Stuff That Works: Mowhawk Home Recycled Doormat

Image
How cool is this? While out buying some LED lights for the store, I came upon this new doormat from Mowhawk Greenworks in Sugar Valley, GA.
Several things attracted my attention and pushed me to a purchase. First, it is a nice looking mat. Secondly - it is made of recycled car tires. On top of those most important things - it is MADE IN THE USA! Whoo-hooo, sign me up.
At this point it has been down for a total of 10 hours, so I cannot speak to the durability issue. That being said, I do not anticipate any problems in that regard. The mat is very heavy and appears to be well made. The weight will come in handy in front of our store because the wind just whips down Main Street in Lowell.

First some Republicans - you know, the party that is trimming our budget, cutting waste, etc.:

"Richard Bandstra, who was on the state Court of Appeals for 16 years and served in the state House for more than a decade, gets pensions totaling $117,920 through the Michigan Legislative Retirement System and the state Judicial Retirement System.

Bandstra left the court Jan. 8 with four years remaining on his latest six-year term and now works as chief legal counsel for state Attorney General Bill Schuette with an annual salary of $140,000."

"A number of pensioners also have top state jobs. Posthumus earns $170,000 as Snyder's senior adviser while drawing $92,489.52 from …
