LunarGlo Lights Make the Apple Festival an After Dark Stand Out

Event organizers credit LunarGlo solar powered lights in their portable restrooms as making the Apple Festival cleaner, brighter and more enjoyable for all

“Once people experience what a big difference our solar powered porta-john lights make, they never want to go back to the “dark ages”.”

— Judy Barton

ELKHART, IN, UNITED STATES, June 25, 2019 / — With the festival and outdoor event season now in full swing, LunarGlo solar powered lights are helping make these venues brighter, cleaner and safer around the world. LunarGlo president Judy Barton said, “Once people experience what a big difference our solar powered porta-john lights make, they never want to go back to the “dark ages”.

Illustrating this difference from an event organizer’s perspective, Jeff Kitson, Executive Director of the Nappanee Area Chamber of Commerce said, “The Nappanee Apple Festival has had LunarGlo solar powered lights in our portable restrooms for several years now. It makes our event stand out by how clean and bright our portable restrooms are after dark. We have limited access to public restrooms and with over 100,000 visitors to our festival, the lights make the evening more enjoyable for all. I would highly recommend installing LunarGlo solar lights where ever you need light. They are amazing, durable and bright.” The preferred portable restroom supplier for the Nappanee Apple Festival is J&K Septic in New Paris, Indiana.

Rex Barton, LunarGlo’s co-founder added, “We know safety is another important consideration in an event organizer’s decision to require reliable, automatic solar lighting products in their porta-johns and wash stations. Their attendees don’t consider this kind of lighting to be a luxury; it’s a necessity.”

Robert Thomson offers insight into highly successful real estate career

Rob Thomson

Rob Thomson

Real estate mogul Robert Thomson of Waterfront Properties provides a closer look at the business and his highly successful, decades-long career.

JUPITER, FLORIDA, USA, June 24, 2019 / — Owner of Waterfront Properties and Club Communities, marketed as the largest purveyor of luxury real estate in Palm Beach and Martin County, Robert 'Rob' Thomson is a true veteran of the South Florida property market, first entering the industry more than 30 years ago. A South Florida native, Jupiter resident Thomson offers a closer look behind the scenes at Waterfront Properties and shares further insight into his highly successful career.

At the helm of Waterfront Properties and Club Communities, Robert 'Rob' Thomson directs more than 100 real estate agents and considers himself something of a visionary within the industry. "If you continue to do what you've always done, you'll only end up where you are," he suggests. "My goal, therefore," Thomson continues, "is to constantly evolve, and to be in line with any changes which are coming."

"You have to be passionate about it, and not just trying to make an effort," adds the real estate mogul, today responsible for in excess of $2 billion in lifetime sales.

Success, however, he says, did not come overnight. "There's been no shortage of hard work and dedication," Thomson explains. "It's something of an education, and one which started when I was a boy, with my mother being one of the first realtors in the Jupiter area, primarily focused on the Jupiter Island market," he goes on to reveal.

In 1987, Thomson's mother, Joan, would change the name of her existing real estate business to Waterfront Properties, the company which today has evolved into Waterfront Properties and Club Communities, and of which Rob Thomson himself is now at the helm.

Asked what sets Waterfront Properties and Club Communities apart from the competition, Thomson quickly points toward the cutting-edge technology and unique online marketing model which the business employs. Thomson and Waterfront Properties and Club Communities have also agreed on exclusive affiliations with prestigious international real estate networks, such as Mayfair International Realty, based in the heart of London, England.

"Our commitment to cutting-edge technology, our unique internet model, and our global affiliations have, together," Thomson suggests, "allowed Waterfront Properties to truly dominate the Palm Beach County and Treasure Coast luxury property markets."

Branding is also incredibly important at Waterfront Properties and Club Communities, he says. "Much of our success also relies on having established ourselves as a brand in the South Florida luxury real estate market," explains Thomson.

Indeed, Thomson's visionary approach to business, technology, and branding have all seen Waterfront Properties win multiple, highly celebrated awards. "Such awards stand as a testament to what we do," he suggests, "and demonstrate why we remain unmatched by anyone else in our market."

Turning back to what he calls his learning experience, Thomson reveals that it's often this, however, above all else, which keeps him ahead of the curve. "There's no end to the learning experience, and the most important thing, for me," he adds, wrapping up, "is to remember to keep on learning."

Robert Thomson is a luxury real estate professional based in Jupiter, Florida. Robert 'Rob' Thomson is a managing partner and owner of Waterfront Properties and Club Communities. Rob Thomson is also the name behind Waterfront Yacht Brokerage, giving Waterfront Properties and Club Communities' clients the option to buy and sell luxury watercraft alongside homes and other properties, and is co-owner of the Jupiter-based restaurant Shipwreck Bar and Grille. Thomson himself also happily resides in Jupiter and is the proud father of six children, two of whom currently work alongside him at Waterfront Properties.

Michael Ingui of Baxt Ingui Architects

Passive House Brownstone

Passive House Kitchen

Passive House Staircase

Baxt Ingui Architects Partner Michael Ingui's Bold New Mission

It’s wild to think you could help save the environment while having a better home. Passive House Accelerator hopes to amplify widely just how revolutionary Passive House can be.”

— Michael Ingui, Partner, Baxt Ingui Architects

NEW YORK, NY, USA, June 24, 2019 / — CNN recently published an article on their site (“Making an old home healthier for you and the environment,” June 18, 2019) that discusses how some architectural firms are using innovative techniques and design, such as Passive House building standards, on buildings new and old to make them more energy efficient. A home that is built to the Passive House standard is incredibly well sealed from bugs, dust, pollen, and drafts. A Passive House is also well insulated, creating a comfortable and serene environment that can reduce homeowners’ cooling and heating needs by between 80 percent and 90 percent. Many of the homes in the New York City area that are built to the Passive House standard only used their heat a few days this past winter.

Though Passive House was developed in Germany during the 1990s and has become popular in Central Europe, it is still relatively new to the United States. CNN reports that only 1,161 homes in the US were Passive House certified or were in the process of being certified in 2018, but that the number of homes is growing quickly.

Michael Ingui hopes to accelerate that growth.

Ingui, a Partner at Baxt Ingui Architects, who was interviewed by CNN for the article, has established Passive House Accelerator, a website that makes it easier for designers, contractors, and homeowners to learn about the specifics of Passive House standards. Ingui, who is currently working on nine Passive House renovation projects in Brooklyn and Manhattan for his firm, has been a pioneer in utilizing Passive House building standards, and believes that the building standard will become more popular as word of its numerous benefits to owners and the environment spreads.

On top of making homes “greener,” there are also health and economic gains to be had, as the upgrades allow owners to reduce indoor allergens and the usage of their heating and cooling systems. He added that a Passive House retrofit can cut heating and cooling expenses by upwards of 80 percent.

“You gain a better house,” Ingui told CNN. “You gain a healthier house. You gain money in your pocket for not paying for heating. It’s a pretty wild approach to think that you could actually save the environment while having a better home.”

“The biggest thing people have to get used to is that they hardly have to heat their house,” he added.

With Passive House Accelerator, Ingui believes that he can bring together a collaborative network of Passive House enthusiasts who will not only speak of its virtues to a wider audience, but also support the growing Passive House community by sharing ideas and solutions.

“Our goal is to spread the message,” Ingui said. “That’s number one. It all comes down to information. When the information is out there and easy to find, more and more people will understand just how accessible, responsible and rewarding Passive House can be.

Once people learn about Passive House, they tend to ask 'Why isn't everyone building this way?' The answer is: once they know about it they will."
