    Hi SGS Team,
    Congratulations! I continue to be inspired by your work.
    I have a quick question: do you ship outside of the U.S.A.?

    Kind regards,
    Sheryl

      Hi Sheryl,

      Thanks for your support! All of our current nutritional plans are printable PDFs and emailed directly to you inbox. So no shipping needed, and no wait! Items like our limited edition tote bags are currently only available for purchase in the US and Canada, but we’re working very hard to expand that + ship world wide! And our book is available world wide too! We love The Book Depository because they ship around the globe, for FREE!

    The book is the best! You ladies continue to inspire! Thank you and “Park” on.

    Hi,
    I bought your Rawkstar Jars and tote bag a while back. I use my bag every day as well as the jars. I would love some more jars ( I broke one), but don’t see them on your site. I know I can use mason jars but I like to see the Rawkstar label. Any chance you will have them for sale again!

    thanks

    • SGS Rawkstar 3.6.2017 at 5:26 am #

      Hi Alice,

      Oh no! We’re so sorry your jar broke. Unfortunately we don’t have any plans to re-release the mason jars, but we will be coming out with more tote bags – if you love yours. I will share with our team that you’re looking for a Rawkstar Mason Jar. As we have received other requests. So maybe we’ll have to look at doing another limited release.

      Cheers!

    I often use a blender rather than using ever green smoothies.

      Hi Sophia,

      We’re all about blending too! 🙂
