Jacquie Ottman: The New Rules of Green Marketing
Jacquie Ottman was working with Fortune 500 companies, government officials, Hollywood celebrities, educators and plain old consumers back when green was just a color. She knew the rules were changing so she wrote a book about the strategies needed to play by the new rules.

Ann Cooper: Renegade Lunch Lady
Ann's life's work? To transform how we feed our children in school each day, from highly processed to highly nourishing food - one school lunch at a time. Ann has formed a network of people throughout the United States and the world working to change the way our children are eating. They are challenging outdated school district spending policies, commodity-based food service organizations, political platforms that fail to mention child health and ultimately the USDA. Imagine - she wants our kids to have wholesome, nutritious, delicious food at school. OMG - another "I can't wait" for Mrs. Green. This show sponsored by The Fairfax Companies.
Peter Dourlein - VP of Planning, Design & Construction, University of Arizona

Sounds like the PERFECT guest for Mrs. Green. This show sponsored by The Fairfax Companies.
Rachel Lincoln Sarnoff - Healthy Child Healthy World
Honestly? I am at the point in my life that I believe almost every disease in the world is linked to some kind of environmental contaminants. Endless research would back up this bold statement. Get ready for Rachel to share some of that evidence linking everyday environmental contaminants to asthma, learning disabilities, obesity, cancer and more. The good news? Healthy Child translates the science and inspires parents and caregivers to create healthy environments where families can flourish. This powerful organization has ignited the movement that empowers parents to protect children from harmful chemicals. My heart is soaring already. This show sponsored by The Fairfax Companies.
Andrew Kurth, Lauren Sheller, and Tiffany Hayes - Arizona Beef Council
I know where the beef IS. I want to know where it is coming from, what the cows are fed during their life time, how they are raised, and how they are killed. My journey as Mrs. Green has led me to find new meaning in the phrase "cruelty free." I admit to being a carnivore. I now eat less beef and I believe the beef industry can use some serious scrutiny. Hopefully, the folks from the Arizona Beef Council will have lots of answers. I know it will be an informative show.
