Plants such as the Chinese Evergreen and the Peace Lily are experts at this. Plants with patterned leaves, like Violets, are also very good at trapping allergens. This article will explore the different benefits that plants can bring into our lives and different ways to utilize them.  Continue reading →

  4. It's Time for Businesses to Get Serious About EV Chargers

    With many markets on the brink of mass adoption of electric vehicles, having an EV charger on site will soon be a requirement to remain competitive. We are now living in the electric vehicle (EV) revolution! Looking at sources such as It May Be Difficult to Avoid Driving an Electric Car in 2022, it’s clear that due to the boom of EV’s in 2021, it is time for all businesses to consider installing EV charging infrastructure for customers.

  6. We Interview the Owner of Fresh Restorations, Maker of Custom Reclaimed Table Tops

    We always love to see the creative ways that customers use our table bases. Recently, we sat down (virtually) with Audrey Jones about her small business “Fresh Restorations” located in Somerville, New Jersey. Fresh Restorations is a reclaimed wood furniture business that takes salvaged barn wood (usually sourced from large sawmills) and turns it into beautiful custom tables. Audrey uses a sustainable process to transform tired pieces into beautiful reclaimed wood tables, desks, bars, and bar stools. Audrey started the business in 2015 when she moved with her husband into her family farmhouse in rural New Jersey. Being a decorative painter and artist for over 20 years, Audrey has a touch for creating beautiful pieces of art. The inspiration for Fresh Restorations started when Audrey created a wood kitchen island for her family’s farm house using reclaimed barn wood. Salvaging things in the countryside was something she noticed that did not take place as much in the city. People loved recycling, and creating things out of recycled materials. Continue reading →
  7. Is Manufacturing Coming Back to the United States?

    The Covid-19 epidemic has drastically changed the way we live by accelerating the trend towards e-commerce and delivery instead of in-store sales. When it comes to manufacturing, the current global business model requires that many of the physical goods we want to purchase are dependent on overseas manufacturers, either for parts or the actual finished goods. As a result, businesses and consumers are struggling with delayed freight times and the rising cost of freight. The level of consumer demands is driving a surge of overwhelmed ports, and companies are facing difficulties shipping and delivering products to consumers in a timely manner. The omicron variant is only adding to the issue, with record numbers of people out sick, stressing industries even further. The United States relies heavily on foreign producers when it comes to manufacturing, and Asian manufacturing companies control a majority of the United States shipping routes.  Continue reading →
