My Green Job: Chad Sanders, solar installer

April 14th, 2009

Chad W. Sanders, 34, Lakewood, Colorado

What I do:

I work for Metro Solar, a solar thermal and photovoltaic installation and service company. We specialize in solar thermal heating and high efficiency boiler systems, but also install PV (photovoltaics). Since we are one of the few companies that service old systems, the majority of the work I do is in this area. There were many solar thermal systems installed in the Denver area back in the ‘80s and Metro Solar has stayed in business maintaining these systems during the last three decades. Now that there is a renewed interested in solar we are starting to install new systems.

My Green Job: Mark Crames, CEO Demeter Fragrance

April 8th, 2009

Mark Crames, 53, Great Neck NY

What I do:

I develop new concepts and fragrance for Demeter Fragrance Library

How it helps:

We make natural fragrances available at an affordable price

How I got here:

It was not a straight line; I am a lawyer by training and was an Assistant State Attorney in another life, working under Janet Reno in Miami, Florida. In 1986 I started a company that specialized in designer fragrance distribution. That company eventually became the licensee and manufacturer of some well known fragrances, like Pierre Cardin and Faberge. In 2002, after that business became larger than what I considered optimal, I sold my interest and bought Demeter with my wife and partner, Debra; and we have been redefining and growing it ever since

Where I’m going:

We’re making Classic Demeter scents, which are 95% natural ingredients, available to broader distribution, to make more scent accessible to more people, for everyday enjoyment. Scent is joyous, and our mission is to make it accessible and affordable, to use every day, everywhere

In more expensive, but still affordable distribution, we are launching Vintage Naturals, 100% natural fragrances, to make completely natural scents affordable. There are very few natural scents for less than $150 on the market. Vintage Naturals are $68.00

My Green Job: Susan Casias, manager of shredding

April 6th, 2009

Susan Casias, 47, Houston, Texas

Area Shred Manager for Houston’s Greenstar Security Destruction

What I do: I oversee the shredding operations for Greenstar Security Destruction, a division of Greenstar Recycling, North America.

How it helps:

Greenstar is a recycling plant. I handle sales and operations for the document destruction (shredding) division which is AAA certified by the National Association for Information Destruction to destroy hard drives and paper. Our certification requires us to recycle the shredded paper through mills that use a bleaching and hydro-pulping process. So, basically, we prevent crime and save the planet. (I tell my employees they’re superheroes.)

How I got here:

I’ve been in sales since I’m 17 years old. I’ve been in sales management for the last 20 years. I stumbled upon this opportunity when I was laid off from my previous job about 2 years ago. I originally applied for the Recycle Sales position. When the General Manager saw my resume and I told him how I was a victim of identity theft, we both agreed that the shredding division is where I belong.
