USA Hauling & Recycling held a healthy company picnic on Wednesday, August 5th in East Windsor, Connecticut. The picnic was part of their Healthier Futures initiative, which promotes living healthy lifestyles.
The picnic included assorted wraps, grilled chicken, shrimp and salmon, assorted salads, veggie chips, healthy drinks such as vitamin water and flavored seltzer, as well as frozen yogurt bars, all from Highland Park Market. During the picnic, a “Skip It/Eat It” guide was also given out, which suggests which meals to choose and which to avoid at common fast food restaurants such as McDonalds, Burger King, Wendy’s, Starbucks, Subway and Taco Bell, breaking down calories, fat grams and sodium in each meal. You can download the guide here.
USA Hauling & Recycling has also sponsored Know Your Numbers, which was a free biometric screening, allowing employees to get numbers associated with their health such as blood pressure, cholesterol, body mass index (BMI) and blood sugar. The company will continue to expand their Healthier Futures initiate in the future.
