Environmental Presentations that Sell

Last weekend, I participated in a huge event. It was really big for 3 reasons and I’m going to share them with you now…

Maurice DiMino – The Sicilian Mentor

Maurice DiMino - The Sicilian Mentor

 I want to introduce you to someone who believes very strongly in what we are doing here. Maurice DiMino; Maurice is one of the most powerful speakers you can ever hope to see and more importantly, he is willing to teach anyone how to be just as good as he is at speaking in public on stage.

If you want to know more about Maurice and if you want to learn what Maurice has been teaching me, you can register for his next boot camp, he holds them twice a year.

Let’s face it, if I’m going to get people to understand what I have to say, speaking in public is a valuable skill. So this is the first big thing, I got to learn from a true master, Maurice DiMino. More...

What is Ecology?

Plastic in the Pacific Ocean

It all starts when someone accidently drops a water bottle which goes down a storm drain then floats out to the ocean where 7 to 20 years later, it winds up in this big pile of plastic. Over the next several years, it breaks down into tiny pieces; the fish eat it, birds eat it, turtles eat and they all die. More...

The Pizza Place and Paper Water Bottle

Pizza The Mountaineer's Diet

As a Mountaineer, I’m deeply involved in fitness so it’s not often I get to splurge on the really tasty food. As a computer programmer, it should be no surprise my favorite splurge food is Pizza. One reason I'll never be a true Tree Hugger, I always end a backpacking trip with either a Burger or a Pizza (not tofu and quinoa, I eat quinoa on the trail).

 A few days ago, we decided to try a new pizza place in the Silverlake area of Los Angeles called Tomato Pie Pizza Joint. Well, they’re not new, they’ve been around for a couple of years but they’re new to us.

Anyway, when I went to pick up our pizza, I noticed something I’ve never seen before; Boxed Water. More...
