RADIUS Martha Stewart American Made Awards

Exciting news for RADIUS this month — we’re proud to have been named a 2015 Style/Beauty Finalist in the Martha Stewart American Made Awards.

Every year the awards celebrate homegrown makers in the crafts, design, food, and style industries. The aim is to support small businesses within our communities, and highlight the tenacious creativity of entrepreneurs across the country.

Martha and her discerning team will be judging the nominees on innovation and originality, workmanship, visual appeal and embodiment of the American Made theme — all of which are very much central to the RADIUS product and process. Should we win, Team RADIUS will be headed to New York City to attend the American Made event at the Martha Stewart Living headquarters. We’ll also receive $10,000 to grow the company and a chance to be featured in the American Made Market — the online store for handcrafted, artisanal products made right here in the USA.

Think RADIUS is a worthy winner? Visit Martha Stewart American Made Awards and vote for us in the Style/Beauty category.

summer

RADIUS wants to make sure that our entire Team stays healthy and happy this summer (and the rest of the year, too) so we’re providing some pretty awesome healthy perks for the summer!

Everyone looks forward to Thursdays 

Every Thursday RADIUS provides a nutritious (and delicious) salad for our entire Team. Our salads are provided by local restaurant/caterer Wholesome Foods who features locally grown produce and organic menu items. Each week they provide us with a different salad ranging from their Caesar Salad to their super popular Southwest Salad! Our Marketing person, Amanda, also sends a Healthy Thursday email to everyone with eating tips, exercises, and recipes!

Good Nutrition is Our Mission

Starting in June, we will have a Nutritionist come to RADIUS for a presentation/Q & A session about various topics including general nutrition, physical activity, weight management, and stress management. Everyone will have the opportunity to ask the Nutritionist specific questions and get hands on knowledge regarding their health. Our presentations will fall on one Thursday a month so everyone can enjoy their healthy salad while listening and speaking with the Nutritionist.

In It to Win It

Since we’re all going to be enjoying healthy salads and learning from a nutritionist, we decided to put everyone to the test and reward them for eating healthy in and outside of RADIUS! We launched our Healthy Summer Eating Contest at the beginning of May and it will continue throughout the entire summer. Whenever a RADIUS Team Member eats a healthy meal, they can snap a photo and send it to Amanda. Amanda will keep track of  each healthy meal throughout the month and the person who ate the healthiest at the end of that month will win a prize! They can choose between various prizes including a Lifefactory Glass Water Bottle, a Beginner’s Yoga Kit, an Oster My Blend Blender, and much more! At the end of August, the person who ate the healthiest all summer will receive a Fitbit Activity Tracker!

Our 2 Finalists and winner were chosen today…

Since RADIUS got it’s start in New York City, our Inside Sales Manager, Chrissy decided to add a little RADIUS to the Statue of Liberty…

Kelly, our Administrative Assistant, put her baking skills to the test with this delicious RADIUS themed brownie. She also said her tribute is a “zero waste” product since everyone ate it and there wasn’t any left :-)…

No, Seriously…We’re Happy Just to be Nominated

Have you ever watched the Oscars, Grammys, or any other award show and thought, “Yea right, I’m sure they’re just happy to be nominated. I don’t believe that for a second?” Well, we’re hear to tell you that being happy just to be nominated can actually happen.

RADIUS was nominated for the Martha Stewart American Made Award (which was super awesome in and of itself) and then imagine our excitement when we come to find out that out of hundreds of entries in our Style category we were a chosen finalist!

We work really hard to make our company and the products that we produce the best that they can be and to have that recognized in such a big way was a huge honor.

The winners were chosen on Friday October 17th and, sadly, RADIUS did not win. Are we a little disappointed? Of course, but we knew the competition was steep and all the companies who did win were well-deserving and we couldn’t be more excited for them. As cliché as it sounds, we were really  honored to be included in such an exclusive group of companies and we congratulate each and every one of them.

Now, with only a few more months left in 2014, we’re looking forward to 2015 and all the the things that it can bring. If we’re nominated again next year hopefully we’ll win, but if not, make no mistake… we’ll still be happy just to be nominated.

To each and every person who voted for us, we thank you so much for your support! We’ll see you again next year.

Glee Gum Makes RADIUS Positively Gleeful!

