The Newport News City Council established the Newport News Green Foundation in 1998 in response to the vast urban development that had overtaken the city. The foundation became an independent nonprofit soon thereafter, and began landscaping along urban corridors to enhance the quality of life for local residents. Today, the Green Foundation acquires spaces within the city and beautifies them with plants to create wildlife habitats and sources of clean air. During regular service days, volunteers come together to beautify a space—clearing, digging, plowing, and planting. Since its inception, the Green Foundation has transformed spaces throughout the community, including 4.84 acres behind the Brentwood Shopping Center and 2 acres at the corner of Jefferson Avenue and McLawhorne Drive.

Realizing that every minute spent primping takes away from their clients' free time, the staff of Body & Sol Tanning Boutique streamlines their services so clients can get in, get bronzed, and get out. Clients can simply walk in to the chain location closest to home, after which they consult with the Smart Tan-certified staff over which tanning method is most suitable for their skin. After deciding on intensity and length of sessions, clients hop into one of the five tiers of UV bed. The salon also offers UV-free options such as the automated Mystic HD booth, which is loaded with four different shades of tanning pigment, all of which seep into skin through the use of heated rays. Clients can choose to deepen tans with a range of Devoted Creations tanning accelerators, or simply heighten a tan's contrast with surgically implanted angel wings or the salon's BleachBright teeth-whitening kits.
Soya carefully balances spectacle and serenity: while hibachi chefs display searing and flipping prowess at fiery tableside grills, a large fish tank bathes the dining room in soft light. The tank contributes to the "inviting and relaxing" vibe cited by the Daily Press, which also praises the "clean taste and variety" of the restaurant's sushi. Like scuba divers armed with waterproof makeup, the kitchen preps fresh seafood daily, then pairs it with rice and veggies for colorful maki rolls and nigiri. Japanese entrees such as stir-fried noodles and teriyaki meats round out the menu.
