I Clean. I Green. I Educate.

A video break from running (although I’m clearly in my usual running gear in this video).  This is worth checking out…

Why am I posting about household cleaners in my running blog?  For two reasons:

1) Messy Bessy is a brand I strongly believe in and support. Messy Bessy products are non-toxic and safe for the environment.  Apart from that, it was actually created to support H.O.U.S.E. (Helping Ourselves through Sustainable Enterprises), a group of enterprises that employ and educate formerly abused, trafficked, incarcerated and impoverished young adults.  I still remember its founder, Krie Reyes-Lopez, conceptualizing businesses she could set up to provide employment to these kids.

2) It’s founder, Krie, had a lot to do with “creating” The Bull Runner. I always share the story about how I started running.  One  fairly ordinary day in 2006, I was having coffee with 4 of my bestest girlfriends when one of them, Krie, mentioned proudly that she could already run on her treadmill for 30 long minutes.

– Krie and her hubby are runners, too –

It was a lightbulb moment for me who had been walking on my treadmill for years.  Why didn’t I ever try running on it?!  That I did the minute I got home. I survived for around 5 minutes of running and later chanced upon the Beginners’ 5k Program on Runner’s World.  The rest, as they say, is history.

Hope you learned a thing or two from the video about caring for the environment and also for those around you.
