I wanted to write and tell you about a new website for artists, musicians, fashion designers, and filmmakers: http://www.PutItOn.com. I’ve been using the site as an artist and have my work there, and am trying to support it because I believe in it. Basically, the site allows artists from all over the world to connect, display their portfolios, and sell their work (with NO commission taken!). The site gives artists a FREE gigabyte of space to showcase their portfolios, allows you to stream audio and video works, lets you create live personal broadcasts, and translates any writing into ten different languages. If you could take the time to visit the site, and if you like it too, let your readers know about it, and even sign up yourself or link to it on your site it would be greatly appreciated! We are trying to make a go of helping out artists everywhere and are trying to get the word out, so please help us out if you like the site after checking it out! Thank you!

FOH® Introduces Platewise™…A new TRUE GREEN Alternative
MIAMI, FL (November 2010): Front of the House® (FOH®) has developed a REVOLUTIONARY, NEW, stylish and TRUE GREEN alternative to traditional plastic and melamine dinnerware. Platewise™ has just been introduced to the national and international markets.
Made of natural bamboo – a highly renewable resource – and FREE of melamine, Platewise™ is a smart, non-toxic serving solution for all occasions. The dinnerware and serveware will stand up to rigorous commercial washings and easily decompose in a landfill. Platewise™ offers the perfect combination of style, function, and durability for a chef, as well as affordability and availability for a purchaser. For a guest, Platewise™ provides the reassurance of a beautiful and eco-friendly dining experience.
There is a strong emphasis on making wise choices and Platewise™ embodies all the characteristics that customers require. Style and durability are as important as Platewise™ being melamine-free, non-toxic and bio-degradable. It’s ideal for high volume, low-maintenance purchasers or for those who simply want to add a fresh, sophisticated yet natural element to plating. Dishwasher-safe is a phrase not associated with natural elements such as bamboo but Platewise™ defies traditional usability restrictions for bamboo. All products in the Platewise™ line have been tested — commercially washed thousands of times with no cracking or loss of lustre.
The Platewise™ collection is made of natural bamboo fiber…the rest is a secret recipe that we have been testing and perfecting for years. FOH® has been, and continues to be, committed to bringing to the Foodservice Industry, SAFE, stylish, GREEN, and budget-friendly serving solutions. No longer will controversial melamine be the only option for outdoor, casual, and institutional items.
Platewise™ is melamine-free, which means it is a safer, healthier choice than other products that contain the toxic ingredient. The FDA acknowledges that melamine can migrate into food from tableware under some circumstances. FOH® made the wise choice not to use melamine in any of its new, natural line, developing instead new technology that also improved durability. The technology used in the production of Platewise™ is exclusive to FOH®.
Platewise™…eco-chic, eco-nomical and eco-logical.
Front of the House® (FOH®) designs and manufactures unique tableware and serveware for the hospitality trade, transforming the ordinary into modern elegance. Exploring the intersection of color, green materials, unique textures and bold shapes with an array of sizes, the Front of the House® (FOH®) design team is continuously inventing new concepts for creative mixing and matching designed to stimulate the senses. All Front of the House® (FOH®) products reflect remarkable craftsmanship, environmental sensitivity, durability and value.
