Good Choice...The Right Choice...Organic Choice

When Blake Rankin needed another machine that bags tea for his growing West Seattle business, he saw two possibilities: Spend $250,000 on a used machine that staples the bags or shell out four times that amount for a new model that ties knots in them.

Rankin decided it was worth $1 million to keep those little staples out of landfills.

"It's not about the money," he said. "It's about my legacy in the natural-foods industry." - Seattle Times
