Re-Pac Bags – Holiday Gift Guide Show -Propel Media Event

Life can be a bag full of cherries, and when it is, Re-Pac Bags are thee bags that really does the trick.

Re-Pac Bags are eco-friendly, mold, mildew, water, stain and leak resistant.  Re-Pac Bags can easily be hand washed, after each use, or simply thrown into the dishwasher or washing machine, that simple.  I especially like the sun glass case, one of my favorite bags.

I will be traveling to California  this month and will be using my Re-Pac Bags for my toiletries.

They look so much better than those plastic bags,  more stylish and cost effective.

So this summer pack your items into a  RE-PAC BAG, I am.

Walk This Way

Need a reason to get off your beach towel?   Did you know that walking in the sand burns up to 50 percent more calories than walking on a sidewalk, track or street at the same pace.  Why?  The muscles in your butt, thighs, feet and ankles have to work harder to push off the soft sand.  This forces you to expend more calories.  Plus, the uneven suface of the sand requires you to stabilize your core, so you’ll strenghten your abs, without even realizing it.

When you are walking on sand, be sure to wear sneakers so that you won’t injure yourself on any sharp rocks or seashells.  Sneakers will also support your foot and ankle on the sands’ uneven surface.

So go ahead,  take a walk on the beach for 15 minutes and get the same benefits as a 30 minute street walk.  Cut your walking time in half – and get the same (or better) benefits.
