Fast Facts: December

Working out in the cold is not only good for you, but it also more effective! Our bodies use extra energy to keep warm, and stay warm when it’s cold outside. And once your workout is in high gear (running, cross-country skiing, ice skating, a brisk walk with your dog) you’re also going to start generating heat from the physical activity, doubling down on energy expelled and calories burnt.

#gaanguide to The Bahamas

#gaanguide to The Bahamas

This #gaanguide is a special edition, dedicated to exploring the beauty and adventure of the Bahamas. If you’ve followed the news, you’re likely aware that parts of the Bahamas experienced immeasurable damage and loss as a result of Hurricane Dorian in early September. The islands of Abaco and Grand Bahama, home to thousands of civilians, were destroyed and many residents have lost their homes. These islands are currently closed for travelers while governments, relief workers and volunteers from across the world work to help those still there, and assess what remains for all those that have been displaced. We decided to take action, and since September, for every gaan + co product purchased, we’re donating wipes to those on the ground in Abaco & Grand Bahama who have minimal access to basic necessities.

Fast Fact of the Month: September + Hurricanes & How You Can Help

Hurricane season peaks from late August into September with the most activity around mid-September in the United States. This brings floodwater mosquitoes that are typically 2-3 times larger than an average mosquito and spread harmful diseases. We will be donating mosquito repellent and deodorizing wipes during the months of September and October to families and relief workers in Abaco.
