Basketball Polar Bear

Basketball Polar Bear

I took a trip to San Diego this past weekend for the International PRSA conference. Awesome information and great speakers. But, four days of workshops, exhibitions, and keynote speakers-- needless to say, it's healthy to take a break! What better place to do just that than the San Diego Zoo! For me, the highlight of the zoo is watching the polar bears. I was so excited to get to the exhibit, only to find him spread out on his belly, fast asleep. After a few minutes of debating wether or not I should move on, suddenly, he opened his eyes and lumbered over to the pool.

Kids and adults alike ran toward the glass, watching with excitement. This polar bear knew exactly what he wanted to do. He swam to one side of the water, grabbed his ball with one humongous paw, and swam to the other side right in front of a group of children. What happened next was hillarious. A game of '1 on 7 basketball' between the kids and the bear! Or was it a game of break the glass?  You decide.  Although, I do wish he had a basketball hoop so I could have seen his shooting form, that could be one big slam dunk!

It’s Earth Day!
Its Earth Day! The perfect time to plant a tree, start your garden, start composting to reuse material, or simply . . . take your recycling out! At Lifetime, were conscious of our community and our role and responsibilities to the environment around us. Did you know that our products are made with a plastic called High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE)? This type of plastic is what makes our products so durable and long-lasting. In making our HDPE products, all plastic materials not used in the initial process are reused! Not only that, but HDPE is an easily recyclable material. The other great part about producing HDPE is that its created using natural petroleum instead of fossil fuels, therefore making the process from start to finish, safer for all!
