Green & Ethical Business

-- Quote of the Day --

“…As you get into your business - I think there are a large group of people who have an innate passion and good will towards men. The ethics that are taught in families, communities, churches and schools are the things we fall back on when it comes to the interaction with people, not only in business but in the neighborhood. …Business ethics amounts to treating people the way you would want to be treated. … not only people though but with animals and the environment; a growing awareness, being more understanding and forgiving. …Fair trade is sitting down with the individuals and working out what is fair, creating a favorable economical environment. People need to be treated fairly, to be valued as individuals, to be respected as an individual, and your needs are taken care of. Fair trade is a mutual situation of cooperation.

~ Bruce McMullin

  1. I agree with Bruce McMullin. Ultimately, each of us lives on this planet interdependently. Every action we do greatly affects everything around us and may even bounce right back to ourselves. There are many options to keep your business efficient and profitable without risking your surroundings. :]
