Meet a Green Alliance Business: Two Ceres Street

By Madalyn | Dec 2, 2014 | in

Who: Two Ceres Street

What: Two Ceres Street owners Marlisa Geroulo and John Golumb, use their business as an extension of their own sustainable lifestyle. The martini bar and restaurant was originally created via an extensive renovation, which incorporated as many eco-friendly and sustainable options as possible. Kieri board, a material made from wound discarded sorghum straw, was used for the paneling of the bar. Tabletops and shelving were made from PaperStone, a composite material created from 100 percent recycled paper and resin. Geroulo and Golumb also added LED lighting throughout the restaurant, Energy Star appliances and reclaimed materials, like Forest Stewardship Council certified tree stumps for seating and a fireplace made of scrap wood from Moran towing, the neighboring tugboat company. Two Ceres' floor is made from recycled plastic milk bottles and the restaurant has an extensive composting program for food waste. Adjacent to Two Ceres, and also owned by Geroulo and Golumb, is Poco's Bow Street Cantina, with its popular decks now with natural gas fueled outdoor heaters for chilly nights overlooking the river. Both restaurants boast many local and natural ingredients.

Portsmouth Atlantic Insurance Offers Special UNH Graduate Discount

By Katelyn | Dec 2, 2014 | in

After commencement ceremonies in May, herds of recent graduates flock to Boston for career opportunities, night-life, and the big-city feel close to home (or school). The majority of UNH students are originally from New Hampshire or Massachusetts and hope to stay in the area after they are finished with school. For this reason, Boston is one of the top post-graduation destinations for UNH alumni to start the rest of their lives. 

Another thing that bodes well for Boston, and draws recent graduates to the city, is the ease of transportation thanks to the MBTA. While you can "pahk you cah in Havahd yahd", you can just as easily catch the "T" and have access to all of Boston, or take the commuter rail to Worcester, Haverhill, Rhode Island, and more. 

Portsmouth Atlantic Insurance has come to the same realization and agrees that if Boston residents are driving their cars less than non-city residents they should not have to face the same insurance rates. The company has recently been working with University of New Hampshire graduates who have moved to Boston and is able to offer the alumni a Public Transit Discount. Although they are now living in Boston, Portsmouth Atlantic Insurance works with the new residents and is able to save customers about $300 a year on their auto insurance. Through the Public Transit Discount, Portsmouth Atlantic Insurance brings their customers hefty savings for relying on public transportation as opposed to individual automobile use.
