In honor of earth day on April 22, our next blog series will feature some tips for creating more sustainable business practices. Let’s start this series of posts with a disclaimer: I do not consider myself an expert in sustainability. However, I probably know enough to be dangerous.

When real dollars can be made from environmentalism, then environmentalism is good for you and good for business. This epitomizes “making green from green.”
