Gang Green

Northstar perused all of the green goodness of the first annual Idaho Green Expo on Saturday.
Towards the entrance the organizers had lined up a camera and attendees had the opportunity to proclaim how they themselves were helping to make Idaho green.We chose to shamelessly plug our business but our statement actually turned out to be "greener" than most. Fortunately, we don't ride bikes resembling the one I drew on the board. The event was really cool, we met plenty of folks that are making some serious efforts towards renewable, sustainable products and services. Check it out here http://www.idahogreenexpo.org/

Coffee Run

Warren was dispatched to pick up this empty beverage container that he had delivered (full of Thomas Hammer coffee!) to a downtown office late last week. The container barely fit into his Chrome messenger bag and I watched as he narrowly avoided getting doored by an inattentive motorist and then passed a delivery van rolling back to the Hammer. Nice work #88, take a coffee break.
