Congratulations to us…

Did you see us on USA TODAY on-line we did a video for Martin Luther King Day. Videos were to tell about what you think King would be telling people today. Ours was about the need for reduce, reuse, recycle for our generation.

Did you see us on ABC 11? People creating birdhouses were filmed  making them for the birdhouse competition at the NC State Arboretum.

 

We have been given two awards in the retail sector category of the Triangle Green Business Challenge. We are in the company of major corporations like IBM, so we not only talk the talk, but walk the walk!
