Environmental education made easy. 
January 2015
Are you wondering what happened to January? The new year often begins with big plans, but the calendar fills up with meetings and unexpected tasks. Soon the days are spent putting out fires and the well-laid plans for the new year are put on the shelf. Sound familiar?

Unfortunately, communicating with residents about your agency's plans and programs may be one of those shelved tasks. You know that communicating regularly makes a difference, but you just don't have the time to research, write, and produce quality publications.

If you are short on time, let us help. For more than 20 years, we've been helping people like you make communication a priority with a minimal amount of staff time. We can make your job easier and help your agency look good and serve your community well. This month's feature article gives tips for communicating the importance of environmental responsibility with your local businesses. If you want to know more about how we can help, call or email me.

Stay on track and keep recycling,

People. Planet. Profit. Yes, together!
Timothy J. Mohin is a corporate insider. His book Changing Business From the Inside Out: A Treehugger's Guide to Working in Corporations, explores how corporations can do well by doing good

According to Mohin: 
  • Business is the dominant social institution of our time. Corporations "are now large enough to affect change on a global scale."
  • "Increasing numbers of stakeholders are demanding responsibility from corporations."
  • Business leaders "know that in the long run it is cheaper to act responsibly now than to dig out from a [public relations] disaster later."

Mohin offers a practical guide on how to "steer the corporate supertanker toward doing good for people and our planet." He says corporate responsibility is defined as balancing the 'triple bottom line' which is essentially 'people, planet, and profit."

Some of Mohin's skills for success are helpful for increasing environmental responsibility in all facets of communities: communicate; lead through influence; make change painless by focusing on the ways it improves profitability or efficiency; and, above all, have passion for the cause.
