As green/sustainable pioneers we are at the cutting edge of a new era.
Some days are filled with excitement - new ideas, new movement, and new success stories. It's uplifting to see evidence as communities, businesses, and governments take actions that are more sustainable. We are inspired to change our own actions.

We are inundated with the news of the day that doesn't have anything to do with a more sustainable world. We lose track of what's happening in the green arena.
