Clean and Green
Do you eat six pounds of produce every day? (Don’t worry, we don’t either.) But that’s exactly how many fruits and vegetables are packed in each bottle of organic Daily Greens juices. The product uses a cold pressing technique, which allows each bottle to contain the equivalent of nine servings of fruits and veggies. The found of Daily Greens, Shauna Martin, is a breast cancer survivor, so a portion of proceeds go to breast cancer support organizations. Pick up your bottle at a local Whole Foods Market.
