A SIMPLE IDEA CAN CHANGE THE WORLD
ADAM A. LEWIS, VP RELATIONSHIP MANAGER, BUSINESS BANKING, CHASE
Description: A close-up of Adam Lewis switches to several views of a colorful toy tugboat produced by Green Toys.
Adam: I like companies that are in the local Bay Area that produce something.
ROBERT VON GOEBEN AND LAURIE HYMAN, OWNERS GREEN TOYS
Description: The camera zooms out from a view of just a hand holding the toy boat to a view of Rovert Von Goeben and Laurie Hyman.
Laurie: All of the Green Toys products are made from 100% recycled milk jugs.
Description: The view shifts to the pink cab of a toy truck coming out of a mold, then to a conveyor of small cups filled with melted pink plastic. The view shifts to Robert walking across the factory floor, then to a view of the floor as seen by Robert. The camera focuses close in on Robert's hand as he picks up the raw plastic beads Green Toys uses to produce their toys.
Robert: We manufacture locally, warehouse locally, and do everything in a very small carbon footprint.
Description: A worker joins green plastic parts. Another worker takes the finished green toy recycling trucks and packages them for shipping. The camera shifts to a close-up of Robert, then to a wide-angle view of the factor from a robotic arm high above the floor, then to a worker assembling toy trucks.
We now export our toys to over 75 countries. Once your market goes global, you have to have a lot of product to be able to sell, which is inventory, which is planning, which is cash.
Description: A close-up of Robert.
We needed some help.
Description: The view shifts between views of Adam and views of Robert and Laurie speaking to the camera, Robert and Laurie discussing their business needs with Adam, and Robert creating toy designs.
Adam: Because Chase is their bank, they can grow internationally.
Laurie: We needed to understand how to do business in the international market. And really, Chase has helped us so much.
Adam: It's very rewarding to see the growth of the company, and to know that I had a part in helping make that happen.
Description: Laurie speaks excitedly next to Robert, then the view shifts to a young girl picking up an empty milk jug and placing it in a recycling bin.
Laurie: You take a milk jug and you put it next to this toy, and you say, "This created this."
Description: Robert is facing the camera, holding a toy school bus. He playfully raises it in front of his face, then lowers it enough that the camera shows his face as he smiles. The scene shifts momentarily to a close-up of Laurie, then to a toy airplane.
It’s an inspiration not just for kids, but for anyone to come up with new ideas, new businesses, to hopefully change the world or at least make a little bit of a difference.
Description: The screen fades to black.
