Maximizing your Energy through Working with Green Businesses

As a green business owner, I find that the more I focus on supporting and working with other organic, sustainable, fair trade, and progressive organizations, the more energy I have, the clearer my goals, and the better I feel about creating the kind of world I want to be in, on the planet I am proud to call home.

 

Whether you start a green business, run a green business, or help an existing green business grow, you have a chance, every day, to live your purpose and to be in tune with your values.

 

As a principal and thus directly responsible for the financial/environmental/people-oriented impact of a web design/development company, I do my best to abide by our stated operating principles:

 

  • To create a more compassionate world.
  • To practice honesty in business.
  • To help like-minded people network, support, and empower one another.
  • To make a fair profit.
  • To retain our integrity in supporting social justice, environmental sustainability, and a safe, just, cooperative society.

 

I do believe that everyone has a choice on how to focus and "tune in" their energy, and as someone who believes in the importance of doing the best you can with where you're at, I believe that committing to the daily practice of running and sustaining a green-focused business, that works to support other organizations with a focus on environmental and social responsibility, keeps me in line with the "right path" for my own life.

 

Maximize your energy and live your own values.

 

Do the right thing.

 

Make a choice, and stand by your choice.

 

I believe all of us who are standing for the same values will help build a new vision of positivity, sustainability, abundance, and sufficiency for our planet and all species on it.

 

Support green businesses by either starting a new one, helping an existing one grow, or purchasing from a green business in your community.

  • Howdy would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using? I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m having a hard time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique. P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

  • An attention-grabbing dialogue is worth comment. I believe that it is best to write more on this matter, it might not be a taboo subject but typically people are not sufficient to talk on such topics. To the next. Cheers

  • The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

So allow me to reword this…. Thanks for the meal!! But yeah, thanx for spending some time to talk about this topic here on your website.

  • Hello this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

  • I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

  • Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  • Unquestionably believe that which you stated. Your favourite reason seemed to be on the internet the simplest factor to take note of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed whilst other people consider worries that they plainly don’t recognize about. You managed to hit the nail upon the highest and defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , folks can take a signal. Will likely be again to get more. Thank you
