Woodstock Welcomes You! Buttercup's Closet

Woodstock Welcomes You!  Buttercup's Closet

 

“Woodstock Welcomes You!” is a weekly article from 11Alive.com about a local business getting involved in the community. This week, we’re interviewing Tammy Willis, owner of Buttercup’s Closet (http://buttercupscloset.com/)  located near the Bridge Mill Community. Buttercup’s Closet is a children’s boutique with new and re-sale children’s and maternity clothing.

Tammy, a home spun Georgia girl from Calhoun, obviously has a knack for this business.

 “I saw a need for an outlet that provided quality children’s clothing in our area, especially since The Funky Monkey closed.” Tammy told us. Buttercup’s Closet isn’t a large chain, just a simple little business trying to fit into the community.”

Last week, we spoke with Russ Seifert with Creative Solar USA about their new business in Woodstock. One of Creative Solar USA projects was the on-going construction of the solar parking canopy at Kirk-Rudy, so it only made sense to follow up with Kirk-Rudy on the solar parking canopy and how their business impacts Woodstock.

This week, we met with Rick Marshall, president of Kirk-Rudy, Inc. Rick starts off with a little background about Kirk-Rudy, ” The company was originally founded outside of Chicago in 1967 by Harry Kirk, who had the inclination to move to Georgia and moved his family to Kennesaw in 1971, where they built their first large facility. ”

Woodstock Welcomes You! is a weekly article from 11alive.com featuring a recently registered business in Woodstock and this week we’re speaking with Russ Seifert, owner of Creative Solar USA. As the name suggests, they provide creative solutions for renewable energy needs. Russ’s background includes 16 years with Mercedes Benz  RBM of Atlanta.

“I realized the need for a local company to be able to provide renewable energy products for the home and business, especially when the 2008 Tax Credits went into effect,” Russ said.  He went on to mention that since then,  prices for solar energy products are becoming increasingly affordable and the average homeowner has affordable options available.

DASANI Celebrated its New PlantBottle® Packaging by Giving Back to Local Eco-Samaritans

The first 100 percent recyclable beverage packages made with plants were made readily available on April 4, 2011 to people across the U.S. To recognize the little things people do to live more sustainably, a DASANI Blue Crew attended two big events in Atlanta on April 16 and April 17 and thanked residents for partaking in eco-friendly activities. The local effort helped to celebrate the national launch of DASANI PlantBottle® packaging – a 100 percent recyclable bottle made of up to 30 percent plants.

More than 1,000 Atlanta residents were “caught,” by the DASANI Blue Crew, being environmental do-gooders.
