Each year for the past twelve years Utah Business Magazine has spotlighted forty of the most promising young professionals under 40 years of age. The Forty Under 40 awards are designed to recognize Utah’s best, brightest, and most promising talent. The award highlights up-and-coming leaders and entrepreneurs who have created a ground-breaking technology or an executive who has uniquely brought something more to their position.

“I’m honored to be recognized for this award,” said Slagle. “I’m passionate about working hard to accomplish goals and am grateful to work for a company who cares so much for its employees.”

Our Chinese New Year Celebration
Occasionally our family likes to take a time out from our usual dinner routine and enjoy something unique from a culture different than ours. Last week, since Chinese New Year was in full swing, we thought it would be a great opportunity to enjoy a part of the rich Chinese culture. Oftentimes we celebrate with extended family or a couple of families in our neighborhood but this year we decided to try something a little more trouble-free and just celebrated with our little family.

I'm excited to share with you that because of the success of our composters, we have developed a new version based on feedback from ourcustomers! As you may know, a k...
