I am very glad to see this post. Thank you for including it. Part of the challenge this world faces now is how to build healthy economies without depleting ecological or human resources, and it MUST happen from within the current system (as well as from outside it, but that's not as pertinent to this article). If you are a business owner, a entrepreneur or just working to pay the bills: please explore your local education system. There are likely resources that you can tap in order to increase the efficiency of your business. If not, check this out: sustainable.colorado.edu. It's online. Disclaimer: I have been involved in this program previously, but that means I know the genuine value, right?!
Again, thanks for the post!
