About

I was a bartender/server at an outside tiki bar on the harbor in sunny Key West, Fl.  We served alot of oysters. The oysters always had a side tray of saltine crackers with them. As I watched the customers enjoying the oysters, the customers would not have any ways to make sure the cracker wrappers would not blow away. I came up with this simple but very effective solution. The wrappers would  get swept away by the breeze everyday into the ocean. I also found the wrappers from sweeteners for ice tea and coffee did the same. Not as bad as the plastic wrappers but still pollution. I looked around this tiny island and found many other bars and restaurants have the same problem.  I saw a problem and set out to fix it. Living aboard my small sailboat, I made a pact with Mother Ocean...I would do what I could to help protect her if she would keep me safe.  So far, knock on wood, it's working. 

 This is a simple and creative solution to the problem for anything that has a small wrapper.  Make a serving tray with a wrapper trash bin.  All of the trays are  hand crafted from a variety of hardwoods that will compliment any table.  Our trays come in two sizes - 7x3 and 10x3 inches.-Available in a variety of hardwoods  Great conversation pieces your friends or customers  are sure to enjoy!  All trays are clear coated for lasting protection from the elements.  I have had a number of request for custom made boxes: small product display boxes, pencil boxes, and boxes for anything.

If you are reading this and share my concern, I thank you and ask for help to make it happen. Every wrapper that does not go into our waters is a step in the right direction.
 

Risks and challenges

My biggest concerns are:
1. I am a one man shop at this point. I purchase, pick up and deliver, mill and cut all the pieces, assemble, sand and paint each box. Then I go out to sell them. I need to hire help.
2. I need a few more machines, not to expensive, to make manufacturing quicker and easier.
3. Cost of keeping enough product flowing and time to do it all.
4. I expect this to catch on fairly quickly from feed back my customers and people that have been to my web site and face book page. Good response. Time for it all is a major issue.
