Okay, so we may not be as sophisticated as Google with a website dedicated to hiring prospective interns who work 18-hour days in sunny Silicon Valley, but we have needs, too. In fact, we have a lot of awesome ideas and projects that sit on our white board waiting for one of us to ‘clear our plate’ so we can tackle them and save the world….from plastic. In reality, that list would still be there - in a cruel cycle of getting erased and re-written - without the hustle and smarts of our summer interns, Ben and Rachel.

How did we ever get by without them? They’ve won us over with their enthusiasm and willingness to take on new and sometimes uncomfortable tasks. They have lightened our load (cheerfully) and shockingly come back for more. Consequently - no surprise here - our ‘idea’ list is shrinking. What can we say….they’re keepers.

Curious to learn more about them? We teased out a few little quirky things you might not otherwise know if you popped by the office or spoke with them on the phone.
