3 Steps to a Cleaner Planet - with Nuun

At Nuun, we’re always keeping the future of a cleaner, greener planet top of mind and we’ve put corporate initiatives in place to ensure we are all active participants in that mission. That’s why, instead of creating a traditional sports drink pre-made in plastic bottles, we provide portable electrolyte tablets to add to water in your reusable bottle! We partner with ​The Conservation Alliance, and support the fight for our planet through a membership and a ​special edition 4-pack. We also empower employees to take 8 VTO hourse (volunteer time off) per year to use towards a non-profit cause that they want to serve– which has led to many trail, beach, and park clean ups.

If you love our planet as much as we do, we’d love for you to partner with us to expand our clean planet initiatives. Here are 3 ways to think greener!

Join Nuun at Outessa Waterville Valley!

Ladies, not ready for summer to be over yet? Still looking for that epic outdoor experience? You should look at REI Outessa in Waterville Valley, NH next month and here is why!

Playing outdoors can be expensive if you don’t have the gear, intimidating if you don’t have the skill and exhausting if you have to plan it all yourself. REI has all this covered at Outessa plus more. Over the course of a long weekend, you can learn to rock climb, SUP, mountain bike, trail run, hike, take amazing photos, car camp, cook in the woods, build a fire, hula dance (yes, you read that correctly), build life goals, set intentions and so much more. The group of partners that have come together to teach these classes with an all-female staff of REI guides and instructors is amazing, fun and inspiring all wrapped together.

​Watermelon Jalapeno Nuunarita

This year, we’re celebrating our favorite summer fruit by way of a Nuun margarita (or as we like to call it, a Nuunarita)! August 3rd is National Watermelon Day and we’ve mixed up JUST the cocktail for the occasion. Why, oh why do we love watermelon so? Let us count the ways…

1. Watermelon is made up of over 90% water. Bonus points for hydration!
2. It’s the fruit that brings the party. No summer BBQ is complete with watermelon slices.
3. It’s PINK! Come on, it doesn’t get any more fun than that!
4. Watermelon is full of Vitamin A, Vitamin C, and antioxidants. #healthpoints
5. It’s delightfully sweet and refreshing after a hot workout.

This blended margarita is the best of all watermelon worlds. It’s refreshing, spicy, and tasty with a dose of Nuun Hydration! Does it get any better than this? (Hint: No, no it doesn’t.)

Nuuntini Testing: Arnold Palmer

Nothing says summer like an ice-cold lemonade or refreshing iced tea. So,we’re combining the two (Nuun style) for a wicked summer Nuuntini.

The classic Arnold Palmer is a delicious blend of lemonade and iced tea. Ours is prepared “adult style” with a dash of hydration! The Ginger Lemonade Nuun tab brings a sweet citrus finish to this sunshine refreshment. We love the combination with a dark iced black tea and some delicious sweet tea vodka by Firefly Spirits. (What up South Carolina!?)

​Taking the Leap to Trail Running

​Taking the leap over to trail running: tips from a trialed trail runner!

As a lifelong road-runner, the transition to the trail running seemed relatively straightforward. Less traffic. more vertical. Good to go! Fast forward 3 weeks into my debut to the trails, and a severely sprained ankle proved me otherwise. Biggest lesson learned: the sport of trail running is drastically different from hitting the pavement.

So, what did I do? I recovered from my humbling injury and got trail smart. With a few easy adjustments, I made a much smoother transition to #traillife and enjoyed the very best of what trail running has to offer!
