Why Size Matters

Posted on 01 October 2009

In our pursuit of a more sustainable world there are very distinct differences between huge corporations, large companies, small businesses, and micro businesses. The very size of a business can impose not-so-green sensibilities that conflict with earth-friendly efforts.

Mattel Greenwashes Barbie

Posted on 15 May 2008

As little girls we all wanted a Barbie Doll, as grown women we all wanted to be Barbie.  Face it, as the saying goes “the bitch has everything”, the dream house, car, and guy, not to mention she’s had every career under the sun.  Barbie’s been an astronaut, school teacher, nurse, business woman, Rock Star, and we’ve [...]
