Being Green - Bottling Sunshine

Hi Folks:

Friday once again, and time for this week’s ‘Being Green‘ post. Of all of the world’s current ills, one of the largest and most well known is global warming – sometimes called the ‘greenhouse effect’. There are essentially two strands to this problem: one is that plants like […]

Being Green - Fair Trade

Hi Folks:

Friday once again, and time for this week’s ‘Being Green‘ post. Imagine getting up every morning and going to work, but discovering on payday that you have to pay your boss for being there… Sounds silly, right? Consider then that of the roughly 8 million tonnes of coffee […]

Being Green: Green Consumers

Hi Folks:

Friday once again, and time for this week’s ‘Being Green‘ post. The title for this post was inspired by a couple of articles I read this week. The first was, “It’s not easy being a green consumer“, and it begins with:

Green consumerism has the ring of being […]

Being Green in 2011

Hi Folks:

Friday once again, and time for this week’s ‘Being Green‘ post. In the links below you’ll find several posts from people talking about the best ‘green’ topics of 2010 and predictions for the green future of 2011, so I won’t repeat them all here. I will say that […]

The talk was called, “Biomimicry in Action: Using Nature-Based Principals to Promote Sustainable […]

Being Green - Getting 'Buy-In'

Hi Folks:

Friday once again, and time for this week’s ‘Being Green‘ post. The title for this post is ‘Getting Buy-In‘, and since developing a sustainability strategy affects everyone in your home or business and extends out to include suppliers and clients as well, I thought I’d toss out a […]

Being Green - Pursuing Perfection?

Hi Folks:

Friday once again, and time for this week’s ‘Being Green‘ post. I wasn’t going to write about this, but the biggest ‘green’ news of late seems to be the class action suit filed in the US against the USGBC and their LEED certification; after reading the articles and […]

Being Green - Playing Games With Sustainability

Hi Folks:

Friday once again, and time for this week’s ‘Being Green‘ post. Before I get to that, however, I want to add a couple of things. First, in last Friday’s ‘Being Green’ post I talked about taking the ‘long view‘ on making sustainable choices. This past week I came […]

Being Green - The Long View

Hi Folks!

Happy Friday!! The basis for this week’s ‘Being Green‘ post comes in part from a couple of articles I read recently on the ED+C magazine website. The first, titled, ‘An Ethical Equation’ was quite surprising to me and begins with the following:
