All this bad news has slowed the "healing" in credit markets and led to further weakness in equity markets.

Waste Reduction, Recycling and Composting

 

Imagine a business with no dumpster for trash at the loading dock.  Imagine a process manufacturer with no drums or pallets stacked up outside behind its plant.  It must be a small one or two person office, not a manufacturer, right?  Wrong.  It is EZ Brite Brands, a Westlake, OH manufacturer of over 40 soaps and cleaning products that is fast approaching $1,000,000 in annual sales.  In the sustainability community, sometimes we forget how important the reduce and reuse parts of the reduce, reuse, recycle triad.  EZ Brite is a shining example of all three.

Ironically, I'd just read the 1 to 1 Weekly article on how Nationwide Insurance had improved customer engagement with just 3 words.

Customer Service

 

It seems like just about every town in America has a Mexican restaurant.  Some are good - some aren't.  From the outside you can't typically tell a good one from a bad one based on the typical hole-in-the-wall buildings they often occupy.  My hometown, Wadsworth, has just such a Mexican restaurant.  I happen to think that it's quite excellent even though you couldn't tell from the retro-fitted Stuckey's that it now occupies.
