Filmmaker, environmental activist, photographer and extreme athlete Sebastian Copeland know a thing or two about extremes outside of athleticism. According to Copeland, patience and understanding what you’re undertaking are a huge part of his expeditions and extreme sports and credits his use of Herbalife products for a great part of his success.
He has been the leader of numerous Polar Region expeditions, as well as having spent 6 weeks both in 2006 and 2007 doing scientific research in the Antarctic Peninsula. He has participated in and led many other expeditions, and with partner Eric McNair-Landry in 2010, he even set a world record by crossing the longest distance across Greenland over ice with kites and skis.
Copeland is also a photographer, using his skills for his activism and personal commitment to fighting for environmental protection. This and his ever-constant mission toward a sustainable future has earned him a seat on the Board of Directors of Global Green, the US extension of President Gorbachev’s Green Cross International.
Herbalife Nutrition creates, markets, and sells personal-care products, nutritional supplements, sports nutrition, and weight management products, and is a world-wide multi-level marketing company.
Company founder Mark Hughes sold the very first Herbalife weight management products from the trunk of his car in February of 1980. The beginning of the company is something that Hughes often attributes to the untimely death of his mother, who suffered from weight complications due to an eating disorder. Herbalife’s initial goal was to change the world’s nutritional habits, and Hughes continued to build the business on that goal.
In 1985, it was considered the fastest growing corporation in America, then by 1988 it had reached as far as Mexico, Spain, Japan, New Zealand, and Israel. As of today, Herbalife Nutrition has an estimate of 8,000 employees all over the world. The company’s headquarters are located in Los Angeles, California, with a network of around 3.2 million independent distributors in 95 countries.
