Impact Fitness – a Planet Fitness franchisee – addresses the key barriers to fitness accessibility by providing members in “fitness deserts” with affordable prices and an inclusive, non-intimidating environment. The company operates fitness clubs in Michigan and Indiana, two states that are among the lowest ranked in the country on such key health indicators as blood pressure, obesity, and cholesterol.
Founded in 1985 in Houston, Texas and headquartered in Dallas, Living Earth is the largest recycler of green material in Texas. Living Earth collects organic waste that would ordinarily go to landfills and processes it into mulch or soil, which it sells to landscapers, nurseries, retailers, and homeowners. Organic waste that is landfilled releases methane, a harmful greenhouse gas. By recycling these materials, Living Earth preserves landfill space and reduces greenhouse gas emissions.
