That’s a Wrap

Take a hard look at this here tote. Notice anything unusual? Aside from the fact that it’s the perfect size to fit, say, munchies from your latest trip to the grocery store or goods from your holiday shopping spree, it’s made from repurposed CLIF wrappers. Our friends over at TerraCycle started an eco-revolution, taking a range of non-recyclable waste materials and turning them into eco-friendly products. And so, we joined forces to help reduce the number of energy bar wrappers ending up in the landfill. They’ve created a whole slew of products made from our wrappers. Stylie (and scrumptious) totes,…

A Texas (Cycling) Star

Work with us here at Clif Bar and you may end up a champion. Well, that and do a whole lot of training. Cristin Walker, our Houston Field Marketing Crew Captain has always been a champion in our minds, but now she’s got the title and the trophy to prove it. Read on to hear her recent account of the road to the top… I pulled into my driveway last night after five weeks of training in LA. Turns out it paid off because I'm now the 2009 Elite Women's Sprint National Champion, the 500m National Champion AND the…

Some may see it as a sign of the Apocalypse. Others may think it’s awesome.

In case you’ve never watched it, Family Guy centers on the dysfunctional Griffin family and pokes a lot of fun at American culture. Check out the footrace at 50 seconds into the link below (“Brian’s Got a Brand New Bag”—Season 8: Episode 5). Good thing we can laugh at ourselves! Watch it here. Oh, and…

New Orleans—Day 5

Eric's back with a few words on his final days in the Big Easy and wrapping up a week with In Good Company. Well, we just finished our work here in New Orleans for In Good Company and I have to admit it—exhaustion's setting in. Five emotional days of home construction, garden building, partying through the wee hours and just generally running ourselves far past “E” each day have really put our bodies and minds to the test. As fatigued as we all are, though, everyone is in great spirits—a testament to the strength of our incredible group and their…

New Orleans—Day 4

A few days late but without further ado, a recap of Day 4 of In Good Company. Eric fills us in on his adventures in the Bayou and a few (more) reasons why New Orleans is such an amazing place... Well, if you’ve read any of the previous New Orleans blogs from earlier this week, you are well aware that there is a group of us down here in the Crescent City building a house for a family displaced by hurricane Katrina. We've been working hard. Really hard. And one thing I have truly learned so far is…that I am…
