The garment gurus at Clean Green Revolution spruce up sullied strands with an earth-friendly hydrocarbon-based solvent that freshens fabrics without staining the ozone, soil, or conscience. Banish dirt and fondue stains from an array of attire soiled from late-night laundry soirees, including blouses ($5.80–$8.50), shirts ($1.75), and suits ($15.50). Although soaking sooty clothing in inorganic fertilizers and drying them over the engines of gas guzzling tractors is a difficult habit to break, Clean Green Revolution makes switching to eco-friendly practices easy and convenient with a complimentary pick-up and delivery service available in select areas. This Mother Earth–pleasing business also uses a PERC-free process.

Mark Wagner has been working under the hood of international automobiles since 1972. After securing a master's degree in mechanical engineering in Germany, Wagner ferried both his family and his familiarity with foreign cars to America, where, today, he teams up with the ASE-certified techs in his repair shop. The factory-trained mechanics dole out everything from tune-ups to engine, brake, and transmission repairs. And all of their work is backed by a 15-month, 15,000-mile warranty that prevents cars from worrying about waking up and seeing their name in the classified pages.
Baseball players can't skimp on their hitting, pitching, and catching skills if they want to dominate the game—a fact that the instructors at Northshore Sports Complex know well. In 1982, Cody Webster earned the title of MVP while playing for the Kirkland Nationals All-Star Team—the first US team to win the Little League World Series. He continued to play throughout high school and college, and went on to coach for Pepsi Baseball. His cohort, Craig Bishop draws on 20 years of coaching experience at high schools and colleges. Together, the duo shares the task of teaching students the fundamentals of the game inside batting and pitching cages.
Surrounded by a chain-link fence and divided by safety nets, their astro-turfed cages shelter machines that launch baseballs and softballs straight down the plate. These projectiles can reach speeds up to 85mph, which would be really scary if the baseballs weren't tranquilized beforehand. Sans the machines, pairs can take to the cages to hone their pitching and catching abilities.
