While you are hard-hitting the gym and starting the new diet, Weight Watchers is hard at work in cleaning up the highway. In line with the company’s mission to bring you healthy living, Weight Watchers is also bringing green to your environment. Partnering up with Adopt-A-Highway Litter Removal Service of America, Inc., Weight Watchers sponsored two signs on Highway 60 and Highway 17 in Phoenix, Arizona.
Rated #1 Best Diet Plan in 2011 and 2012 by U.S. News and World Report
Weight Watchers has once again nabbed the top spot in the U.S. News & World Report rankings for #1 best weight-loss diet as well as the new Easiest Diet to Follow category in its newest Best Diets 2012 review.
The news organization cited flexibility and the fact that no foods were off limits as main perks of the Weight Watchers program.
Weight Watchers can fit into the most active of lifestyles. You don’t need to count calories or eliminate the foods you love from your diet. Every food and drink is assigned a single number (a PointsPlus® value), which gets subtracted from a PointsPlus budget when you eat it. Activity can even earn you activity PointsPlus values, which you can swap for extra foodPointsPlus values if you like.
We believe the PointsPlus program is easy to follow because it provides the balance of enough structure to produce weight loss at the recommended rate with enough flexibility to live your life, says Karen Miller-Kovach, Chief Scientific Officer of Weight Watchers International.
Support companies that care about our environment. If you are looking to get back to healthy living in 2013, look into starting a program with Weight Watchers. And know that your new year’s resolution is helping a business that cares.

Greenability is Kansas City’s only green magazine and is the most sustainably produced publication in the area. As a forum for community events and accomplishments, the magazine tells the stories of Kansas Citians who go above and beyond in environmental initiatives.
Each issue is full of resources and ways that readers can get involved in eco-friendly practices and activities. Story topics range from recycling, energy efficiency and local foods, to repurposing, renewable energy and green jobs.
This year, Greenability added a digital magazine edition to its website at www.greenabilitymagazine.com. It also started a Greenability Job Network to help connect job seekers with green employers through a job search website, www.greenabilityjobs.com. Readers can stay connected with weekly news through the free Greenability E-News.
Greenability was recently awarded the Green America second place national recognition for its sustainable paper practices. It has also received awards from Bridging the Gap, Sierra Club and Missouri Small Business Development and Technology Center. For the past four years, the magazine has been nominated for the Kansas City Chamber of Commerce Small Business Award.
Greenability is produced on Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified
paper, which is 100% recycled and contains 60% post-consumer waste. It is printed using soy-based (not petroleum) ink, and the electricity used in the paper production and printing processes is all offset by renewable energy credits. The paper is also Ancient Forest Certified.
In each issue, Greenability publishes an environmental benefits statement outlining the resources saved by its printing practices. Since 2007, Greenability has saved:
- 510 trees
- 226,620 gallons of water
- 150 million Btu of energy
- 13,770 pounds of solid waste
- 47,040 pounds of greenhouse gases.
We’re excited to be partnering with Adopt-a-Highway to help clean up our urban environment,” said Julie Koppen, publisher.
