville car accident lawyer.

A license plate bottle opener
Obviously, this bottle opener that fits perfectly on your license plate shouldn’t be used for any alcohol for the driver, but it will certainly make you popular at any parking lot parties, and even allow you to open an ice-cold glass bottle of Coke on a hot day – perfection.

Car headrest pillow
If you’re someone who drives a lot, you might find that your car seat can get pretty uncomfortable. Invest in these comfortable headrest pillows for a little more support during those long road trips.

Solar-powered coaster lights
Put these handy lights into your cup holders, and when it gets dark, they’ll light up in neon color and look amazing. They’re not too bright to cause an issue, but look great when you put a bottle on top, and the light shines through.

Car mats
As standard, the mats you tend to get with a car are just standard-issue black mats that seem to show up all of the dirt, dust, and debris. There are so many other options available to buy to make your car seem a little bit fancier and show off your own personal style.

A mini air diffuser
The only thing better than a car that looks good is one that smells good too! Most car air diffusers plug into your cigarette lighter and take up about the same space as a travel mug. Choose a scent that makes you happy, and switch it up seasonally, but stay away from lavender as that will make you sleepy!

A cigarette lighter multi USB plug
Being able to charge your phone while you drive is a huge benefit, especially if you are using it for music or directions. Invest in a multiplug with several USB slots, to allow your friends to all charge their phones too.

Colorful car seat covers
Not only do the car seat covers help protect your seats from crumbs and stains, but they can also really brighten up your interiors and have your car looking brand new, even if the seats underneath are a little worn out.

An air freshener
The original car accessory – you can get air fresheners in many different scents and with designs on from your favorite sports team to TV themed ones.

So whether you’ve got a brand new ride, or you’re still driving your first beat-up truck, these accessories can really make your car cool.

The Mask Diva:

Whether a mask is lined, filtered, has a wire nose bridge, just as important are the energy factors that play into the creation of our lives. Use thegems to accessorize your mask, lift your mood and assist in your manifestations.

Color, for instance: “Blue is communication, Self Expression, Safety… The darker the blue the more authoritative it and the more sterile it becomes. The lighter the blue, the warmer and more tranquil it becomes. There’s also green in the hue: a heart chakra color; compassion, gravity toward positivity while negativity is dissolved. The image of regal stature of royal blue is real. The stone Turquoise takes on these color qualities but also enhances the journey to self-realization, inner wisdom, exercising will-power and speaking one’s truth with grace and ease!”

Step 3. Blend this adaptogen-fortified delicious cream on high till smooth.

Step 4. Drizzle in 1 bar of melted Addictive Wellness Beauty Chocolate.

That’s it! So easy and sinfully, deeply delicious… Don’t forget to share!

Pine Pollen & Mango Popsicles

It is not exactly a confession since who doesn’t love those sweet treats on a hot, steamy day? But I only love popsicles that are not hiding a chemical sh*t-storm. Let’s see what go into this delicious experiment.
• 3 ripe, perfect mangos
• 2 teaspoon of raw local unfiltered wildflower honey

Blended it all up, poured the smooth puree into a popsicle maker and let your freezer do the rest of the work! The decorative dips are shredded coconut, plus white and black sesame seeds.
