My Function Drink Story

Last week while I was in LA, I met with a young man named Josh Simon.  He is the co-founder of a company called Function Drinks (www.functiondrinks.com) I met with him because I drink one Function Light Weight every day (a basic Function Freak) and I thank my friend Kimberly Clements every day for giving me my first one.  I wanted to know more about the company and to explore if there was a possible tie in with Mrs. Green.

Now what, you might ask, has a my drink of choice got to do with Mrs. Green, sustainability, eco-friendly or eco-anything for that matter?  Everything.  Because our health, our very own sustainablity as human beings has got to be the genesis from which we FUNCTION on a daily basis. Love those intended puns! (Obesity in the USA at epidemic levels.)

I admit I did not and still do not know all the scientific dots Josh’s partner, Alex, connected to bring Function to market. I know more than I did and I know they had fun along the way.  What I also know is that when I drink a Function in the morning, I am not hungry for hours.And I know that since I have been drinking it,I haven’t  had more than a slight cold – almost a year and a half.  I also know I have lost quite a bit of weight and have kept it off for almost a year. I feel healthy. I feel sustainable. Because of my meeting with Josh, I now know there are scientific reasons why Function has played a role along the way.

And yes, I asked Josh about the plastic bottle my Function comes in.  I loved his answer.  They are doing everything they can to find a more sustainable, earth friendly container.  It’s not easy because they have to maintain the taste and the quality of the drink overall.  I get that.  But they are rigorously researching the next best solution. I really like that.

I also know that  I love spending time with bright, young, creative human beings like Josh Simon and hearing about what he and his partner and their team are doing as their contribution to a healthier world. 

Now here is something wonderful for us to ponder: How great would it be if Function became a drink of choice at fast food restaurants to replace the toxic choices we have now? Should that day ever come,you might catch a glimpse of the Mrs. Green mobile in a drive-through again.  To your health!

    I have heard back from Kimberly Clements from Golden Eagle and Spike Beverage as to where Function can be found in Tucson, Arizona. Let’s pursue with the company as to where we might find it in Maui! Mrs. Green is on it.
