Reuse those empty bottles and packaging

Let’s make an extra effort to upcycle our PURE packaging this Earth Day. It can be a fun thing for the family to do and it helps reduce our environmental footprint.

Think about how much you recycle daily. Each week, my recycling bin fills up before the week is even over. Recycling is a must; it’s the first step in reaching sustainability. Through recycling, products are broken down into raw materials to be made into new things.

Another great alternative to recycling to upcycling, or repurposing the old. Upcycling  keeps waste from entering our landfills and reduces the amount of CO2 entering our atmosphere that happens when we use resources to create new products. It can also save you money.

Check out these creative ways to upcycle our PURE packaging.

Glass bottles (GoYin and superfruits):

  • Paint it and use as a vase.
  • Fill with sand or shells for decorative purposes.
  • Store lentils or rice and top with a cork.
  • Insert a candlestick for decoration.

Bags (ENERGY, Shakes and GPS):

  • Shred or cut into strips and use as cushioning when packaging gifts in boxes.

Tubs (ENERGY, Organic Sulfur):

  • Use to hold small screws and nails.
  • Create planters for flowers or herbs.
  • Make organizers for a bathroom, kitchen or workbench.
  • Organize kids pencil and pen organizer.
  • Make a piggie bank.

Small bottles (Metabolic ONE, Organic Sulfur):

  • Storage, storage, storage.
  • Create soap bottles. All you need is a twist-on dispenser spout.
  • Create a spice organizer.

Large bottles (CalciuMK+ and Daily Build Liquid):

  • Make a bird feeder and help nature at the same time. Puncture sides and add sticks for landing places. Attach rope and fill with birdseed.
  • Create a drip feeder to use for irrigation. Puncture with holes and place underground, near a plant, slightly above the soil surface.

Spray bottles:

  • Mix water with essential oils and refresh the air.
  • Fill with weed repellant, undiluted white vinegar and spray away.
  • Store glass cleaner: Mix ¼ cup rubbing alcohol, ¼ cup distilled white vinegar, 1 Tablespoon cornstarch, 2 cups warm water and 10-15 drops essential oil.
  • Fill with an insect repellent – 2 Tablespoons witch hazel, 2 Tablespoons olive oil, ½ teaspoon vodka and 100 drops essential oil.
  • Wash your produce with 1 part vinegar and three parts water.
  • Fill it with windshield cleaner and keep in your car.

PURE Destinations: Bermuda

Bermuda is a group of islands like none other — it’s where British culture blends with laid-back Caribbean beats and where pastel-colored homes, pink-sand beaches and green fairways dot the landscape. PURE is bound for this spectacular island getaway this August on the PURE Destinations 2019 Summer Cruise.

Bermuda, the main island, is only 22 miles in length and 2 miles across at its widest point, so no matter where you stand, you’ll have breathtaking views of blue for as far as the eye can see. Not just any blue, but the most beautiful turquoise blue!

The island is divided into districts, or parishes. Three major roads run from east to west: North Shore Road, Middle Road and South Road. This is the largest port on the island and where our cruise ship will dock, at King’s Wharf.

Points of Interest

Hamilton, the capital, is centrally located on the island. This is Bermuda’s financial center with a population of just over 1,000. Wave to Bermuda shorts-clad businessmen on their scooters making their way to work. Explore the town by foot and admire the brightly colored buildings. Excellent golfing and shopping opportunities abound as well as museums, art galleries and gardens. Notable things to see:

  • Bermuda Aquarium – discover Bermuda’s underwater ecosystem
  • Fort Hamilton – historic site with breathtaking views
  • Front Street – clothing, jewelry and souvenir shopping
  • Crystal Caves – discovered by boys looking for their lost cricket ball
  • Queen Elizabeth Park – garden with statues and monuments

St. George is a quaint town with cobblestone streets, historic buildings and colonial architecture. This is Bermuda’s former capital and a UNESCO World Heritage site. It is located on the east end of the island. Notable things to see:

  • Tucker House Museum – a look at early Bermudian life
  • St. Peter’s Church – oldest Anglican church in Western hemisphere
  • Tobacco Bay beach – underwater coral reefs
  • King’s Square – local gathering place
  • Fort St. Catherine – dioramas and antique weapons

The Royal Naval Dockyard is a 19-century fortress located at the west end of the island, in Sandy’s Parish. This historic site was used during the War of 1812. It was a strategic base for England in the Atlantic and an active shipyard during the First and Second World Wars. It is now home to shopping, dining and entertainment. Notable things to see:

  • Dolphin Quest – interactive encounter
  • National Museum of Bermuda – maritime and island history
  • Snorkel Park – see natural wonders of the sea
  • Clocktower shopping mall – galleries and shops
  • Bermuda Rum Cake Company – a traditional treat

Invest in silver, invest in your team

Are you up for a spring challenge – one that will set you on the path to a lustrous, shining, silver lining? Join Sprint to Silver and watch your team explode!

