Plastic in The Oceans - 5 Minutes About Sustainability

Plastic in The Ocean, Businesses Are The Key

Anyone who knows me knows I'm passionate about a lot of things but nothing is more important to me than helping people learn about the plastic in the oceans and the fact that we need to do something about it. Also, I believe the Entrepreneurs and small business owners are the key to economic recovery as well as the key to solving this problem.

We like to believe the world is a great big place and it just works in spite of anything we might do but that's not the case. In reality, the Oceans are the key to everything that makes it possible for us to survive here. It provides us with oxygen, it cleans carbon out of the air and other parts of the ecosystem. It provides us with food and other resources. In many ways and for many people, the ocean is the key to the bottom level of Maslow's Hierarchy of needs.More...

Eco-Friendly 5K in Los Angeles

Green Running Events

There’s a new race organizer in town; Heather Heath, founder of Green Running Events.

The concept is easy, put on 5K races around the Los Angeles area and structure them so they have the least amount of impact on the environment.

You’d think it’s a no brainer but you’d be amazed how much paper, plastic and glass ends up in the landfill after an event like this.

Now may be a good time to mention that www.GreenRunningEvents.org is a Green Certified business through www.GreenCertifiedWeb.org and we’re proud to have them. More...

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...

Green Business Certification at www.GreenCertifiedWeb.org

Green Certification Need

I mentioned a few weeks ago my concern about how Green Business Certification companies might be forcing people to incorporate non-green practices into their businesses just to pass a test and get a really cool logo on their site. I’m also concerned that if someone is only a few questions away from getting their green certification, they might fudge the truth just a little just to make sure. More...

Does Green Business Certification Make Sense?

Need for Green Certification

In my very first blog article, I mentioned the American College of Veterinary Dermatology and the fact that making a minor modification to their site meant saving 65 trees a year and about 144 thousand pounds of CO2. Recently, I commented on Corporate Colocation and the fact they will reduce their CO2 by about 4 Million tons per year. Both of these are significant achievements in reduced impact on the ecology of the planet. More...
