Intex Solutions
David is the President of Intex Solutions - headquartered in Montebello, Calif. - a national company providing commercial carpet, stone and textile care, as well as emergency water damage remediation services. David had long been a supporter of NRDC when he learned it would be opening its LEED Platinum-certified Santa Monica office in November 2003. He called the Santa Monica office administrator to offer - and ultimately get agreement to - his company’s cleaning and care services at no charge. "I wanted to donate my services to NRDC, I wanted the building to look good and, of course, it was a good way to get the word out about Intex."

David learned of E2 through Southern California Chapter Tim Sexton, whose children attend the same school as David’s, and from talks with Nancy Golden, NRDC’s Southern California Development Director. After attending a couple of EcoSalons and hearing E2’s pitch, he decided "it was a no-brainer" to join, which he did in the spring of 2004. "It was clear that E2 was providing what can still be, unfortunately, a really unique voice from the business community on environmental legislation. I looked at the things E2 had accomplished, I could see it was an organization that was active in making a difference, and that it was not just people sitting around talking."

In 2006, David was very active himself helping E2 on its Southern California advocacy efforts. In the summer of 2006, David was among a handful of E2 Southern California members who organized letters of support from Southern California businesses, placed phone calls into key legislative and executive offices, and attended district office meetings to help make the business case in favor of AB 32, California’s Global Warming Solutions Act. In 2007, he participated in writing letters and attending meetings to build support for SB 974, the Clean Ports Investment Act by Senator Alan Lowenthal (D-Long Beach). What David appreciates most about E2 are the results it achieves. "Our activities have, for the most part, been really effective. That is the most important thing. In some cases, our message has given legislators ’cover’ to push environmental policies that they have been wanting to do, but perhaps would not have pursued because of a perceived lack of business support."
