|We're sending this month's newsletter a few days early because we have some big news to share with you. Not big in the universal sense, but if you had been present at TheGreenOffice.com Global HQ last Friday at 7:04pm, you would have seen a group of Green Officers so boundlessly happy that you could be excused for thinking something truly and globally wonderful had just happened.
We no longer have a sluggish website.
For the past few weeks, site speed has been something of an elephant in the room for us. Sometimes it just sat there; sometimes it got between a customer and the web page she wanted to look at. As more and more people started visiting our site, the elephant became increasingly belligerent, stepping on customers' toes, biting administrators' wrists. By mid-July, it was out of control.
We have since subdued the elephant.
The story of how we did this is as long and heartbreaking as it is dull, but suffice it to say it's fixed, and we're more than a little embarassed that it took us this long to figure out how. We hope you'll accept our sincerest apologies, as well as our most heartfelt thanks for continuing to shop with us during these weeks of exceptionally slow navigation.
To that end, we'd like to give you a coupon code (104SPEED) good for 10% off your next order. It's been inspiring to see how many people share our vision of a truly sustainable workplace, and we want to make sure we're doing everything we can to make office greening quick, easy, and cost-effective at every step of the way.
Thank you again for your patience!
