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.
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 ]
