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: 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.

TED: Jeremy Kasdin: The flower-shaped starshade that might help us detect Earth-like planets - Jeremy Kasdin (2014)

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."

TED: Norman Spack: How I help transgender teens become who they want to be - Norman Spack (2013)

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.
