Elemental Essentialz? Announces their Safe Cleaning Project & Innovative Approach to Packaging

Elemental Essentialz® Announces their Safe Cleaning Project & Innovative Approach to Packaging













Improve Health. Waste Nothing.


McKinney, TX (PRWEB) June 01, 2012

Elemental Essentialz is pleased to announce its response to two major problems with a majority of household cleaners: dangerous chemicals and packaging waste. Their innovative approach to packaging will save resources and minimize waste, while investing in the health of future generations.

Elemental Essentialz began last year, with a chemistry teacher’s spring break project: making soap, and grew very quickly into a full-fledged corporation. “As a chemistry teacher and former developmental specialist, I have seen firsthand the increase in developmental problems,” stated Elemental Essentialz’ founder, Theresa Harris. “With research linking chemicals found in our homes to an increase in various health issues, I felt an obligation to take what I knew and formulate cleaners that were both safe and effective.”

Focusing on safety she started with ingredients that were edible. “I knew that basic kitchen ingredients could be used to clean, but also realized I needed to consider customer expectations, like color and consistency, storage conditions and shelf life.” Harris added, “It took a great amount of trial and error, and product testing to finalize the formulas, but we are thrilled with the results. All of the feedback we get, from how beautiful the bottles are, to how great they smell and work, is positive.”

Using wine bottles and letting customers refill them, will minimize the need for single use packaging, decrease total energy consumption and will virtually eliminate packaging waste. Customers will appreciate, that in addition to being good for the planet, refilling will also be economical. The refill price will be just over 1/2 the cost of the initial bottle.

Elemental Essentialz products contain no petroleum products, dyes, chlorine, animal products or phosphates. They are non-toxic and never animal tested. Currently, Essentialz’ products include their All Purpose Cleaner, Glass & Granite Cleaner and Soft Scrubbing Cleaner. They have just recently added a line of coconut milk soaps, shea butter lotions and lip balms; all of which are handmade in McKinney using essential oils and natural ingredients.

Elemental Essentialz’ Story

Harris’ unique packaging idea came to her, while sitting in a restaurant. As she watched glass bottles go from table to trash, her decision was made. She contacted local restaurants and wineries and started collecting the majority of her bottles from two local businesses, Landon Winery and ZinZen Wine Bistro. Harris was then introduced to Green Earth Soda Blasting, another innovative and green company located in McKinney, to remove the labels. “Green Earth SB was a life saver. They took care of our bottles in 1/10th the amount of time it took us,” Harris said. Very quickly, Essentialz outgrew the kitchen where it all started and currently manufactures out of Terrell, TX.

Elemental Essentialz is teaming up with local markets and small independent retailers to offer its products to consumers. Their line of safe and zero-waste products are also available at FRESH by Brookshire’s in Tyler, TX, a new concept food store, and the first grocery store in East Texas to be LEED certified. “We were delighted to team up with Fresh, and love attending their local activities and special events,” said Harris. “It is a great first location for us. They share our philosophy and are a perfect fit.”

This Saturday, June 2nd, Elemental Essentialz will be at Fresh for their Taste of TEXAS and 2nd Annual Steak Cook-Off, which supports the East Texas Food Bank.

About Elemental Essentialz

Elemental Essentialz creates household cleaning products that are safer for customers and better for the planet by eliminating dangerous chemicals and minimizing packaging waste. It is a new company revisiting an older way of doing business. With their line of natural products and unique solution to packaging, Elemental Essentialz is realizing their mission: to improve health and waste nothing.

In addition to being available for purchase online or at Fresh, Elemental Essentialz will be available soon at all 9 Central Markets in TX. For information regarding new retail locations, projected dates, and upcoming markets at McKinney’s Chestnut Square and Deep Ellum, visit their website or contact the company via email.

In-Pipe Technology’s G2 Dosing Panel


Wheaton, IL (PRWEB) May 31, 2012

In-Pipe Technology® Company, Inc. announced today a four-week webinar series entitled “Overflow Prevention with Biological Control of Fats, Oil, and Grease” to discuss how In-Pipe’s green sewer collection system treatment is an effective, environmentally-friendly, and fiscally responsible method to prevent fats, oil, and grease (FOG) related wastewater overflows and reduce accumulated FOG deposits.

