It Comes Down to People My Friend…

In Ohio, Ben Lupo, a wastewater company owner is going to jail for dumping unclean fracking water into a river. His helper, Michael Guesman, was sentenced to 300 hours of community service and three years of probation. The  court didn’t put Ben’s company in jail, it put Ben in jail. If corporations “are people my friend, to quote Mitt Romney, they booked the wrong guy. The courts imprisoned the enabler “disposing of the body,” but didn’t go after “the person” who murdered the water to begin with...

Living Room Conversation Starters

Joan Blades of MoveOn.org, Mom’s Rising has a new group of partners focused on what’s broken –  our ability to have a civil conversation covering polar opposite issues. Many of us are in total agreement about core issues, i.e. clean air, non-toxic food and furnishings, living wage jobs, fresh and plentiful water… yet the moment that politics is injected, lines are drawn and opinions are either heated or withdrawn. Why does this happen and can we change it? Joan and her group at LivingRoom Conversations.org provides FREE...

Business Climate Change – Then and Now

They say that it’s darkest before the dawn. The use of the 4-letter word DIRE seems to be popping up in article after article when it comes to Climate Change; but when we take a hindsight snapshot, the dawn of HOPE is firmly here. With the help of our speakers (who worked through the early activation time) we see a different, more positive picture taking hold. In 2007 For Benefit Corporations didn’t exist and greenwash marketing prevailed, but seven years later over 950 Certified B Corps from 32 countries and 60 industries inspire...

Three Women Threaten Enbridge

Wow. Who would have thought that three women could be so scary. Lansing, MI – Three activists from Michigan Coalition Against Tar Sands (MI-CATS) were found guilty Friday in an Ingham County court on charges of trespassing and resisting and obstructing a police officer. The verdict followed a September protest against Enbridge’s tar sands pipeline. The three face sentences of 2-3 years. Though not considered a flight risk, the three women were denied bail and are forced to remain in custody until sentencing on March 5, 2014. [emphasis mine]...

Who is Moving the Market Now?

While some companies such as Patagonia and Forbo Flooring lead with sustainable products because it’s the right thing to do, other companies needs a push and a shove towards the right groups who will most likely buy and also talk up their products before venturing forward. Market surveys provide that push to sustainability. How to marketers view consumers? The 2013 Cone Communications/Echo Global CSR Study filtered for personal responsibility to better understand how to communicate products messages and found out the following below....

Frack That Job

The following is in reaction to the public comment session on fracking held Jan. 6th in Long Beach, CA. For more information and context. It was like listening to an intervention — one by one by one, representatives of organizations, businesses, doctors, scientists and citizens stood at the microphones and expressed their outrage, concern, and proof that the practice of fracking was dangerous to individuals and their communities.  Their comments were aimed at regulations surrounding fracking in California, only the formal document...
