Fresh Efforts To Go Green!

Just when you think things couldn’t possibly get better…they do!  Lifetime is now one of seven busineUntitled.jpgsses actively participating in the Utah Industrial Energy Efficiency Program (UIEEP). The program, which was initiated to help industrial customers increase their efforts in energy efficiency, has already seen massive energy savings.  And that’s not only great news for Lifetime, but for the members of our community.


UIEEP is already taking leaps and bounds to encourage businesses to reduce their energy intensity and emissions, provide training and technical assistance as companies like Lifetime apply energy-saving efforts, and give credit for energy efficiency successes that maximize performance.


As those who know us well can testify, Lifetime has been dedicated to the environment and our ability to reduce, reuse, and recycle—from recycling and reusing our own plastic and metals, to efforts in making our packaging streamlined and fully recyclable.  This is just one more amazing step towards making the earth a better place to live!  And, come on…who doesn’t want that?

Position at Lifetime Products: Product Marketing Administrator. I am the copywriter and administrator for the marketing department—writing copy for ads, scripts for videos, editing copy, and just about anything else that’s needed of me.  I get to write and edit for a living…it’s pretty much a dream come true!

How long at Lifetime Products: Since May 2012

Topics I blog about: Lifestyle and News

Favorite products from Lifetime: I love being outdoors!  Most of my family vacations while growing up were camping or fishing trips of some sort, and so I absolutely love our kayaks and tent trailers.  There’s just something amazing about getting away from the loud noise of regular life and entering a place that’s peaceful just with family or friends, whether it’s grand mountains or a mirrored lake.  But I'm definitely itching to get my hands on quite a long list of Lifetime Products.

On a typical Saturday afternoon you can find me: My Saturdays consist of at least five things—errands & cleaning, hiking, reading, writing, and spending time with family & friends.  I’m a big fan of relaxing, and the reading and writing is like a mini vacation; a chance for me to go into another world and spend time with my other “friends” for a short while.  Sometimes that relaxation extends into my family and friends time as I catch up on new movies or television shows…I don’t even dare list all the shows I’m fanatic about (Vampire Diaries, Fringe, New Girl, and believe me when I say the list goes on...).   But most of all, living in Utah gives me a plethora of hiking trails.  Taking an hour or two to get away is just the recharge I need.

My favorite escape: BOOKS.  I’ve purchased (shhhh) about $300 worth of new books in just two months and read about twenty of them so far.

Other blogs/websites I can’t get enough of:  I’m a self-diagnosed Facebook addict, but I love reading friend’s blogs, MSN Wonderwall (Yes, I’m a celebrity gossip enthusiast), GoodReads, Barnes and Nobel, Pinterest, and GrammarGirl (a grammar must-know!), and of course my own writing/book review blog: WritingMindCelebrities.blogspot.com.

Cold Weather Gardening
Gardening in Vermont, I know about cold weather. The growing season is short and intense. I dont dare go away in May or early June, because if I dont get everything planted, I may miss the opportunity to get annual plants in the ground soon enough so they produce before a fall frost. Then theres September and October when frost can come at any time. Yes, its a crazy place to garden, but Ive learned some great tips over the years to make the gardening easier and more productive. Here are some of my best tips: Build the Soil- With the short growing season and cool temperatures, the soil needs to be in tiptop shape to produce the best annual flowers and vegetables. I like to add a 1- to 2-inch thick deep layer of compost on my beds every spring and work it in. Its cheapest to buy the compost in bulk from a garden center or have...
Use Shed Doors for Storage Space
Last week Lifetimes Home Garden Guru Charlie Nardozzis Tip of the Week provided quick pointers of how to properly clean and store your garden tools for the winter. His tip reminded me of a handy idea I picked up while visiting BackYards Inc. a few weeks ago. (BackYards Inc. is the official outlet store for Lifetime Products with five locations in Utah.) Lifetimes plastic sheds come with two peg strips, which I installed on the shed walls. (If I recall, I think thats where the instruction photos show to install them, as well.) However, to maximize storage space, did you know you can also install the peg strips on the shed doors! Handy, huh? Are your peg strips already full? No problem! You can buy additional peg strips, as well as otherLifetime shed accessories like shelves, lights, shutters, and more at Buylifetime.com. An...
Outdoor Retailer Wrap-up
Another year of Outdoor Retailer (OR) has come and gone. For those of you who dont know what OR is, it is the largest outdoor industry trade show in the whole world! It is held in our backyard in downtown Salt Lake City. This year, we also had the industry Demo Day in our backyard as well because it was moved from Jordenelle Reservoir to Pineview Reservoir in Ogden Valley! We spent all day on the beautiful banks of Pineview paddling and talking to folks from all over the world. We were super busy and had tons of people stop by to give our boats a test run! What a day! After Demo Day, the indoor show begins. We spend months preparing and designing both our booth and new kayaks to unveil at the show. This year we went all out, even more than we have in the past. We showcased all of the kayaks in our lineup at the Outdoor Retai...
