Ralph Oats Upholds Wellness International Network's Green Corporate Culture

PLANO, TX--(Marketwire - December 28, 2007) - Ralph Oats and Cathy Oats, Founders of Wellness International Network, Ltd. (WIN), an undisputed leader in the health and nutrition industries, known for their top-selling weight management line, BioLean System, are pleased to join their city, Plano, Texas, in efforts to reduce, reuse and recycle in the coming year.

In 2007, the City of Plano challenged residents to increase their recycling to meet a city-wide goal of 25,000 tons from October 1, 2007 to September 30, 2008, and Ralph Oats and Cathy Oats have dedicated Wellness International Network in joining this effort with an increased company-wide recycling program with multiple recycle stations throughout their 81,000 sq. ft. facility.

"For over a decade, we've encouraged our employees to find new ways to save energy and be environmentally conscious," says Ralph Oats. In 1995, WIN went "paperless" when they incorporated document imaging programs to maintain company records. More recently, WIN replaced the use of Styrofoam peanuts with recyclable paper packing materials in their thousands of shipments of health products, including the well-known weight-loss supplement BioLean II. Many of WIN's nutritional supplements are also packaged in high-density polyethylene (HDPE), or number 2 recyclable plastic bottles and the company employs energy efficient lighting.
