My business qualifies for the Green America Gold Green Business Certification.
Why This Matters
I believe that running a sustainable business is essential for the future of humanity.
We live on a finite planet with finite resources, finite space, and finite resilience.
And thus, everyone has a moral responsibility to live and work so that life continues.
What I Do
My business works to protect and preserve the environment.
I do this by giving presentations that: a) Inspire Respect for Nature, b) Show how you make a difference, and c) Promote kindness. [ See: Mission and Values ]
I write articles that show easy, practical actions people can take to make a difference.
These four articles are especially important.

🌿Transportation: I drive a hybrid car. In general, I fill the tank every four to six weeks. [ Note: During March 13, 2020 to March 7, 2021, I used 12 gallons of gas. So I drove almost 500 miles during 51 weeks with one tank of gas. ]
🌿Travel: I ride Amtrak for long trips.
🌿Utilities: I use as little as possible. And we have solar panels on the roof of our house. Our electric bills were negative for 10 months during 2022.
