Laura,

We are all beginning to learn how important it is for restaurants to use green products for cleaning. Restaurants are one place where cleanliness and sanitation are essential. Currently most restaurants continue to use products which are toxic to the surrounding environment and unhealthy for customers and employees. At Community Market we offer a wide range of truly green products that you will feel good about using & at a price you will appreciate!

One product is our All Purpose GREEN Cleaning spray:
One spray for all surfaces. One smart solution. This All-Purpose Cleaner whisks away grease, dirt, and grime in one shot, without a trace.

Powers away dirt, grime, and grease without streaking or dulling surfaces.
Dermatologist-tested.
No phosphates, chlorine, or other unpleasant ingredients that could harm the environment.
This is a product you, your employees & customers will appreciate! To learn more about this and other great green cleaning products, please contact us. Make sure to ask how you can buy them at wholesale price!

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: Hamish Jolly: A shark-deterrent wetsuit (and it's not what you think) - Hamish Jolly (2013)

Hamish Jolly, an ocean swimmer in Australia, wanted a wetsuit that would deter a curious shark from mistaking him for a potential source of nourishment. (Which, statistically, is rare, but certainly a fate worth avoiding.) Working with a team of scientists, he and his friends came up with a fresh approach — not a shark cage, not a suit of chain-mail, but a sleek suit that taps our growing understanding of shark vision.

TED: Michel Laberge: How synchronized hammer strikes could generate nuclear fusion - Michel Laberge (2014)

Our energy future depends on nuclear fusion, says Michel Laberge. The plasma physicist runs a small company with a big idea for a new type of nuclear reactor that could produce clean, cheap energy. His secret recipe? High speeds, scorching temperatures and crushing pressure. In this hopeful talk, he explains how nuclear fusion might be just around the corner.

TED: Sarah Lewis: Embrace the near win - Sarah Lewis (2014)

At her first museum job, art historian Sarah Lewis noticed something important about an artist she was studying: Not every artwork was a total masterpiece. She asks us to consider the role of the almost-failure, the near win, in our own lives. In our pursuit of success and mastery, is it actually our near wins that push us forward?

TED: Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces - Matthew Carter (2014)

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.
