Below is a great video from TED of Interface Carpet's CEO Ray Anderson. Mr. Anderson's book, Mid-Course Correction was one of the first books I read on Sustainability and really got me thinking: If this guy can turn his company from a polluter to a sustainable operation, why can't all companies do the same? Ray has not just tried to "green-wash" his message, he is an active campaigner and believer in the power of Sustainable operations.
I had forgotten that one of the reasons Mr. Anderson was set down this path was due to the book I'm reading now, Ecology of Commerce by Paul Hawken. Paul Hawken describes how environmental actions don't need to come at the sacrifice of business profit.
Keep this in mind and think about how you can apply this to your home, business, church, or any operation you are involved with. Sustainability saves money and the environment and makes everyone happier along the way! You really can't argue with that one :)
