Let’s Fall (Back) in Love with Nature

By Genuine Health

The world has changed so much since greens+ came to be. Twenty five years ago, the internet and social media didn’t dominate our lifestyles and people actually survived day-to-day life without emailing, texting and updating their status – instead they were living it!


It seems that with this sea change of “staying connected” through technology, we’ve been led away from our primordial, genuine connection with nature. That is why, for the 5th consecutive year, we’re partnering with the David Suzuki Foundation in urging Canadians to rediscover this connection, by falling back in love with nature!


This May, we’re once again challenging Canadians to join the 30×30 Challenge by spending 30 minutes a day in nature for 30 days. For five years, the 30×30 Challenge has inspired tens of thousands of Canadians and hundreds of workplaces and schools to cultivate the ‘nature habit’. Participants take to the great outdoors, doubling their time spent outside. Over the years, participants have reported sleeping better, feeling calmer and less stressed. Impressive results for half an hour a day!


Genuine Health is founded upon the healing benefits of nature, and helping everyone discover and achieve increased health and happiness. Today there seems to be an even greater urgency to reconnect people with the ultimate Natural Health Product – integral to our mental, physical and spiritual health – Nature. And it is within your power.