From March 26 through April 29, we’re giving $75 to any IBO or Bronze Director who obtains the rank of Silver Director or above. If they reobtain Silver rank a second time, they’ll get $50, for a total of $125! That’s on top of all the other bonuses you may already receive.*

The common metaphor, “silver lining,” connotes hope, optimism and comfort. It is something that is attainable and usually right around the corner, if you look hard enough. Find that silver lining for yourself and your customers.

We encourage you to achieve Silver as quickly as you can. Reaching Silver puts you that much closer to being able to take advantage of all the bonuses PURE has to offer. Reaching Silver will also help create growth in your team and help you earn residual income. It’s where you want to be.

Tips for reaching Silver:

  • Plug into your upline leader. Talk to them, ask them questions and share comments. They’ve walked in your footsteps and have the resources you need to succeed. Work with them and climb to heights that you never thought possible.
  • Track progress. Anyone who has successfully reached their goals knows the importance of tracking their progress. It helps you stay focused, it puts things into small, doable tasks, and it lets you see which activities give the best results.
  • Have and share a mantra. Mantras can lead to transformation. It’s like starting a new habit. Speak your mantra every day; each repetition brings you closer to success. For example: “This year is my turning point. From here on out, I am taking consistent action to change my life. My life will never be the same.”
  • Take advantage of social media. Build morale, create camaraderie and form new relationships. Share how these products improved your family’s wellness.

Henry Ford once said, “Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success.” You are in the business of growing and developing the skills of your people.

If you want more, Sprint to Silver! Attune your mind to abundance today and drive yourself and your team to new heights.

That silver lining is waiting for YOU. We can’t wait to see what great things you will accomplish this month.

PURE featured in Direct Selling News

PURE was highly praised in the January edition of Direct Selling News for its steady growth in both sales force and revenue in the past two years. This edition is titled, “What you focus on grows”, which so aptly describes the transformation PURE has experienced in just a short amount of time.

The article, “A Promising Path for PURE”, recaps PURE’s growth from the creation of GoYin to the formation of PURE. Daren Hogge, PURE CEO, helped start GoYin several years ago and it eventually merged with another company in 2008, a company founded by Dae Geun Jung, now Founder and Chairman of the Board for PURE. PURE then underwent a rebrand in 2017 to become PURE: People United Reaching Everyone.

In the article, Daren Hogge refers to the HI-ACT principles as how he wants to build the company and how he wants its IBOs to build their businesses. HI-ACT is an acronym for the principles of Honesty, Integrity, Accountability, Commitment and Trustworthiness.

“We put in some founding principles that were pillars,” Daren explains. “One of them was the philosophy of our products that have come to life through the CORE4 — to cleanse the body, balance the body, build the body and provide focus for the body. All the products we developed, we created to make sure they fit into those categories and help to deliver Whole Health. The other principles we came up with are what I term the HI-ACT.”

The article continues to talk about how we’ve modernized our products to make them more mainstream with what consumers see in the marketplace — from the redesign of the GoYin bottle for our tenth anniversary celebration to bolder ENERGY packaging. And just recently, our GPS performance line was recognized by Informed Sports Certification as being safe for use by professional, collegiate and Olympic athletes.

Other notable recognition:

  • Strong leadership in its Independent Business Owners (IBOs)
  • 7-Day and 28-Day Detox Programs
  • CORE4 products featured in the 2018 Physicians’ Desk Reference
  • PURE Rank Bonus may be one of the most lucrative in the industry
  • Partnership with Disabled American Veterans (DAV)
  • Global presence with new markets in Western Africa and Thailand
  • Partnership with Gray Gaulding, PURE IBO and NASCAR driver

Going forward, Daren’s strategy is to continue to look for strong leaders who share the company’s HI-ACT principles and want to share them with like-minded individuals. “I believe that we have only scratched the surface here in the U.S.,” adds Daren. “I think we’ll see quadruple growth over the next few years from the projections we set two years ago — and we’ve exceeded — and where we’re headed over the next four years.”

