Leading by example is the best way to practice sustainable and Green marketing.

“It seems many people these days are jumping on the sustainability bandwagon. However, not all that are on board are necessarily truly concerned about all the aspects related to sustainability (economy, environment, & socio-cultural). It seems as if they would rather market the idea than actually fully commit. Do you think it wise to market the sustainable aspects of a business or company, despite a lack of whole-hearted commitment to sustainability? Is this yet another example of ‘green-washing’? And if trying to promote and market the sustainable components of a business, what is the best way to go about doing so?”
Great topic Nikki,
In 2003, Janet and I purchased a 1956 home designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. It rekindled my interest in architecture. I had studied it for three years before I started working for my Father’s industrial ad agency. When searching for the evolution of Mr. Wright’s Organic architecture, I learned of the U.S. Green Building Council and have been a big promoter since. Link to the Boulter House site.
