Green Business


My business qualifies for the Green America Gold Green Business Certification.

Green America, Certified Green Business Seal


Why This Matters

I believe that managing a sustainable business is essential for the future of humanity.

We live on a small 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

✅ Focus

My business works to protect and preserve the environment.

I do this by taking photos that I use in talks to inspire Respect for Nature. [ See: Mission and Values ]

I write articles that show easy actions people can take.

These three are especially important.

🌿10 Ways to Save Money on Gas; Save money by using less gas.

🌿Endangered Birds; Learn about why birds matter and what can be done.

🌿Pest Control Chemicals; Protect your health.

I write a blog that informs, entertains, and inspires. [ See: Steve Kaye’s Blog ]
