It's blast from the past time! While revising my resume for summer internship applications (fun stuff...), I ran into an article I wrote for IzzitGreen that, well, never actually made it on to IzzitGreen.
"Going green in a grey industry with Pixxlz.com and Grover Daniels"
It's a profile of Grover Daniels, CEO of Pixxlz.com, a "green printing company." At the time I wrote the article, Pixxlz.com was advertising on IzzitGreen -- hence the conflict of interests and the reason it never went up on the site.
It did, however, make it onto the Pixxlz.com blog!
You’ve got 5 seconds to name a "green" business. Did you name solar power company? An organic dairy? Chances are you didn’t name a printing company.
Grover Daniels, founder and CEO of eco-friendly printed products company Pixxlz.com, acknowledges that printing isn’t conventionally thought of as green industry. "The printing business is a difficult business to keep environmentally friendly. You would never create this business as a green business."
But that’s just what Daniels did.

It's kind of fun to go back and look at it. Unlike most of the other articles I wrote for IzzitGreen, this one actually kinda sorta has a lede, nut graf, and kicker -- before I even really knew what those things were!