PURE will keep the momentum going continuing their commitment to deliver Whole Health with high-quality products for physical health, opportunity for financial health, relationships for personal health and opportunities for social impact for philanthropic health.

National Hug a G.I. Day

Today, March 4, is National Hug a G.I. Day! It’s a special day to literally “march fourth” and embrace a soldier with our love!

The men and women of our country sacrifice beyond measure. Not only do they fight for our freedom, but they serve as role models during natural disasters, they provide humanitarian relief, and they deliver Whole Health! Today, and every day, we owe them a great big hug, and you can do that right here by giving back to the Disabled American Veterans (DAV): https://livepure.com/giveback/.

General Dwight D. Eisenhower said in 1945, “The truly heroic figure of this war [is] G.I. Joe and his counterpart in the air, the navy, and the Merchant Marine of every one of the United Nations.”1  Heroes are everywhere. We admire them for their courage, their leadership, their outstanding achievements and their noble qualities. At PURE, we pride ourselves on the many heroes who choose to help others maximize their true potential through health and wellness.* These Independent Business Owners (IBOs) know what it means to give back and they have a tremendous passion for others.

There’s no question that the direct selling industry is a great avenue for active and retired military and their spouses. There is flexibility in owning your own company and no formal qualifications are required. Probably one of the greatest things about direct selling is the value that the industry puts on improving the lives of others. At PURE, we strive to deliver high-quality products for your physical health, an income opportunity for your financial health, relationships and events for your mental and spiritual health and opportunities to give back for your philanthropic health.

Ryan Takao leads by example

We are proud to announce the 2019 New Year, New You Challenge winner, Ryan Takao! Not only did he go above and beyond sharing the PURE Detox programs, but he will be joining PURE on the PURE Destinations cruise to Bermuda! This exceptional achievement is right on the footsteps of Ryan winning the Team28 Challenge in 2018 which took him on the PURE Destinations cruise to the Eastern Caribbean.

Ryan participated in PURE’s Detox Programs and experienced great success with them. People saw that he was taking care of his body and achieving real results and naturally wanted to follow.

When asked how he found success through the Challenge, Ryan said, “I prayed a lot. I stuck with the guidelines and trusted the system. In the end, it’s not about what I did. It’s about everyone else’s stories. It’s not about comparing ourselves with others, but rather sharing with others. I modeled it, encouraged it and supported it. It’s about unification, not division.”

Ryan truly has a knack for helping others. He has demonstrated great passion for sharing Whole Health through his effort and dedication. He has shown us, and the world, how helping others can be mutually beneficial.

Regarding the detox itself, Ryan encourages those who want to participate to listen and learn from what others have done. Be consistent with your detox, and be social.

Ryan calls San Antonio, Texas home. He joined PURE as an IBO (Independent Business Owner) in October 2014. Through the success he has had telling his own story and promoting the Detox, he has reached the rank of Platinum. His favorite product is Mangosteen for its antioxidant benefits and ability to help support the body’s natural defenses by enhancing the functions of the immune system.*

On March 16, 2019, PURE will celebrate the official grand opening of the Thailand market at their offices in Bangkok. Leaders from around the globe will be there to celebrate this accomplishment and new market.

PURE now provides its nutritional products and opportunity in four markets, increasing its global footprint across Southeast Asia.

“I’m excited about the new market expansion. The Thailand office will now be the hub for future expansion across Southeast Asia,” said Tim Hough, PURE Vice President of International. “We are fortunate to have such quality leaders in Thailand who understand the business model and have elected to share it with others.” Tim, who has traveled to Thailand throughout his career, also noted that this opening further creates strategic relationships that support the company’s mission to deliver Whole Health.

James Watson, Vice President of Southeast Asia said, “We are thrilled to serve the Thai people, offering wellness products, an income opportunity and social support. Our commitment is long term, offering a unique combination of ten years of stability and a fresh, new opportunity in Southeast Asia.”

The Thailand office will offer the latest innovations in skincare coming from Korea, a leader in the skincare industry. There will be additional product line extensions including nutritional products that are sourced and manufactured globally.

The opening of the Thailand office takes the number of PURE’s global offices to four, including the United States, Taiwan and Korea. PURE has NFR (Not for Resale) programs in Canada, Japan, Australia and New Zealand which allow people to purchase PURE’s products directly for personal consumption.
