HOW THE HECK DO YOU SELL TO STARBUCKS?

0a799000d67844ffa039b5cf8e71466b       I have  been working with a start-up company now for about a year and a half.

Eco-Distribution, Inc.   Among our other offerings we have a line of truly Green Cleaning products that work better than their caustic counterparts, and are just as economical.

We have been successful in winning evaluations, and been escalated to corporate procurement in several very large and notable companies, and the orders are coming in.  There is one enigma, I truly could use some help with.  We have demonstrated these cleaning products to several local Starbucks, and the managers all get very excited.  I just talked to a regional manager in California and she agreed that they absolutely fit the Ethical, Sustainable, and Green goals of the Starbucks corporation.

She then told me that I had to go to Corporate, and there were no names she could give me to help.  I spent an hour on their website, and found all sorts of documents on Corporate Responsibility, Vendor Practices, Shipping Procedures… you get the idea.  Nothing on how to become a vendor.

I tried customer service, and was on hold for a half hour to be told to call Corporate.  I called Corporate and was referred back to the customer service number.   Has anyone out there any knowledge of what the process REALLY is.  I mean, they have to buy cleaning materials from somewhere?   This stuff is a perfect fit, its new technology, and I know they can’t make it for themselves in China.

Help!!!!!

Forget Surfing or Eating Fish for the Next 6000 Years! Fukushima radiation hits San Francisco

By DNA | December 26, 2013

 

This shocking video was taken December 23rd 2013 with a quality Geiger Counter at Pacifica State Beach (Surfers Beach), California.

Geiger Counter used:

Background radiation is 30 CPM. Near the ocean it’s 150 CPM. The fine mist coming from the ocean waves seems to be what makes the Geiger Counter jump.

We all must come to the realization that swimming in the Pacific Ocean (let alone eating anything out of it) is a thing in the past. And it’s only going to get worse, as it’s unstoppable. This is by far the worst man-made disaster in human history, and our garbage media and government say nothing.

Nobody in California Works Any More

IMG_1591I am so ready to move to the country.

With the interest rates low, the wife and I are thinking very seriously about purchasing a house it lower Washington State near Portland.  I’ve lived in California all my life, and in pretty sure I will miss the weather.

I can buy a Sun lamp.

We live in a cul De SAC,  a two bedroom unit in a triplex.  It might as well be an apartment building.  Nobody works in an office any more.  I can prove it, they are all out in the yards cause its nice out, but good freaking grief!

After my workout this lunch, I went to take some sun in the back patio.  First, there are currently three neighbors working on their homes.  One next door remodeling a bathroom, one across the street repairing to list the house, and another across the  street that has been having their front deck/patio worked on for the past 8 months.  No end in sight.

The next delight comes as the tenant next door opens her slider (literally 5 feet from my head) and takes 5 minutes to coax her new puppy to go potty.  Then the girlfriends next door, after parading up the driveway talking on their blue tooth for a half hour, somehow let their dog escape.  I had to wait a good ten minutes for Dylan to be captured and returned to captivity.  All of this, about 10 feet from me on the other side of the fence.

Forget the nap in the sunshine.

Oh did I mention that its garbage day?  We live in one of those special recycling zones where they have to send a separate truck to pick up the trash, recycling, and greens.

The afternoon holds forth a symphony of lawn blowers as no fewer than three separate gardeners take a total of about an hour and a half rotating internal combustion engines.  God forbid that they ever show up at the SAME FREAKING TIME !

I’m off to Starbucks where its actually relatively quiet.  Dreaming of Salmon Creek, right outside of Vancouver Washington.  Sunshine is highly over rated.
