This week’s announcement from the Creative One Launch Pad: A shiny new website (and accompanying full-color brochure in the works) for our client MMC Land Management!

We really enjoy working with the team at MMC. They’re a great group of people and they prove every day that family members can and do work together with great success. In fact, the name MMC is derived from the first initials of the three sons of owner Harry Platt, who started in the landscaping industry in 1982, along with his wife Roseann Platt and father-in-law John Frasca.

The oldest twin sons are Michael and Mark (that’s the MM) and Harry’s youngest son is Christopher (that’s the C). Michael, Mark and Christopher manage the direction of growth and the overall company, with Mark overseeing sales and account management and Michael and Christopher directing the operations.

MMC has grown to more than 80 employees who work out of three locations. They offer landscape maintenance, landscape installation, snow removal, compost filter sock manufacturing, erosion control and homebuilder services–all with a personal touch and attention to detail that is rare these days. You will truly find that no one cares for your property like they do.

Creative One took part in the Parliament of the World’s Religions in  Salt Like City, Utah this past week. What an incredible experience! More than 10,000 people from 80 countries and 50 religious/spiritual traditions will come together to share, learn, dialogue and express ideas and visions for a just, peaceful and sustainable future. ‪

We were brought to tears by the impassioned presentations of speakers from all over the world who talked about issues facing our planet, including climate change, income inequality, women’s rights, indigenous solidarity, youth empowerment, peace over violence and more. Some of the presenters included Dr. Jane Goodall, Dr. Karen Armstrong, Chief Lookinghorse of the Sioux Nation, Dr. Vendana Shiva, Rev. Michael Bernard Beckwith, Indigenous Grandmother Rose Pere of New Zealand, Dr. Eboo Patel, and Marianne Williamson.

We met up with colleagues and dear friends, as well as forged many new connections with like-minded others who define our sweet-spot target market: conscious citizens engaged in subtle activism to make this one and only planet we share a more peaceful, habitable and beautiful place for all.

Creative One also took part in a documentary that is being produced about the Parliament. Once we have a clip t0 share, we will post it here on our Launch Pad!

In this photo, we are enjoying being part of a communal lunch hosted by members of the Sikh religion. A humbling and beautiful experience.

We have been studying, researching and choosing to live the gluten-free lifestyle for a number of years now. So when nationally recognized gluten-free nutrition expert Amy Macklin approached us about writing a book for parents raising gluten-free children, we were thrilled.

Just launched! Growing Up Gluten-Free: A Lifestyle Guide for Raising Your Gluten-Free Child is more than just information on what you most need to know as a parent of a child with gluten sensitivity, intolerance or celiac. It’s the wisdom of another parent who has walked in your shoes.

At Creative One, we care deeply about our Mother Earth and are against GMOs, which is a huge part of why today’s wheat isn’t your grandmother’s wheat. For health reasons and for the health of the planet, we choose to eat, as much as possible, foods that are organic, unprocessed and pure. While we are not vegetarians per se, we are strongly against factory farms. But that’s another topic for another day. smile

At Creative One, we are determined to help create positive and lasting social change in the world.

This week and next, we will be traveling to Salt Like City, Utah to participate in the Parliament of the World’s Religions. More than 10,000 people from 80 countries and 50 religious/spiritual traditions will come together to share, learn, dialogue and express ideas and visions for a just, peaceful and sustainable future. ‪

Climate change, income inequality, women’s rights, indigenous solidarity, youth empowerment, peace over violence… these are just a handful of the important topics to be discussed at this year’s Parliament. Presenters include Dr. Jane Goodall, Marianne Williamson and Grandmother Flordemayo, with a special message from HH The Dalai Lama.

We will be meeting up with colleagues and dear friends, as well as forging new connections with like-minded others who define our sweet-spot target market: conscious citizens engaged in subtle activism to make this one and only planet we share a more peaceful, habitable and beautiful place for all.
