    An Upple a day.... Whole apple in a bottle that's healthier than apple juice.

    An Upple a day.... Whole apple in a bottle that's healthier than apple juice.

    We're delighted to introduce the Upple on the Gutsy Matters Podcast. It's a brand new innovation in the Apple Industry and it's direct from the Savio family Apple Orchard on the Granite Belt in Queensland, Australia.
    The Upple is a whole apple in a bottle and it's going to shake up the apple juice and apple snacks market in Australia and around the world. The health benefits of the Upple greatly outweigh that of apple juice and that's why it's so exciting!
    The Savio family embarked on creating an innovative new healthy whole fruit apple snack product and what they've created is wonderful. They worked with Jeff Schultheiss (from Darling Fresh Consulting) and others to adapt technology, innovate a new patent pending technique and create a product that is as healthy as eating a fresh apple as possible but more convenient.
    It's all in an Upple - literally!
    Upple is a whole fruit product and that's why it's so different to apple juice. Upple is 99.9% apple - the whole apple, including the pulp, peel and all it's nutrition in a bottle with a splash (0.1%) of Vitamin C (ascorbic acid). Unlike most apple juices and orange juices, Upple has NO added sugar, NO added sweetener, it's just whole fruit. Other reasons why Upple is so different to apple juice include not being heated treated, not made from concentrate and not containing any nasty additives - it really is as close to eating a fresh apple, with all it's health benefits, as you can get.
    Upple is made from first grade apples that the supermarkets won't sell because they're too big or two small. That's why Upple's taste so good; just fresh, crisp, first grade whole apples that are imperfect in shape according to the major supermarkets, plus a splash of Vitamin C

    Drop into the green cleaning revolution - free from single-use plastics!

    Drop into the green cleaning revolution - free from single-use plastics!

    Just like food contact plastic, where no-one really knows if the petroleum derived chemicals in the plastic are safe or not, cleaning chemicals in conventional cleaning products are exactly the same - petroleum derived and unknown!
    You may have even found that it's been easier to switch to clean personal care products than it has been to find an effective green all purpose cleaner that's made in Australia with natural ingredients!
    According to inhabitat.com there are over 17,000 petrochemicals available for home use, only 30 percent of which have been tested for their effects on human health and on the environment.
    We all need a clean place to live and work but none of us need to be poisoned by the fumes or residues of the harmful chemicals in the process! And, what about the environment impact? There's all the toxic chemicals we don't understand and all those plastic spray bottles that we only use once then replace instead of refill.
    It's time to clean with environmentally friendly green cleaning products, it's time for a safer choice. It's time for an Australian green cleaning product range.
    So, regardless of whether you call it green cleaning, healthy cleaning, natural cleaning or environmentally friendly cleaning - who is making the gutsy moves?
    Pleasant State are. They've got our wellbeing in mind.
    They are a start up business on the Sunshine Coast of Queensland, Australia who are currently crowd funding their green cleaning 'just add water products' and their custom made glass and silicon reusable spray bottles.
    They have three green cleaning products: an all purpose cleaner, a glass cleaner and a bathroom cleaner. Their 'just add water' green cleaning products are all environmentally friendly and all made in Australia. Now it's simple for us to replace the toxic conventional cleaning products with green cleaning products.
    Pleasant State are making green cleaning our new normal.
    Imagine no longer worrying about the health effects of conventional cleaning products with an unknown cocktail of petroleum based toxic chemical ingredients that you've been using out of habit, but secretly wondering if they are really safe for your wellbeing (the smell, really makes you wonder doesn't it?).
    Imagine using the reusable glass silicone spray bottle from Pleasant State that you fill with warm water, drop in the 'just add water' all purpose cleaner bar, let it fizz and there you have it - safe all purpose cleaning solution that replaces your conventional products and suddenly you've become a sustainable cleaner!!!
    Imagine knowing that your cleaning products don't contain any hazardous chemicals, what a relief! No air pollution either or skin absorption of dangerous chemicals. Just the fresh, reassuring, natural smell of Lemon Myrtle.
    The green clean change is here. Sustainable cleaning with natural cleaning products will replace toxic conventional products and reduce single use plastics.
    We have loved meeting and interviewing the team at Pleasant State especially because they are just as passionate as we are about reducing single use plastics. You'll love hearing their story on the Gutsy Matters Podcast. Not only are they planning to win against the single use plastic challenge with their green cleaning products they're also wanting to prove their fully employee owned business model is a fairer and more ethical way to do business.
    Hear how two people are putting all their determination, persistence and drive behind their big ethics, morals and goals. Let's make the green clean change a permanent one.

    Healthy eating

    Healthy eating

    99% of Australia children aged between 2 -18 DO NOT eat enough vegetables. In fact, very few of us eat enough vegetables, according to a recent Australian Institute of Health and Welfare report. The report found that across all stages of life, Australians generally do not eat enough healthy foods.
    Eating a balanced diet, including sufficient fruit and vegetables, reduces your risk of developing conditions such as heart disease and diabetes. So, what can we as a community do?
    In this episode we speak with Dr Danielle Carter, co-founder of Flourish PYO, a non-for-profit health promotion charity in Toowoomba, Queensland. Danielle gives us great insights into why people don't eat enough fruit and vegetables and how to make changes to our diets in order to prevent chronic diseases.
    The statistics indicate that 99% of Australian children between the ages of 2 to 18 do not eat enough vegetables The statistics for adults are not good either, with only one in thirteen people (7.5%) meeting the guidelines for adequate daily serves of vegetables. We discuss what people do in their communities to raise awareness about the importance of healthy eating.

    Creating Change - one reusable bag at a time

    Creating Change - one reusable bag at a time

    A conversation about the huge problem of plastic overflowing in landfill, floating in the oceans, strangling marine life and causing all sorts of trouble was the catalyst for a fantastic initiative that commenced in 2013 and has enthusiastically spread to over 1100 communities worldwide.
    Jordyn and Tania, co-founders of Boomerang Bags, said the answer to these problems stared them in the face - with one million plastic bags being used every minute, 10.46 million tonnes of fabric waste created each year, and with the willingness and generosity of people from all fabrics of society they decided to do something about the problem. They created a platform that supports the diversion of post-consumer material (waste- in other words) into reusable bags to replace plastic bags and most importantly, start conversations.
    In this episode we are very pleased to chat with Jordyn De Boer. Jordyn's reverence and curiosity, inspired by a life-long love of nature in all its forms, led her to study the natural environment, and now implements those experiences to support communities to create change, one reusable bag and conversation at a time.

    Repairing, recycling and ....building tiny houses with Guido Verbist

    Repairing, recycling and ....building tiny houses with Guido Verbist

    How often to do you hear people say that things don't last as long as they used to ......or that they bought an item that stopped working not long after purchasing it! The War on Waste states that over 85% of furniture we put on the curb isn't recycled and is instead sent to landfill. We have become a throw-away society.
    Did you know that there is 540kg of household waste produced in Australia, per person each year? That is more than 10kg for every single person, every single week. Every year the waste we generate is growing at twice the rate of our population!
    We need to change our attitudes and behaviour when it comes to waste.
    An organisation that is doing just that is the Bower Reuse & Repair Centre based in Sydney, NSW. Bower is an environmental charity committed to reducing landfill. They have pioneered programs to reduce the amount of waste by reclaiming household items for reuse, repair and resale and by encouraging communities to engage in repurposing of preloved goods.
    They have been playing a vital role for more than 20 years fostering a culture of sustainability and in this Gutsy Matters episode we chat to Bower Reuse & Repair Centre's general manager, Guido Verbist.