In RADIUS, RADIUS Reviews It! on June 23, 2014 at 3:50 pm

It’s no surprise that here at RADIUS we’re all about teeth. Our teeth and overall oral health are pretty important to us. Which is why when we’re sitting in our beautiful HQ in Kuztown, PA dreaming up more ways to bring environmentally friendly oral care to the masses, we chew Glee Gum. We’ve always been big fans of Glee Gum, not only because they have an amazing product that is all natural and tastes pretty amazing, but also because we prefer to support like-minded companies. RADIUS and Glee Gum are both dedicated to providing quality products that are environmentally and socially responsible. So when the opportunity was presented for us to partner with Glee Gum and host a Facebook contest where one lucky participant will win a one year supply of RADIUS Floss Sachets & Sugar-Free Glee Gum, we jumped at the chance.

 The folks at Glee Gum were also nice enough to send everyone at RADIUS an assortment of their Sugar-Free Gum and we thought that this would be the perfect opportunity to let everyone know WHY we love Glee!

Our Inside Sales Team couldn’t wait to try the New Wild Watermelon flavor that Glee Gum now offers.

“I love all of the flavors, but my absolute favorite is the Wild Watermelon!” exclaims Chrissy, our Inside Sales Manager.

“My two favorites were the Mint and the Watermelon, but if I had to choose, I would have to say Wild Watermelon is my favorite.” agrees Jen, an Inside Sales Rep. “I also  love the mini Glee Gum boxes! They’re perfect for putting in your purse!”

“I really like how Glee Gum is aspartame, saccharin, cyclamate free.” Donna, an Inside Sales Rep explains. “I brought a few packs of Glee Gum home to my family and my children went crazy! They tried each flavor, loved them all, and have been chewing Glee Gum ever since!”

 

 

image (3)“I just really love this gum!” Lucinda our Product Manager was eager to tell us. “The first thing I noticed is that each flavor smells amazing when you open the package, so you automatically know it’s going to taste great too. I honestly can’t pick one flavor I like the best because I like them all, but I really enjoyed the Lemon Lime. I also really appreciate the fact that Glee Gum is made without any harmful additives and is made in the USA.”

Our Shipping & Production Assistant is a huge fan of the Wild Watermelon, but it’s the packaging that had her family really excited. “I took some Glee Gum home for my family to try and my mom fell in love with the packaging. She loves Glee Guy! Once they got over how awesome the packaging was, they decided they really like the Mint the best!”

Our entire Production Team (total of 15) were super excited to try out Glee Gum and kept a stash in the RADIUS break room to chew when not on the floor assembling all of our toothbrushes. Everyone had their favorite flavor, but, after a quick poll, the most popular was the Wild Watermelon!

“It’s a box of Glee!” our Social Marketing & PR person Amanda announced when the shipment of Glee Gum arrived at RADIUS. “I’m a huge fan of Glee Gum and was a Mint user for quite some time, but after trying the new Wild Watermelon flavor I think I’ve found a new favorite! I’ve always really appreciated that this gum is non-GMO, vegetarian, and does not contain artificial sweeteners like aspartame, but I also love how Glee Gum is environmentally responsible. They use chicle in their gum base which helps support the rainforest and I absolutely love their Tree to Glee program where Glee will plant a tree in Central America for every documented box of gum that is purchased. We try to do as much as we can as a company to make our products and manufacturing process environmentally friendly, so it’s really great to partner with a company that has the same goals.”

Saskia our fearless leader and CEO couldn’t decide which flavor she liked best. “I love the flavors! They’re so good that I wish the flavor would last forever!” Since Saskia is heavily involved in the RADIUS product design process she really appreciates companies that go the extra mile to make quality, socially, and environmentally responsible products. “Glee Gum and RADIUS have quite a few things in common. Our Vegan Mint and Cranberry Flosses contain gum-benefiting, USA-Sourced Xylitol just like their Sugar-Free Gum. It also really impresses me that Glee Gum is the first Fair Trade gum in the world and that they manufacture in the USA. We manufacture our products in the US and it’s wonderful to see other companies succeed that have the ambition.”

Review in Review: 

Simply put, RADIUS loves Glee Gum! But, by an overwhelming majority, our favorite flavor is Wild Watermelon!
