Sustainability Starts with Me, Myself, and I - Sustainability: business, life, environment | Taiga Company | sustainability | Scoop.it

What are the most common excuses for not "doing the green thing"?  Convenience?  Lack of education/ information?   Unclear value?  How do you go green conveniently yet still have your eco actions add up?

A good portion of our sustainability consulting is really about transformation.  Specifically, rethinking approaches to how we do business.  On an individual level, personal transformation takes form in discovering hidden treasures in daily habits that unite conscious habits and routines with eco awareness and eco actions to take.   Most of us recognize that change can be unsettling.  It can be scary, and too often it is just easier to slip back into a traditional and comfortable way of doing things.  However, implementing effective sustainable change does not have to be a laboring process.  Yet, to manifest global sustainability change, it takes each of us doing our part.  How can we make it easier?
