BART
Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) connects the San Francisco Peninsula with Oakland, Berkeley, Fremont, Walnut Creek, Dublin/Pleasanton and other cities in the East Bay. For more than 35 years BART has provided fast, reliable transportation to downtown offices, shopping centers, tourist attractions, entertainment venues, universities and other destinations for Bay Area residents and visitors alike.
East Bay Express
The East Bay counties are very different from the rest of the San Francisco Bay Area, the East Bay Express is a very different paper. Every week, the Express provides the only medium dedicated exclusively to the East Bay. From our authoritative cover stories; to our in-depth local reporting, arts and dining coverage; to the area's most comprehensive weekly calendar; the East Bay Express has been this vibrant region's leading voice since 1978.
SF Weekly
SF Weekly is San Francisco's smartest publication. That's because we take journalism seriously, but not so seriously that we let ourselves be guided by an agenda. In fact, we cherish our political independence: The paper has repeatedly challenged massive public subsidies for private developments by leading San Francisco business interests--but it has also blamed liberal political advocates for fostering inhumane conditions at a city jail. Add to our array of public-interest stories a comprehensive entertainment guide--led by incisive, award-winning writing on the cultural scene--and you'll see why SF Weekly has acquired a loyal audience of active, urban professionals, an audience as diverse as the city we cover.
Comcast
Comcast was founded in 1963 as a single-system cable operation. Today, we’re the country’s largest provider of cable services—and one of the world’s leading communications companies. We’re focused on broadband cable, commerce, and content. We deliver digital services, provide faster Internet and clearer broadband phone service, and develop and deliver innovative programming.
Peet's Coffee & Tea
Peet's Coffee & Tea, founded in 1966 by Alfred Peet in Berkeley, California. Participating in local and global events is an important part of Peet's philosophy. Among their projects are the Kidani Mehret Self-Help Association KIMSSA School in Ethiopia, Las Hermanas, a co-operative of women in Nicaragua, The Butterfly School, in the Western Highlands of the island of Papua New Guinea, the Tanzania project, The Rwanda initiative. Both of the latter begins with the work of TechnoServe. Predicated on the idea that giving a hand up rather than a hand out creates self-sufficiency, TechnoServe teaches small-scale coffee farmers the business skills needed to add value and achieve better quality.
New Living Expo
The New Living Expo is the Bay Area’s signature healthy living event which promotes the creation of the next leading-edge community of our times. Born ten years ago during the aftermath of 9/11, San Francisco’s New Living Expo (formerly Whole Life Expo) has quickly become a world-class annual event, bringing together cutting-edge lecturers, thought-provoking speakers, 300 plus sustainable living products exhibitors, local and independent vendors and artisans, and small business owners with a shared focus on building global community…right here at home.
Teatulia Tea
Teatulia Tea comes direct to you from our single garden in Northern Bangladesh's Tetulia region.
We let Mother Nature encourage our teas and herbs while rejuvenating the land, resulting in a refreshingly clean flavor. Additionally, Teatulia is the only tea garden in Bangladesh to be USDA certified organic.
Our commitment to sustainability carries through to our packaging: compostable canisters, biodegradable silken pyramid tea bags, water based inks and labels made from recycled paper.

Green Mary
Event Green Waste Solutions and EcoDiversion: When asked about the future Mary dreams of the day that “greening services” become obsolete as changes on every level lead to naturally waste-free events. We’ll be bringing our own cups, our reusable water bottles, bottled water is a thing of the past, we’ve got real napkins and utensils; biodegradable wares will be made of locally grown bamboo, hemp, and birch, with greatly reduced reliance on fossil fuels for the process. “There is endless room for imagination and empowerment in living lighter every day,” says Green Mary, “That’s what I dream about and I dream in color.”
