|Favorite non-profit organization
||Douleurs Sans Frontières, a group of doctors rebuilding health care systems and training HC personnel in areas affected by armed conflicts and natural disaster. Environmental Defense Fund for being a very active participant in rethinking how we live. Green Science & Policy and Union of Concerned Scientists for adding their much needed voice in the fight against toxic products and climate change.
|If I could change one thing in the world, it would be:
||Tougher legislation on pollution.
|I think the most important environmental issue is:
||Addressing climate change from a CO2 emissions perspective is tackling only half of the environmental challenge we're facing. Toxic pollution is the other half.
|The greenest thing I do is:
||Live by 5 principles: reduce, reuse, recycle, replace and reinvent (how I live).
|What does "sustainability" mean to me:
||Consider the entire life cycle of products I buy. Think of the short and long terms consequences of what I do.
|Why am I passionate about being green?
||It is such a natural thing to do.
||I am passionate about my kids, love the Big Blue. What scares me the most is aphaty. Favorite author is Albert Camus. Favorite quote is from Albert Einstein: "We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them."
I have worked in the personal and surface care business for the last 7+ years. I am in it to tackle both environmental and health toxicity issues.
