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.
Common Ground Magazine
Common Ground magazine helped pioneer the eco, health, wellness movement in Northern California. A respected and credible institution in the Bay Area, the magazine is published 10 times per year (over 500,000 print copies annually) on beautiful 4-color recycled paper and perfect binding. We also offer an online version at CommonGroundMag.com. Beginning February 14, 2011, Common Ground joined Facebook. Recent events, have proven the positive impact of social media. Inspired, we foray now to open our readership beyond our cherished Bay Area confines. We aim to promote healthy positive change, both around the block, and around the world. We welcome attracting new inspired audiences.
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.
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.”
