New Hybrid Publix Goes Green

A hybrid Publix Super Market that opened in October at 8833 Tamiami Trail North, in Naples, blends a traditional store plan with the company’s GreenWise concept, offering shoppers a wider selection of Earth-friendly, all-natural and organic products. In addition to regular Publix product offerings, consumers can also ask for advice on food pairings from staff specialists in cheese, wine, deli and other departments.

Publix also closed its 27-year-old store in the Pavilion Shopping Center across the street, transferring workers to the hybrid store and hiring 60 additional employees, for a total of 200 at the 54,000-square-foot space, about 9,000 square feet larger than traditional Publix stores.
 

Location: Market Place at Pelican Bay. For more info, call 239-596-0403 or visit www.Publix.com.

Essential Oils

Replacing toxic commercial cleaning products with homemade natural cleaning products and misting rooms with do-it-yourself non-aerosol room sprays that contain small amounts of essential oil can quickly improve stuffy, stale air.

Making Yoga Mindful Child's Play

Although children in kids yoga classes at Love Yoga Center, in Naples, and the Path of Being, in Fort Myers, are experiencing the same thing as adults that practice yoga—they are enjoying a more playful form of learning and having fun doing it.
