This year the Zappos family is doing everything in its power to win 1st place in the Las Vegas Corporate Challenge, and is showing no signs of stepping down to anyone. It started with taking 1st place in the swim meet, and most recently taking 3rd place in the softball tournament. The Blogs team would like to congratulate the softball team, as well as the many other groups that have shown their team and family spirit in the 2010 Corporate Challenge games. Go Zappos Family!
The ZFC in KY hosted their All Hands Meeting at Paroquet Springs Conference Center on April 20th. The main topic of discussion was new legal entities that would affect our vendors, customers and of course our employees. Starting May 1st we will take the name of Zappos Kentucky Family. This entity will include all the departments housed in the Fulfillment Center. During the meeting Craig A. introduced our new Zappos Kentucky Family t-shirt launcher and an amazing Zappos Kentucky Family ice sculpture! Door prizes were given away to those Zappos employees that brought in donations for Dare to Care. All in all we had a great time together learning, laughing and giving back…All Hands rocked!
THE SURFRIDER is Globe’s Co-Op with the Surfrider Foundation. Thanks to the Surfrider Foundation, beaches across the planet have been saved, one at a time. In support of their tireless efforts to keep us all surfing in clean water, at beautiful beaches, on quality waves and without limit, Globe pledges to donate 50% of the profits of this sandal back to the Surfrider Foundation. Surfing is our privilege. Surfrider is preserving it, everyday. The Surfrider is Globe’s most eco-friendly sandal to date, using ‘Lite Leather’, water based PU cements, recycled PET thread, recycled EVA and recycled car tires into the material story. Do your part and enjoy a pair today.
This sandal features ‘Lite Leather’ which means the products have used lower emissions and less pollution during the manufacturing process through the reduction in power usage and the recycling of water and heat to achieve a much more globally sound approach to being environmentally conscious, beyond just using:
-Water Based PU Cements
-Recycled PET Toe Post
-Recycled PET Thread
-5% Recycled Car Tire Rubber Outsole
-Partially Recycled EVA and Cork Midsole
Donny was born in Los Angeles and began his career early in art, working at a screen printer. From there he worked as an art director and creative director at top action sports companies. His fine art has been shown internationally, while his first book, "Beautiful People with Beautiful Feelings", was released in 2006 to excellent reviews, and has garnered a cult following.
Donny considers himself an absurdist conceptual artist. Hit art focuses on bringing an intellectual element to a mostly otherwise vapid, primitive and repetitive era in art. Donny also studies Muay Thai kickboxing and appreciates a good beating (just a side note).
