"Is it a sustainable choice?" That's the question Jade Bunk asks herself whenever she's faced with a decision about operating her business. "It's part of who we are and what we believe in," says Bunk, the owner and lead trainer at Fit Body Boot Camp. "It's important to me to look at the environmental and social impact of every choice I make."

Working from that mindset, Bunk has purchased much of her facility's equipment from stateside companies–and often opts for high-quality used equipment–chooses green cleaning products and stocks her workout areas with mats made from recycled plastic bottles. She also chooses alternative cleaning methods–like steam–whenever practical, uses no-VOC paints throughout her facility and keeps the lights off whenever she can. "We investigated installing LED lights, but we didn't use enough lighting for them to make sense," Bunk says.

One thing that has definitely made sense for Fit Body Boot Camp: subscribing to the Green Power Tomorrow Program. A member at the 100% level, Bunk embraced renewable energy as an easy, affordable choice that fits in well with her ethos of sustainable business management. "Every business has to decide what matters to them and act to make it happen. Some of our choices have been a bit more expensive in the short term, but they're worth it when you consider the long-term benefits to the environment."

The cost for green power is nominal–Bunk will pay an extra $30 a month–and will offset 10 tons of carbon dioxide and over 6,800 pounds of coal each year. "It doesn't take much to make a difference," Bunk says. "Plus, you never know when your choices might influence someone else's–think of the impact that could have!"
