You may, or may not have noticed, but quite a few of our Team Members hear about <strong>The Organic Box</strong> through their friend's and family's positive experiences with us. You know - that "heard about it from a friend of a friend" kind of thing. <strong>Trista </strong>joined our <strong>Production Team</strong> after running <span style="color: #222222;">into an acquaintance who knew one of the members of our Driving Team. She was informed of how much they loved working with us and it made her consider how important it is for her to work for a company whose ideals and values are in line with her own. She needs to know that the fruits of her labour (haha) are supporting something she believes in. As always - we're happy she found that with us!</span> <span style="text-decoration: underline;"><strong>Fun-facts about Trista:</strong></span> <p style="padding-left: 30px;">• she enjoys r<span style="color: #222222;">e-watching "cheesy old shows" like <em>Golden Girls</em>, and <em>Stargate</em> as well as movies like <em>V</em> (both the 1980's version and the newer 2009 remake) and of course, <em>Spaceballs! </em>She admits to being a bit of a sci-fi geek...</span></p> <p style="padding-left: 30px;">• Trista loves <span style="color: #222222;">natural health and people always come to her for suggestions for natural ways to tackle things that are bothering them... or just to borrow some <em>Oil of Oregano.</em> She's a Reiki practitioner and is mindful of her energy while packing boxes with wholesome foods</span></p> <p style="padding-left: 30px;">• in her free time, she likes to learn about whatever aspects of Quantum Physics and astronomy her brain is able to fathom and she keeps an eye on local and world politics</p> <p style="padding-left: 30px;">• at the moment her fav items in The Organic Box are the English peas - her most favourite thing ever since she can remember. Our Fairtrade fresh Turmeric - so amazingly flavourful that it has ruined turmeric powder for her. And Eden Organic's giant cans of garbanzo beans - she's a self-proclaimed hummus freak and highly recommends adding fresh Garlic Scapes to your hummus!</p> <p style="padding-left: 30px; text-align: left;">• visit her page for more information on her long-distance, pay-it-forward Reiki sessions: <a style="color: #1155cc;" href="" target="_blank"><wbr />it.Forward.Reiki</a></p> <p style="text-align: left;"><span style="text-decoration: underline;"><strong>Trista's favourite memory:</strong></span></p> <p style="text-align: left; padding-left: 30px;">'All the pun-slinging that goes on. I even put one in my cover letter when I applied. I'm pretty sure this is the sole reason I was hired. And... laughing until I cry on a regular basis. I fully appreciate all the amazing people I am fortunate enough to share my time with.'</p> [caption id="attachment_5559" align="aligncenter" width="680"]<a href=""><img class="wp-image-5559 size-large" src="/media/original_images/TMT_Trista1-1024x1024.jpg" alt="TMT_Trista1" width="680" height="680" /></a> Trista[/caption] Trista's one of many caring, conscientious Team Members we are so fortunate to have working with us. Plus - if it weren't for her - who would draw<span style="color: #222222;"> suns on people's labels sometimes at random, or little people in the number 8's?</span>