John Williams, President & CEO of In-Pipe Technology states, “In-Pipe drastically accelerates the natural degradation of FOG in the collection system, thereby removing blockages and occlusions from the pipe and significantly reducing the occurrence of FOG-related sewer overflows, as well as the requisite equipment and manpower required for the physical removal of these blockages. We look forward to sharing our success stories with the municipal wastewater sector.”

The webinar series “Overflow Prevention with Biological Control of Fats, Oil, and Grease” is scheduled to take place as follows:


    June 5th – 11am Central
    June 12th – Noon Central
    June 19th – Noon Central
    June 26th – 2pm Central

For registration information please contact us.

In-Pipe’s patented technology includes regularly adding a high concentration formulation of facultative, naturally-occurring, non-pathogenic bacteria to strategic locations throughout the sewer system in accordance with an engineered plan. This entails zero capital cost and no additional energy requirement. Performance in the collection system provides increased capacity within the plant, forestalls costly upgrades, and extends the life of the existing infrastructure.

In-Pipe Technology offers specialized technical expertise, strong customer understanding, and deep resource knowledge. Since In-Pipe uses natural, biological methods that complement the treatment plant’s own processes, In-Pipe is a sustainable solution ? environmentally and economically.

Woodmere Announces Expansion of Orlando Affiliate ? Woodmere Advisory Group

Woodmere Announces Expansion of Orlando Affiliate – Woodmere Advisory Group











Robert Green, Executive VP, Woodmere Advisory Group


Orlando, FL (PRWEB) May 17, 2012

Woodmere Capital Group announces its investment in the expansion of its wholly owned affiliate, Woodmere Advisory Group (WAG). From centrally located offices in Orlando, FL, WAG will work with customers throughout the continental United States, specializing in commercial loan workouts and solutions for commercial lenders in need of disposition targets, and advisory services to borrowers in distress.

In making the announcement, Woodmere Capital Group Chairman & CEO Henry Rodriguez said, “Woodmere Advisory Group will offer innovative market solutions, while operating with the principles of transparency and integrity that are the hallmarks of our entire organization. This extends to customers, employees, financial institutions and all other stakeholders. We anticipate rapid growth and anticipate opening other sites throughout the United States shortly.”

The newly expanded affiliate’s executive leadership team is comprised of veterans of the real estate mortgage lending industry. Serving both creditors and borrowers where creative solutions are needed, WAG will help commercial property owners whose financial models have been impaired by recent economic conditions to stabilize their relationships with their lenders.

WAG will strive to create balanced, “win-win solutions” for both lenders and borrowers in order to facilitate amicable resolutions. Additionally, WAG will help lenders seeking exit strategies for specific loans and portfolios. Another key element of WAG’s expanded business model will be referrals to capital funding sources to provide borrowers and lenders of distressed commercial properties with potential exit strategies. Some of these strategies may be with WAG’s affiliates.

With over $ 1.3 trillion in commercial real estate loans maturing within the next few years and no real exit strategy for the more than 40 percent of borrowers deeply in distress, borrowers and lenders are looking for high quality third-party resolution specialists that operate in an atmosphere of transparency and superior ethics.

WAG’s continued success has been partially due to its policy of minimal up-front fees. Aside from a basic fee to cover evaluation costs, WAG collects its fees, in large part, only upon a successful resolution.

“Our minimal up-front fees allow us to qualify customers for our program through an Evidentiary Package. If a borrower or lender does not meet our criteria, we will tell them why and not give them false hope,” says Robert Green, WAG Executive Vice President.

WAG Customer Services Manager Linda S. Morgan said, “The commercial debt resolution industry has been one of rapid growth, but one in which excessive up-front fees have made it a magnet of conflict by firms looking to collect up-front commissions rather than amicable resolutions. WAG has placed the incentive on successful resolutions rather than the acquisition of new customers.”

About Woodmere Capital Group:

Woodmere Capital Group is a family of real estate investment and service companies operating throughout North America and organized to provide asset acquisition, management and disposition services for private equity. Those companies include Woodmere Realty Advisors, LLC; Woodmere Equity Solutions, LLC; Woodmere Capital Management, LLC; Woodmere Investment Management, LLC; and Woodmere Advisory Group, Inc.

Billy Klüver and Robert Rauschenberg working on “Oracle (1962-65)” in Rauschenberg’s studio, late 1964-early 1965.


