We live in a time of green energy goals, and a brand new awareness of how we must slow our consumption of non-renewable resources. We all secretly long for Al Gore's approval and so we do what we can for Mother Earth, even if it means significant inconvenience to our daily lives. We now truly understand the negative effects from the continual overuse of fossil fuels, and while using a juicer may take some household energy, here's how much more it can potentially save us in the long run:
- Juicing will give you such a burst of health and energy you will immediately take up walking or bicycling to work, thus reducing your automobile's carbon emissions.
- Juicing can regulate your bowels, meaning less trips to the washroom and thus less daily flushes. It will also reduce your own human gas emission and that has to be good for the environment, no? It's certainly good for your immediate family's environment.
- Many vegetables and some fruits are green. "Green", get it? :-)
- Consuming more fresh produce reduces your consumption of pre-packaged foods, thus producing less waste to place in the trash bin. Less trash is a good thing, trust me.
- Adapting a lifestyle of juicing will give you a longer and healthier life, thus reducing your need for hospitals, medical supplies,and body bags. Body bags are made of plastic. See how that works?
- Juicing will give you a glowing, healthy appearance. Since you will no longer look like an extra from the Twilight movie series, you'll no longer be responsible for mass panic when your neighbors hurry away in their SUV's for fear of being bitten by a vampire. This definitely reduces the carbon footprint.
There you have it, juicing is not only a wise choice for your health it can help solve all of the world's problems! While you mull over these six ridiculous pseudo-facts, heres another great juicing recipe to make you healthier and happier. Enjoy!!
