One thought on “About the author”

  1. Hello – and thanks for the good and important work. I am trying to develop a sustainable social contract and license that will have accountability between merchant and consumer. With the planet in the middle, responsibility of sustainable practice is shared equally by merchants and consumers. One has to become truly real in their offerings and the other educated to the choice when being consumers. I do believe the exponential development or acceptance of sustainability as the right choice will be the responsibility of good marketing…sadly enough or thankfully enough. A marketing partnership of community (government) and media…then visual literacy can take hold to common thought. Once the data is in, health, wellness, eco management, alternative energy, people, planet and prosperity…it will be as common as common is. Naive yes… hopeful better yet. Any suggestions on the commercialzation of a school contract and license to bring merchants and consumers together for the purpose of sustainability and the positive ripple effect that it has on all things. Thanks.
