From the beginning of next week's partial solar eclipse, through totality, until the last moment of partiality, a number of interesting phenomena will occur. The temperature will drop, the sunny sky will begin to turn twilight blue and quickly look as dark as a full moon-night before reverting back to daylight, insects will chirp and roosters will crow, the breeze will stop, the temperature will drop...and much more.

Today is a snowy day here at Cfx in St. Louis, so we thought we'd take a moment to snap a photo of our building getting covered in this beautiful Missouri snowfall. For a closer look behind-the-scenes, be sure to follow our Instagram account.
Our favorite part of the holidays wrapping up (other than puns) is the fresh start that the new year brings – not only in theory, but in people’s lifestyles and daily habits. Nearly everyone sets new year’s resolutions with the goal of giving their lives a facelift. Whether the objective is to eat better, exercise more, spend more time with loved ones, eliminate caffeine from one’s diet, or literally get a facelift, the ringing in of the new year brings unanimous hope and optimism.
Cfx has had a phenomenal, fun, adventurous, and productive year, and it’s our sincerest wish that all of you did as well. Cheers to 2017, wishing you and yours blessings of health and happiness. Happy New Year!

The theme was inspired by a surprise trip to Europe. Chris and Megan transformed their living room from a mid-century modern sitting area to a hotbed of European landmarks and influences. Be sure to follow Recyclart for all your holiday crafting inspiration.
We just wanted to take a minute to reflect on how thankful we are for all of our Cfxtended family! From our Cfxers (past and present), to clients (prospective and tried-and-true), to our awesome marketing partners — we would not be here without your friendship and support throughout the years.
"Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it." —William Arthur Ward
So, thank you for all your contributions — large and small — to our success and fortitude! We are truly blessed!

Perhaps it’s a growing awareness in the community, or perhaps it’s just a product of getting older … either way, it’s hard to deny the importance of recycling. In addition to being die-hard recyclers here at Cfx, Inc., we also utilize additional conservation methods such as composting. Composting is the process of salvaging and reusing decayed organic material, primarily as a source of plant fertilizer, and ultimately with the goal of reducing waste in the process.
Cfx extends a portion of their rectory office space to the nonprofit organizations St. Louis Earth Day and Green Dining Alliance, who are big time players in conservation and environmentalism in St. Louis and its surrounding communities. Holding events throughout each year, St. Louis Earth Day and Green Dining Alliance are advocates for all things environmentally-conscious. It was through their encouragement and influence that Cfx came to compost leftover foods, along with many other lesser known practices such as recycling electronic equipment, pharmaceuticals, and many other items most would simply throw in their trash can.
Doing business only a handful of miles away from the West Lake Landfill, all it takes is one drive by on the highway with the window cracked to smell the detriment that resides under the mountains of trash people produce every day, not to mention the radioactive waste that is known to exist in that landfill (along with countless others). While we can’t fix our waste problem overnight, we can all contribute to a better tomorrow. Cfx invites you to join us in raising awareness for more effective and responsible recycling and waste disposal.
