No matter what niche your profession sees you in, and what other roles you fill as a human living on Earth, our only home in this vast universe, the “green” trend is one that is well-worth paying close attention to. Helping to shape our business practices, and leading to a more Earth-friendly approach to the products that we create and sell, following a green path can also lead to positive and uplifting changes in personal habits, making the entire endeavor a winning one for each and every one of us.
