Gabbing about sustainability today. Sustainability, and its cousin – green – are two words that have many meanings and are often misunderstood. Both words often are perceived as political buzzwords to be ignored. Some people think of sustainability and green as a mainstream way of life. Whatever the “truth” may be, the basic principles of “green” and sustainability have been around ever since humans have walked the earth.
As sustainability and green becomes marketed more, especially for products, there has been a direction towards marketing towards women. Yet what about men? The article “Is sustainability a woman’s business?” laid the basis for this conversation. As both women and men research products and companies more, how a company considers sustainability and how it shares that information is becoming a vital factor.