New York, NY (PRWEB) February 03, 2012

The Robert Rauschenberg Foundation is pleased to announce the recipients of its new Artistic Innovation and Collaboration grant program (AIC) to advance the values promoted by artist and activist Robert Rauschenberg during his lifetime and career. The AIC grant program is the first national competitive grant program for the Foundation. It propels the organization’s philanthropic mission of cultivating, promoting, encouraging and supporting the production and exhibition of art.

“This grant program is rooted in the defining characteristics of Bob’s legacy – fearlessness, innovative practice, cross-disciplinary exploration and collaboration among artists – and supports new work in a time when funding artistic experimentation is receding. We are delighted to be able to support projects that are pushing the boundaries of artistic practice and helping artists and cultural organizations investigate new territory,” said Christy MacLear, Executive Director of the Foundation.

In 2011, the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation invited 65 arts organizations across the country to apply for the inaugural grant cycle. After a competitive application process, nine grants, totaling $ 800,000 were awarded to a diverse group of innovative projects.

List of Artistic Innovation and Collaboration Program grantees 2012:

Grantees will be small and mid-sized cultural organizations with a strong track record of creative risk-taking, experimentation and identifying emergent talent, for whom the Foundation’s grant will be significant in enabling them to achieve their artistic goals and leverage other resources.

Grants are generally in the range of $ 50,000 to $ 150,000. This amount can be given over a period of one to three years. These creative initiatives may open the doors to new ideas that many people might not understand now but which will become increasingly relevant in the future.

Activities of the Foundation include managing the artwork, exhibition and scholarship of Robert Rauschenberg as well as the growth of the philanthropy programs which intersect art and issues central to Robert Rauschenberg’s concerns during his lifetime. The Robert Rauschenberg Foundation’s programs now include the new grant program for artistic innovation and collaboration and direct assistance for the advancement of art.

Green Builder® Media Announces Exciting New Project Developments
At the VISION House® in INNOVENTIONS at Epcot®













Green Builder Media


Eastsound, WA (PRWEB) February 03, 2012

The creativity and imagination of Walt Disney Imagineering along with the work of many hammers, saws and drills are bringing to life Green Builder Media’s VISION House exhibit at INNOVENTIONS. Projected to open late spring in celebration of Earth Day, this experiential exhibit will educate and inform visitors on the benefits of green homes and offer sustainable living ideas that INNOVENTIONS visitors can take home to enhance their daily lives. Exponential change, after all, is the result of the incremental improvements made by individuals every day.

This is exactly what Green Builder Media, North America’s leading media company focused on sustainable living, had in mind when it launched the VISION House in INNOVENTIONS project in late 2011. “The purpose of the VISION House in INNOVENTIONS is to engender sustainable thinking,” says Green Builder Media CEO Sara Gutterman. “By showcasing advanced green products and demonstrating a wide spectrum of cost-effective, sustainable choices, the VISION House in INNOVENTIONS provides homeowners with real solutions for contemporary green living. We anticipate that each visitor leaves the exhibit with specific ideas that can help them make their homes and lives more resource efficient and environmentally responsible.”

This week, Green Builder Media announced the addition of new product categories to the VISION House in INNOVENTIONS experience, including:

    Energy efficient windows and doors from Pella
    Hardwood flooring and cabinets from Armstrong World Industries

Inspired by Green Builder Media’s VISION House demonstration series, the interactive exhibit will highlight the major themes of whole-home automation, energy generation and efficiency, water conservation, indoor environment quality, security, integrated multi-generational design, and durability.

As guests tour the home, they will be educated on intelligent products and advanced technologies, such as:

    Electronic vehicle charging station by Siemens
    Chevy Volt electric vehicle by GM
    High efficiency heating and cooling systems and controls and innovative whole-home automation system and door hardware by Ingersoll Rand.
    Durable and environmentally friendly exterior systems, including smog-eating tile roofs, cultured stone, bricks, permeable pavers, and trim by Boral
    Ventilation solutions to improve indoor air quality by Panasonic
    Water-conserving fixtures, faucets, showerheads, and home standby generators by KOHLER
    ENERGY STAR certified home appliances by Bosch
    LED lighting solutions by SYLVANIA

After visitors return home, primed with magical ideas to make their own castles more sustainable, they can extend their INNOVENTIONS experience and access ongoing information about sustainable living through Green Builder’s dynamic online, mobile, digital, and social media solutions.
