Stress Reduction

Stress Reduction

Stress Reduction Tip A young lady confidently walked around the room while explaining stress management to an audience with a raised glass of water. Half Full? Half Empty?

Long before starting our business, 20 years ago, we were dedicated to protecting our planet through Green practices. When the opportunity to become a Green Certified Business arose we said, “Pick us! Pick us!” We were the first Green Certified Business in Santa Cruz County. That was April 2004. Now the City of Santa Cruz has taken over the program and we have now re-certified for the third time. Interested in being certified as a green business? One key change in becoming Green was to replace all of our light fixtures with new, more energy-efficient ballasts and bulbs. This saves about $60 per month in our electricity bills. The energy usage difference after upgrading was ... read more
