Getting active with your pals is a fantastic excuse to hang out guilt-free, not to mention a great incentive to treat yourself afterwards – swings and roundabouts, right? We’ve teamed up with our mates at Water3 to give you some group workout inspo that’s a little more exciting than your standard backyard cricket game. more

Whether you’re a water-bottle diehard or guilty of buying a bit too much pre-packaged H2O, one of the biggest hurdles we face when trying to ethically stay hydrated is access to water that’s actually drinkable.

This social enterprise has popped up with a clean and convenient solution to our bottled water addiction, providing both spring water and reusable bottles at water refill stations around Southeast Queensland. more
