There are fewer things that make me happier than seeing brands, big or small embracing the environment and acknowledging that it is important and even though going “green” is already incredibly popular overseas and more the norm than the exception to the rule, sadly it is not seen often enough in South Africa but Tangled Tree is changing that in the face of wine industry for South Africa. Their philosophy makes mention that they will not change the world by being caring towards the environment but changing the world and the face of the industry is not something that will simply happen over night, just like Rome wasn’t built in a day, companies embracing the change to address a happier world for the planet will too take time. Baby steps will get us there eventually.
How does Tangled Tree make a difference to promote a happier and healthier world for all? Well, for starters their bottles are not glass like most wine bottles, Tangled Tree uses plastic containers using 100% recyclable materials which reduces the amount of waste and energy used in creating them. They are also assisting in promoting the bird life and wildlife in the Robertson region.
Living in Cape Town, everyone is self-proclaimed connoisseur of fine wine, I’ll be the first one to admit I am no expert but I just enjoy the occasional glass of wine when I am not on my detox or follow up healthier eating plan but every now and then the occasion calls for a glass of something and what better than a glass of wine which was not only made with love, care and expertise but what about a glass of wine that was made with love for nature and our planet, Earth.
The wine I have waiting for me for a special day was a gift from the first #BWB meeting from Tangled Tree which I am so looking forward to having with a friend one day soon.
It’s also refreshing to have such a quirky and interactive brand on Twitter @TangledTree and Facebook, be sure to check out their website here for more information on their entire wine offering!!
Disclaimer: This item was a gift, this has not altered my view of the product in anyway I am just so excited to try it 🙂
Just when I thought I read, heard or even said it all, I haven’t.
Both men and women put themselves in extreme positions while wanting to lose weight. I, myself lost 15kg in 3 months while on the GABRIEL METHOD. It’s not extreme at all, it’s the best way to lose weight in a healthy way. It’s more about a lifestyle change. But we are not here to talk about my weight loss.
These are the WEIRDEST ways of some people losing weight. I can’t imagine it being healthy at all!!!
1) URINE INJECTIONS
Why my word why????
How it works: This is when your regimen involves daily injections of urine from pregnant women! One weight loss counselor explained that its not the urine, but the hormones in the urine that works the weight loss magic. Sheryl Paloni lost 43 pounds and more than 30 inches in 5 months thanks to this wackadoodle method. “It’s human chorionic gonadotropin. It tricks your body to thinking its pregnant” said Iris McCarthy of Success Weight Loss Systems.
2) HAVING SEX 7 TIMES A DAY
How it works: One of the worlds heaviest women is burning up to 500 calories by having sex with her ex-husband. Ok, so you see, this is what happened. Pauline Potter got a title in the Guiness World Record for being the heaviest woman in the world. But, she was divorced while receiving this “achievement”. So her ex decided to hook back up with her and now…. Well, they are doing the dirty and she’s losing the pounds. She has lost over 98 pounds since getting back together with her ex. “I can’t move much in bed, but I burn 500 calories a session. It’s great exercise just jiggling around.” Alex, her “exercise equipment” only weighs 140 pounds. Apparently, he does most of the work.
3) PAINFUL TONGUE PATCH
How it works: Cosmetic surgeon Nikolas Chugay will do a procedure on your tongue that will make it painful for you to eat. He stitches a small piece of polyethylene mesh onto your tongue, making it painful to eat solids, forcing a low-calorie liquid diet only. “It is uncomfortable to eat solid food, so people will all of a sudden remember, I am only to eat liquids.” said dr Chugay. Apparently over 60 people tried this method and have lost an average of 20 pounds each over a period of a month.
Ok. So which method would you try? Personally I would try out number …….0!
I guess most people would opt for number 2, but remember. Not everyone is qualified to operate heavy machinery. 😉
