Imagine someone doing something nice for you right now.  A sincere compliment or holding the elevator for you.  It's a good feeling, isn't it?  Kindness has the ability to change us, and our emotions, immediately. 

The pursuit of a sustainable lifestyle goes beyond just ‘greening’ your life.  Personal sustainability is a mindset change that shifts the personal value drivers in daily activities.  As a professional and sustainability consultant, I see how kindness, generosity and willingness are intrinsically linked to a sustainable lifestyle or green living.  While we are here on this planet, at this precise time in history, many of us want to make a difference in the way we treat our environment.  Many of us want to make a significant contribution to the role business takes in shaping our economy, society, and environment.
  • Kindness in living green is not only being kind to our planet, but kind to each other.  Compassion for where each of us is in relation to the green path.

  • Generosity in green living is not only sharing eco awareness and eco resources, but also going above and beyond to inspire, promote, and encourage others on the green path.

  • Willingness in green living is demonstrating your values through eco action and generating results. 

Throughout our lifetime, there comes a time when we as individuals sit down and lay out a path for personal development.
